“Joker” movie inspires suicide.
Blog King, Mass Appeal
MOSCOW — In a stomach-churning development, 18-year-old Gleb Korabljov took his own life just hours after descrying the “Joker” movie and he live-streamed the impermanence for the entire world to see. The sanguinary ordeal went down last weekend in Russia. Uncut video footage shows Gleb making a reference to the ultimate scene in the controversial film where the Joker was supposed to commit suicide on live television. After he goes into a discursive tirade, Gleb pressed the barrel of a shotgun against his cranium and pulled the trigger. It’s the most horrific thing ever recorded.
Despite annihilating box office records, the Joker has garnered massive opprobrium for being “too terrifying.” One Twitter user wrote: “I walked out of this movie #Joker BAN THIS MOVIE!! It’s a psychological approach on the mind! I was rooting for him until shit got real… Oh man…”
Another user added, “Literally just walked out of a screening of Joker. Way too terrifying to be there with all this going on the way the movie glamorizes gun violence and mental health issues.”
