YouTuber, joke gone wrong: they shoot him and kill him
Timothy Wilks, a 20-year-old youtuber from Nashville, Tennessee, tried to set up a joke, faking a robbery with a real butcher knife. Unfortunately for him it ended really badly in the sense that they shot him, killing him.

Wilks' goal was of course to create shocking content for his YouTube channel. Ours, along with a friend of him, approached a group of people in the parking lot of Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park, gun in hand. Unfortunately for him, 23-year-old David Starnes Jr. was among the victims of the joke, who pulled out his weapon and shot him, killing him.

Under the laws of Tennessee, Starnes had every right to carry a firearm and use it in self-defense. So it's certain he won't be indicted for Wilks' murder, as he couldn't have known he was just playing a joke to post it on YouTube.

The underlying problem of these stories remains: the increasingly obsessive search of many youtubers of extreme contents, designed to involve their audience, obviously more and more bored. One would say that you do it because you don't have much to say, but as always it's also worth wondering why so many are attracted to these videos.
