Family Members Play “Ebola Prank” On Child To Teach Him A Lesson
A family who thought it would be a good idea to reprimand a child who joked about having the Ebola virus by making him believe that he actually had it is now facing some backlash from the cyberworld after video of the “prank” went viral.
In the following video, parents in Las Vegas have a bit of fun with their child by taking his temperature and then telling him he has contracted Ebola.
The footage was uploaded to the Instagram account of the boy’s uncle, who responded to critics that came down harshly on the prank by explaining its origin thusly… and angrily:
“FOR YALL IGNORANT DUMB MFS TALKING SH*T ABOUT A 6SECOND VIDEO WE PRANKED MY LIL COUSON BECAUSE HE CAME UP TO HIS MOTHER AND TOLD HER HE HAD EBOLA SO SINCE HE THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY WE PRANKED HIM TO MAKE HIM THINK HE HAD EBOLA SO HE WOULD STOP PLAYING AROUND.”
You can watch a short clip of the prank below.
Do you think the family went too far with the prank? Or was it just what this kid needed to learn his lesson?
