Facebook vigilantes beat California homeless man because of hoax

Here is just one more reason why you shouldn’t believe everything that’s posted on Facebook.

A group of Facebook vigilantes in Modesto, California, beat a homeless man after someone posted the following to Facebook.

Guess what kids. It was a hoax.

Modesto police even contacted the person who allegedly first posted it…

“She was a friend of a friend of a friend who posted this information on Facebook,” police spokeswoman Heather Graves explained.

Was this friend of a friend of a friend also attacked after not flashing her high beams or pricked by a syringe full of AIDS?

Luckily the man wasn’t seriously injured and did not press charges against his attackers.

I don’t even know what to add at this point because it’s not like anyone is going to leave Facebook or stop spreading any bullshit that someone posts but if you have one of those kind of Facebook friends you may want to show them this post.
