People post some seriously screwed-up things on Facebook – for instance anything surrounding a birth. Or in some cases, their proudest number twos (seriously, I know this guy). I once witnessed, live, two Facebook friends go at it about one of their sexual dysfunctions. Spend any time on reddit, Failbook, or Lamebook, and you’re bound to see much, much worse.
But this one is right up there with the dumbest of things ever posted to Facebook.
The scene played out on video is shocking enough. The fact that someone recorded it and uploaded it to Facebook puts the icing on the wtfcake.
The incident, which occurred in St. Louis Missouri, involves a mother goading two young children to fight.
“Y’all better ball up some fists,” the woman yells at the two kids, who can’t be over 3 or 4 years old.
“Hit back…y’all better hit back, ball up your fists,” she continues.
The whole time, one or both of the young girls cry incessantly. Check out the shocking footage below:
“It’s just sickening and I feel like there should be some kind of criminal action taken,” an anonymous acquaintance of the mother in the video told FOX 2. “I couldn’t even watch the whole video. I had to stop it and look again. It was sad.”
She’s the one who alerted local news that the video has been posted to Facebook.
According to FOX 2, the Missouri Department of Social Services may be involved, but the department doesn’t comment on the details of current case.
Struggling parents out there, just know that you’re not really doing as bad as you think you are. You could be this mother.
