YouTuber Shot at Mall After Prank Goes Wrong

Recently, a disturbing incident occurred at a mall in Virginia where a YouTube prankster was shot in the stomach after playing what he believed to be a harmless practical joke on a man. Pranks have been a popular form of entertainment for generations, with many people finding joy in seeing others react to unexpected situations. However, the rise of social media has taken the world of pranking to new heights, with YouTube channels dedicated solely to this type of content.


Unfortunately, as recent events have shown, pranks can sometimes go wrong, with potentially fatal consequences. A recent example involved a 35-year-old mother of infant twins who suffers from epilepsy due to cancer. While shopping, a group of teenage boys put a bucket over her head as a prank, causing her to panic and triggering an epileptic event that led to her losing consciousness and being hospitalized.

In a recent incident involving a YouTuber named Tanner Cook, a member of the YouTube prank group Classified Goons with around 40,000 subscribers, was playing a practical joke on a man at the mall while a friend recorded him. However, things took a turn for the worse when the man, identified as Alan Colie, reportedly pulled out a gun and shot Cook in the stomach, leaving him in critical condition. Cook’s version of events suggests that he was playing a “simple joke,” but the man did not take it well.

According to Tanner Cook’s father, the prank involved Google Translate, and Cook was asking the man some questions with his phone in his face, which the man found intrusive. The suspect, Alan Colie, was arrested soon after the incident and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Cook has said that he intends to keep making YouTube prank videos despite the incident.

The incident serves as a stark reminder that pranks can have serious consequences. What may seem like harmless fun to one person can be perceived as threatening or offensive to another. It’s important to remember that not everyone has the same sense of humor, and what one person finds funny may be deeply upsetting to another.
