Watch: Louisiana Dad Whips His Daughter 50 Times With A Belt & Shaves Her Head As Punishment For Using Snapchat

Evil people are just ruining social media. 

Louisiana-based Alex J. Harrison is now locked behind bars, after he “allegedly” beat up a young girl with a belt and shaved her hair off….after she dared to download Snapchat on her cellphone?

Um.

According to the Daily Mail, a harrowing video surfaced online; it shows the 30-year-old lashing a teenage girl (his daughter, according to Harrison) with a belt, before shaving off all of her hair. 

Horrific. Ugh. 



Harrison apparently became upset at the child for using the social media app. In the clip, which he shared on Facebook and Snapchat, he can be heard telling her that “school is for work” and not for Snapchatting, before declaring that she has no business posting snaps anyway. 

Oh, the irony.

Then, he goes on to insult her hygiene, even claiming that she didn’t even know how to change a tampon. Oh boy.

The footage showed Harrison striking the girl with a belt at least 50 times; he beating lasted for about a minute and a half. The girl was then forced to look straight at the camera while Harrison continued to scold her. Another man can be heard laughing and encouraging Alex Harrison to beat the child.

The victim was later identified as a 9th grade student; she is presumably around 14 or 15 years old. The Ferriday Police Department arrested Harrison on charges of child cruelty, but authorities refused to comment on whether the girl was still staying at their home or if she has been transferred to child care.



Metro shared that investigator Bo Stevens stated that he is certain the child suffered from abuse. He further commented that there is a proper way to discipline children and…this wasn’t it.

Warning: Footage below contains graphic content.


In a NOT shocking twist—this type of story almost always has a line like this; sad but true—it is not the perpetrator’s first offense. He was arrested in May 2015 for violating a protective order and earlier this year for driving under suspension.



Poor girl. Really hope that this is addressed and that she is actually put into a situation where her safety and well-being is prioritized.
