On March 16, 2023, Kirra Hart was invited to a sleepover by three girls she believed were her friends. However, the night took a dark turn when the girls began to assault Kirra, punching, slapping, and cutting her with a knife, all while capturing the gruesome act on camera. According to the “Justice for Kirra Hart” petition, Kirra’s parents discovered her severely injured and bleeding after she was released from the house. She was immediately rushed to the hospital for surgery to treat her extensive wounds.
The video of the attack quickly spread across the internet, with many viewers condemning the sadistic nature of the assailants and demanding they be held accountable for their actions. In the footage, Kirra can be seen cowering in a corner while one girl repeatedly punches her, and another wields a large knife used to threaten and stab her. A third girl films the brutal scene, capturing the blood, bruises, and cuts inflicted on Kirra’s face and body.

The three girls responsible for the horrifying attack have been identified as Rhynisha Grech, Chloe Denman, and Shanaya Grech. The petition alleges that Rhynisha and Chloe were the ringleaders behind the crime. Shockingly, Rhynisha even posted a TikTok video admitting to torturing Kirra for four hours. She later tried to deny her involvement on Instagram, claiming she took Kirra to the hospital after Chloe assaulted her.
As news of the attack spread, a GoFundMe campaign was established to help cover Kirra’s medical expenses. The fundraiser has garnered significant support, with more than $70,000 raised at the time of writing.
Social media users have rallied behind Kirra, demanding justice for the young victim. A petition seeking justice has garnered close to its goal of 500 signatures. The petition claims that the girls involved in the attack received only fines and warnings due to their age. However, some local media reports indicate that all three girls were legally charged. It remains unclear whether authorities have taken further legal action against the perpetrators, but social media users continue to call for their punishment.
As the story of Kirra Hart’s horrific attack continues to unfold, the outpouring of support for her is a testament to the power of collective action. With thousands of dollars raised for her treatment and countless voices demanding justice, it is evident that this tragic incident has resonated with people around the world.
