On Saturday Kasper Knight, posted a video of the stunt where he “shot himself in the face “on his Facebook page via live video, the clip has so far been viewed by million’s.
Knight revealed that he wanted to put the stunt in a music video but no cameraman was willing to film him shooting himself – “so I did it myself since I felt like taking a bullet to the face”, he said.
He goes on to say “it was really nothing as I’ve been shot a couple of times before and this was like a four out of 10 on the pain scale after the initial impact. The last time that a bullet ricocheted through me it destroyed an organ and part of another.”
“I should’ve used a different gun,” He wrote. “My Friend discouraged me from using the .9mm because he said it was armor piercing. Armor piercing: I wonder what that’d look like going through my arms/do you ?”
The clip has so far been viewed more than 1.7 million times – but most of those who watched it blasted Knight for his stupidity.
One viewer wrote: “Why the hell would you WANT to shoot yourself in the damn face?!” while another said: “Why do idiots like this exist on the Internet?”
