We don't think this is what Mark Zuckerberg had in mind when he created his online empire.
The monster has taken over the
A woman in Des Moines found her house in flames this week after she defriended someone on Facebook. Jennifer Christine Harris and her husband were fast asleep when Nikki Rasmussen set fire to their garage and booked it. The fire caused a loud booming sound that thankfully woke the pair, who managed to escape as the siding on their house began to melt from the heat of the fire in the detached garage!
And we're not kidding! This all happened because of Facebook.
Jennifer's husband Jim told the police that the two women were ensnared in a petty, catty battle via the website and just recently, Jen defriended Nikki so that the fight would end. Police Detective Jack Kamerick then relayed the story to the press, explaining:
“Things were posted on Facebook. Jen asked Nikki to create an event on Facebook for a party. Nikki did that. As the date for the party approached “there were a lot of ‘declines,’ on Facebook, the detective said. It was looking like the party might be a bust. The dispute apparently blossomed. So when the garage went up in flames, Harris became the first name that occurred to the victims."
Totally cray cray!
Oh, the horror each of them are going to feel when they revisit their pages in years to come!!!
Let this be a lesson learned to all of you who are planning to end a friendship on Facebook…
There will be consequences!
