Video of US dad who fired his gun at daughter's laptop over her Facebook complaint post goes viral
WASHINGTON (AFP) - A video of an angry American father pumping nine slugs from a handgun into his daughter's laptop has gone viral on YouTube and sparked an impassioned online debate over his parenting skills. Mr Tommy Jordan, of North Carolina, explains in the video, which he titled 'Facebook Parenting: for the troubled teen', that he was upset by a Facebook post by his 15-year-old daughter in which she complained about her parents. 'This is for my daughter, Hannah, and more importantly for all her friends on Facebook who thought her little rebellious post was cute,' Mr Jordan says, speaking into a video camera apparently set up on a tripod. Wearing a cowboy hat and smoking a cigarette, the video opens with Mr Jordan sitting in a chair and reading with unconcealed outrage from the Facebook post, in which his daughter complains about having to do chores around the house.
