A Guy in a Group About Pointing Loaded Guns at Your Own Junk Accidentally Shoots Himself in the Junk
There's Facebook groups for anything, from people who own the same specific car as you, to whatever hobby you're in, and even apparently a group set out to troll responsible gun owners by posting pictures of themselves pointing loaded guns at their junk.
Now, it wouldn't be obvious to anyone if someone in the group didn't load the gun before pointing it at their junk, and surely most of the people don't, but we know too many people take things as literally as they possibly could.
On August 11, one of 1,735 members of the group, "Loaded Guns Pointed at Benis", shared a video of himself holding a loaded 1911 at his junk. There was a brief pause, and then the gun discharged. The video has since been deleted.
Another thread from the same member started off with a photo of his legs and splattered blood over them and his carpet. A towel was also stuffed between his legs near his groin, with the caption "Hey [b]ois, I might have f***ed up."
He continued to post, saying "God’s caliber (.45) went through my scrotum, mattress, boxspring, and floor." He thought he might've grazed his sack, but the hospital visit showed a different result.
The group now hails him as a hero, calling him their king. An admin for the group told Motherboard, "[He] is 100% okay, actually went to work the next day," which I can't blame him for, I'd rather not have to explain that to the boss.
"The reason we are calling him king is partially because the poor guy already shot himself, don’t think he needs to be chastised as well... I’m quite sure he’s learned his lesson without the entire world calling him an idiot," the admin said.
"Loaded Guns Pointed at Benis" has made the man an admin, and the group has shared memes since the incident. In one, he is being given the medal of honor by Barack Obama.
