Facebook Live has been around for less than a year and, already, numerous videos have gone viral because of it. While the reasons for each of the video’s virility are the cause of very different circumstances (which include: attempted murder, having sex with your boyfriend and accidentally tagging your father, eating until you’re about to explode, stealing a cop car, and so on) these videos have impacted us all in a way that has made each of these stories newsworthy.
For some reason, criminals have really taken to the idea of live streaming their crimes, which is not only self-serving and foolish, but has made it quite easy for police to both identify and convict these fame whores and their dumb decisions.
Another unusual thing we’ve been using Facebook Live for, evidently, is filming ourselves having sex. Now I don’t know about you, but that’s something I don’t want people seeing, nor would I imagine you wanting to see it. I feel as though having someone watch me (or most of us, for that matter) have sex would deliver the opposite of the desired effect, and would instead become something that would suppress your appetite and further encourage you to skip your next meal. But enough about me.
What I’ve done below is summarized the wildest things that have occurred on Facebook Live to date and posted them all in one place for your viewing pleasure. Some of these are NSFW. Enjoy.
Three Men Shot At Close Range In Virginia
This one’s flat out scary. The broadcast witnesses Virginia native, T.J. Williams, and two friends (all in their 20s) hanging out in their car casually listening to music. Then, out of nowhere, you hear several series of close range gunshots fired.
After the shots are fired, the phone drops to the ground and there is complete silence. It’s chilling. Eventually, you hear one of the injured men call for an ambulance, which arrives roughly 10 minutes later. The video continues for about an hour until the battery on the phone dies. The incident was later confirmed by police, who said the victims had all sustained life-threatening injuries.
Philando Castile in Minnesota
I know you’ve heard about this one. On July 6th, Philando Castile was fatally shot by a police officer in St. Paul. Castile was driving with his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her 4-year-old daughter when he was pulled over by two officers.
After being asked for his license and registration, Castile allegedly told the officer he was licensed to carry a weapon and had one in the car. The officer retorted by telling him not to move, then shot him in the arm “four or five times.”
Immediately after the shooting, Reynolds live-streamed a video of the aftermath, with her communicating with the officer as Castile lied there, near dead. Castile died at 9:37 that night.
Man Streams Himself Stealing (And Joyriding) Cop Car
OK get this, a man by the name of John Pinney, 25, stole a police car and streamed the entire event on Facebook Live using an officer’s iPad. Police were called after Pinney offered a woman a ride in the patrol car.
Police say the chase lasted between 30-40 minutes and that Pinney reached speeds of 120 miles per hour in the chase. As he drove, the footage captured Pinney shouting things like, “Alright so I got cops behind me n shit,” and “This is the shit I wanna go out to!” while casually listening to music, which included Fireflies by Owl City.
“I would encourage every criminal out there to Facebook Live their crimes so that we can catch you a lot easier and use that Facebook Live at your trial to get a better conviction,” Tulsa police told CBS News.
Drunk Couple Streams Themselves Having Sex, Tags Her Dad
This is every dad/daughter/guy who’s fucking daughter’s worst nightmare. A young, drunk and dumb couple foolishly decided to broadcast themselves boning on Facebook Live. The video shows the two engaging in raucous sex in just about every room of a very expensive looking vacation home.
But this isn’t even the half of it. What’s worse is the dude mistakenly tagged this girl’s father, who then had to witness all this happen live in the vacation home that he told the two not to visit. Check out the NSFW video here.
Two Girls Expose Cheating Boyfriend In Devious Plan
These two ladies figured if their cheating asshole boyfriend was going to get exposed, the world was going to see it. Basically, this guy was dating two women, telling each of them they were his one and only.
For some reason, this dude gave one of these lady’s the passwords to “his shit” and she did some snooping, eventually finding out that he was dating another girl, who she befriended.
The two then devised a plan to confront him at the same time and stream it all on Facebook Live. As you’ll see, this is exactly what happens. The two confront this man (who’s toting a couple bags of Chinese food in anticipation for sex) and lay into him. Looking like a total idiot, the guy counters with the only suitable response: “You caught me fair and square.”
Man Successfully Eats In-N-Out Burger With 40 Patties
I absolutely love fast food and, as a Canadian, have never had the pleasure of indulging in some In-N-Out fare. But thanks to Foodbeast, I no longer want to. The website’s Facebook page recently hosted a challenge for one unlucky man to eat a 50×50, which is a burger with 50 patties.
To keep a long story short (the video is a little over an hour) the dude eats 40 patties, which the site insists is a record. You will see the man’s once infectious enthusiasm in the beginning is drained with each patty, and by the end of it he looks like he’s about to die or yak at any minute.
Wingsuit Jumper Dies Broadcasting Stunt
Experienced Italian wingsuit jumper, Armin Schmieder, 28, wanted to bring his fans on one of his jumps by broadcasting what was supposed to be a death-defying jump on Facebook Live through his GoPro camera saying.
Soon after the jump, the video footage went dark, and viewers heard an audible shout. One viewer asked that he write or say something so they knew he was OK, but there was no response. Officials in Switzerland later confirmed that Schmieder was killed in the accident, though they weren’t sure of the cause, unsure whether it was a mistake on his part, or a wingsuit malfunction.
Juvenile Teens Live Stream Threesome While Skipping Class
Two very illegal teens (one 14, the other 15) decided to skip school, have sex, and stream the act on Facebook Live, which four of their classmates enthusiastically viewed during class, according to a Milwaukee County search warrant. The warrant states the two juvenile girls in the video could be charged with “Exposing a child to harmful material.”
According to the students who viewed the content, the videos include a 14-year-old girl, a 15-year-old girl, and 15-year-old boy engaging in sex and sex acts. It was almost immediately removed from Facebook, for obvious reasons.
Man Murders Aunt and Uncle (Etc.) And Films Himself Fleeing The Police
A man by the name of Michael Dale Vance Jr., 38, streamed two videos on Facebook Live while committing a menagerie of crimes.
As of the recording of his videos, Vance was on the hook for two counts of first-degree murder (his aunt and uncle, who he tried to decapitate), one count of unauthorized use of a car, and another for firearm possession after a felony conviction. He was on the run in Oklahoma city after opening fire on two police officers. Vance then fled the scene in a police car. Later, he shot a woman and stole her car. I’m not making this up. He posted his two videos while fleeing from the police.
“What’s up, y’all?” Vance saysat one point. “Letting y’all know, look, this is real. See, that’s a fucking gun. That’s the real deal. It ain’t a joke. This ain’t a prank.” Police later confirmed Vance was killed after a shootout with police.
