CATS ALWAYS KNOW WHAT’S UP
The incident took place on Tuesday in San Diego, California, landing the man in the hospital.
As first reported by Vice, the man who has not been named, is reportedly a member of the Facebook group, which was created in May as a forum for gun owners to show their prowess with firearms by pointing loaded guns with the safety off at their genitals.
The man who shot himself posted a video showing off his .45 caliber M1911 pistol, then pressed the muzzle down on his scrotum. A few seconds later the gun fired.
The wounded man documented what happened next in a series of posts, writing, “Hey [b]ois, I might have f***ed up.”
Attached to the comment was a photo posted by the man showing his exposed legs with a towel pressed in between them and drops of blood on the floor.
“I’m not kidding. I just shot myself,” the man said. “God’s caliber went through my scrotum, mattress, boxspring and floor.”
The outlet reported, that the man initially thought the bullet had just grazed his body, but a trip to the hospital confirmed that the round had gone straight through his scrotum, leaving an entry and exit wound.
He reportedly shared a photo of himself laying on a gurney wearing a hospital gown and pointing his finger at his scrotum in a gesture mimicking a gun.
An admin for the Facebook group told Motherboard that the victim was “100% okay” and even went to work the following day.
In the wake of the incident, other member of the Facebook group elevated the man to the status of an admin and celebrated him as “king.”
“The reason we are calling him king is partially because the poor guy already shot himself, don’t think he needs to be chastised as well,” the other admin told VICE.
“I’m quite sure he’s learned his lesson without the entire world calling him an idiot.”
