When your dad works in IT, it’s probably not a good idea to write a Facebook post bashing him and your mother, all the while thinking that because he’s blocked he’ll never see it. A teen in North Carolina found that out the hard way this week. In fact, when her dad discovered the secret post, he took a .45 semiautomatic pistol to his daughter’s laptop, and filmed it all.
The dad, Tommy Jordan, took issue with his 15-year-old daughter’s online rant about chores. So he want on a rant of his own. He explains why in the description of his YouTube video:
My daughter thought it would be funny/rebellious/cool to post on her Facebook wall just how upset she was and how unfair her life here is; how we work her too hard with chores, never pay her for chores, and just in general make her life difficult.
She chose to share this with the entire world on Facebook and block her parent’s from seeing it. Well, umm… she failed. As of the end of this video, she won’t have to worry anymore about posting inappropriate things on Facebook…
Maybe a few kids can take something away from this… If you’re so disrespectful to your parents and yourself as to post this kind of thing on Facebook, you’re deserving of some tough love. Today, my daughter is getting a dose of tough love.
In the video, he can be seen sitting in a lawn chair, smoking a cigarette, and reading the post. He explains that he had just fixed his daughter’s computer, spending over $100 doing so, and didn’t appreciate finding the post, which calls the parents “slaves.” After about seven minutes reading the letter and explaining why she’s wrong, the father then kicks it up a notch and pulls out his gun.
“That right there is your laptop,” Jordan while showing a computer laying on the ground. “This right here is my .45.” He then proceeds to shoot nine “exploding hollow point” rounds into the laptop. See for yourself (content warning for some language):
“Oh yeah and after that comment you made about your mom, your mom told me to be sure I put one in there for her,” he adds. “So…that one’s from her.”
The video, entitled “Facebook Parenting: For the troubled teen,” has reached viral status. It has been viewed almost 1.5 million times since being posted two days ago.
“Today was probably the most disappointing day of my life as a father and I don’t know how to correct the situation,” Jordan writes on his own Facebook page. “Since I can’t seem to make any headway with my daughter on Facebook, I chose instead to remedy the problem permanently.”
