The Same Guy Has Been Killed in a Bunch of Terrorist Attacks

And I think why not me? But anyway, this one guy has shown up on the lists of victims more than six separate times. Gizmodo reports:

This same guy has been identified through social media as a terror victim in the wake of several recent incidents, including the EgyptAir crash last month, the shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, and the deadly attack at the Turkish airport. He’s also been connected to other sorts of tragedies, including an incident in Mexico when police shot at a crowd of people protesting education reform.

And if you’re wondering how is this possible? Don’t reporters check their sources? I’m here to tell you ‘no.’ Citizen journals are a sign of the times. The Internet does the heavy lifting and I just write about it. The use of this man’s photo has all been thanks to one Internet prank turned trend. France24 did some investigating. And they found out that people are mad at this man for scamming them out of some money. This is their revenge. One user told France24:

Our goal is to ruin his reputation. We want the whole world to recognize his face.

And it’s really worked. The man, however slimy, is still living but constantly showing up as a terrorist victim even still while involved in a number of lawsuits. He claims he tried to contact a number of news sites to remove his image, but I think we’re just going to have to get used to the world’s most killed man.

His name is unknown, but his face will live on.
