A Father Shoots His Daughter’s Laptop After She Writes A Disrespectful Facebook Post
This is absolutely insane. The guy in this video is Tommy Jordan and he’s the father of a rebellious 15-year-old girl. Recently, she took to her Facebook account to complain about all of the chores that she was being forced to do around the house. However, he got wind of it, printed out a copy of the letter, and decided to try and teach her a lesson about using social media to air out her family’s dirty laundry. How did he do that? Well, by reading the letter aloud—and then firing not one, not two, not three…but nine hollow-point bullets into the laptop. It was crazy enough to turn this clip into a viral video over the weekend.
Now, Jordan’s act brings up a lot of interesting questions. Like, who paid for that laptop? Wasn’t he worried at all about the bullets ricocheting off the laptop? What did his daughter say once she saw the video? And, was this really the best way to go about teaching his daughter a lesson? However, it also provides an answer to the question, “How is social media affecting the way that family members deal with one another?” In this video, you see Jordan chastising his daughter for putting her family’s business out there on the Internet. But he does that by, well, putting his family’s business out there on the Internet. Which should teach both of them a lesson. That lesson is that people are starting to see social media as an outlet for their frustration, even when it relates directly to their own families. And, in some cases, that could lead to a person putting their family business out there into the world. It’s not necessarily right. But that’s the way of the world right now.
Watch the video and think about how you might react to a disobedient child who writes things about you on Facebook. Or, if you’re that child, think about how your parents might feel if you wrote things about them on Facebook. Either way, what do you think about Jordan’s reaction here? We think it was absolutely insane. But, we have to admit: He had a point—and he made it. So, from that perspective, mission accomplished.
