'Southern Momma’ Takes Shotgun to Kids' Cellphones in Protest of Social Media

This "Southern Momma" is taking parenting to the extreme. In an attempt to show her children what she really thinks of their disrespect and their involvement on social media, she decides to shoot their cellphones while they stand and watch.

The YouTube poster captions the video, "This is what happens when you disrespect and cuss your mom in the South."

Southern Momma makes her children put their cellphones on a stump before blasting away them with a shotgun, explaining, "I hereby denounce the effects that social media have on my children."

Once the phones have been blown to smithereens, she asks for whatever remains to be put back on the stump. She then decides to take a sledge hammer and smash the remaining pieces.

Southern momma proclaims in dramatic fashion, "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 in school for having phones out."

I think her kids get the point. Well, at least two of them.

Warning: There are some expletives thrown around by one kid who is exceptionally angry about the situation.


Watch part II where she blows up their beds because they sleep all day long.
