Two teenagers at the supermarket drink bottles of fruit juice and put them back on the shelf to "spread the virus" to other people: both were arrested
Sometimes people have no limits when it comes to how inconsiderate they can be. And their inconsideration only seems to get worse the bigger the Coronavirus pandemic becomes. Despite the panic brought on by the Covid-19 outbreak, there are still those who refuse to pass up the opportunity to play off of people's fears.
Although the two 17-year-olds in our story will tell you they were just joking around, their shenanigans ended up getting them arrested.
With governments across the world imploring people to wash their hands often and practice social distancing, these two 17-year-olds from Singapore couldn't resist pulling a practical joke on shoppers at a local supermarket. While no one was looking, they opened and drank from several bottles of fruit juice and then sat them back on the shelves.
In their instagram video, they said their reason for pulling the prank was because they "wanted to spread the Wuhan virus." The video was shared on their instagrams at the beginning of February, when the virus had just reached its peak in China.
It didn't take long for someone to report the video to the authorities. Once the two teenagers were located, they were immediately arrested and interrogated. The two tried to justify their actions with the excuse that they were just trying to have some fun. "Fun," to say the least, is not the word any of us would use to describe what these two did. Their actions were irresponsible and also insensitive to those who have been affected personally by the virus.
