WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Parents are being urged to monitor their children and teens’ use of TikTok and other social media platforms following reports of an extremely graphic video of the live-streamed suicide death of US Army veteran Ronnie McNutt, 33, who shot himself during a live-stream on Facebook.
User “trolls” have taken this footage and edited in thumbnails of puppies and kittens to trick social media viewers to click, which then shows a clip of the graphic video. Children and teens who have seen it report feeling traumatized. Others may be extremely distressed.

NewsGuard works with Big-Tech to make it harder for you to find certain content they feel is 'missing context' or stories their editors deem "not in your best interest" - regardless of whether they are true and/or factually accurate.
