WATCH: Southern Mom Shoots Kids’ iPhone To Teach ‘Em About The Evils Of Social Media


Some parents take away their kids’ cell phones as a punishment. However, one crazed Southern mom decided to take it a step further and recorded herself shooting her children’s iPhone with a shotgun, then smashing the phone with a sledgehammer to send a message to social media users.

In the viral video, a mother is seen with a shotgun in hand and the iPhone perched on a tree trunk. Before shooting the phone, the mother says:

“I hereby denounce the effects that social media have on my children. Their disobedience and their disrespect.”

Her first shot was right on target and blew the cell phone into pieces. The mother then shoots again and orders the person behind the camera to record her children and the mother says:

“I refuse to be cursed. I refuse to be disobeyed. I take back my role as your parent.”

However, for the mother, two shots were not enough so she grabbed a trusty sledgehammer to finish the job. This time with a sledgehammer in hand the mother yells:

“My children’s lives are more important to me than any electronic on this earth. My children’s lives are more important to me than any electronic on this earth. I refuse to have them influenced in negative ways. Contacting people they don’t know, being involved in drama they don’t need to be in, and being in trouble at school for having phones out.”

Unfortunately for the mother, her attempt is ill-fated and social media will continue to live on despite her unhappiness. However, I do hear that they have nice psychiatric wards in the south. If there are two lessons that we can learn, it’s that you can’t break crazy and social media makes heroes of us all, even those who never planned to participate.
