Dad Shoots Daughter’s Laptop Over Facebook

    March 7, 2012

In Albermarle, North Carolina, a fed-up father took his frustrations out on his daughter’s laptop after reading her Facebook page. On Wednesday, Tommy Jordan shot and killed his daughter Hannah’s laptop in a domestic tit-for-tat battle he and his 15-year-old decided to take online.

The laptop ended up as the ultimate loser when Jordan emptied nine shots into it. The only saving grace–Jordan did stop and save his daughter’s data and pics before leveling the unknowing laptop proving his sensibility with computers and teenagers. He was also sharp enough to record the event on video.

On NBC’s “Today” show, Tommy, his wife Amy and Hannah shared with viewers that the video had already had over 31 million views on YouTube. Father and daughter now openly admit they both overreacted by taking their family feud on screen. Tommy says he has a great daughter, but she’ll stay grounded for the time being and he is making no plans to replace her deceased device.


I don’t believe that Tommy Jordan didn’t know it was possible that his shooting up a laptop video would go viral @todayshow(image) 5 hours ago via TweetDeck ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto
