What in the actual fuck?!
Next year's recipient of the Warrior Award?
I feel bad for laughing at this.
Scary thing is that every time something like this gets reported, the perp is older.
If I remember right there was some teenager who did the same thing back in 2013. And now a 20 year old.
Ouch.. can't help but feel bad for the girlfriend.
Was it not some brother who did it to his younger sister or something along those lines?
Yeah, that sounds about right
Disgusting. I hope they fist his asshole in jail.
I like the commercials that say "don't try this at home or school.". But they never say anything about the workplace
It's sort of a cruel irony that a move belonging to The Undertaker called the 'Last Ride' is what killed the child...
but that's not irony at all.
Considering he didn't intend on using it to actually kill the child, it is.
It's not irony that killed this child. It's stupidity.
"I'm a full grown man but let's give an 18 month old an elevated powerbomb, what could go wrong!? Wrestling is fake!"
I said the situation as a whole was somewhat ironic, not that irony was some magical force that possessed a grown man to use wrestling moves on an 18-month old kid.
This is a horrible tragerty and I feel bad for the mother of the child. However, I have to be honest in saying that I've done tons of wrestling moves, on a bed or soft surface, to my nephews and nieces. More or less, just "play fighting" with them. Sure, I didn't go as far as to hit a last ride powerbomb, which was dumb of the guy to do, but I've done some mini slams holding them up and slamming them on the bed.
The point is that the guy shouldn't have been doing this and clearly he's an idiot. But, I don't think we need to make it seem like he's worthless and meant to kill the kid just because he did one wrong move that he shouldn't have done. An idiot? Yes, absolutely. A murderer? Technically. yes.
If the guy had record of previously abusing the child and having no regard for him, then yeah, I can see this situation being viewed as nothing but murder.
Either way, not trying to side with the guy at all as he's a Moron.... But just putting things into perspective.
The situation is not ironic. Ironic would be if the move was called "Life giver" and it killed the child. To die in the living room is ironic. Just google a definition : "happening in the opposite way to what is expected, and typically causing wry amusement because of this." Last ride & death go together. Not irony.
Rain on the wedding day (ala Alanis Morissett) is not ironic, just unforutnate. Rain on a day that is called "festival of the sun" - ironic. Although it IS ironic that nothing in that stupid song about irony is ironic.
"Happening in the opposite way to what is expected, and typically causing wry amusement because of this"
Kind of my whole point. It's a wrestling move that isn't actually intended to be your literal last ride/death (and as incredibly stupid as it was for this guy to use it on a child that young and small, he didn't actually do it with any intent to harm although he may as well have), but it ended up being just that anyway. Likewise, if the Undertaker had accidentally killed someone in the ring with the Tombstone Piledriver or Last Ride in the ring, that would be pretty ironic.
Someone gets it. Hooray!
that fucking Morissett song lol. I always wondered if she is just retarded or if she was on some next level shit making fun of people who don't know what irony is.
Nope. You said it was ironic based on the name of the move, which it wasn't at all.
Nitpick all you want, anyone with half a brain understand completely what I meant.
