A Baton Rouge girl has become the latest TikTok star – after she livestreamed herself past a deadly shooting – eating candy and relaxing as if nothing major was happening, MTO News learned.
The Louisiana girl posted the video on the social media site and quickly garnered millions of views and 10,000 likes, MTO confirmed.
In the video, which has since gone viral, the girl is seen walking while gunshots are heard in the background. Surprisingly, the young woman didn’t seem afraid of bullets. Luckily, she wasn’t affected by any of them either.
Instead, the girl is seen laughing and eating candy, MTO News noted.
The girl – who is now considered a TikTok star given the popularity of the video – laughs as she says “They’re stupid” – referring to the gummy bears.
According to local reports, the shooting left at least 3 people injured, with one person not surviving.
Murders have skyrocketed in the Louisiana capital since 2020, while the kill elimination rate has dropped.
This trend is reflected across the country, but is most pronounced in East Baton Rouge.
The parish this week recorded its 119th murder of 2021, surpassing the record set last year. With more than 100 vacancies in the ranks of sworn officers, the Baton Rouge Police Department, which responds to the vast majority of non-fatal murders and shootings, is thinner than ever.
