12-year-old boy's head shaved for being 'gay' in shocking video, three family members charged

A shocking video made rounds on the Internet on Thursday, June 18, leaving social media rattled by the harrowing abuse of a preteen because of his sexuality. Identified as Tyler, the 12-year-old boy from Atlanta, Georgia, can be seen getting abused and beaten by at least four people towering over him while another person films the Instagram live. Tyler is seen on camera wearing a red shirt, with his arms crossed across his chest in an alert stance, flinching every time the man next to him moves his arm. The reason behind Tyler's fear is soon outed as verbal abuse leads to slaps and aggravated hitting from the man next to the young boy.

On July 16, following a month-long investigation by the Atlanta Police Department's Special Victims Unit, three members of the family were arrested and charged with child abuse. They have been identified as Lorkeyla Spencer, 19; Brittney Mills, 35, and Jordan Richards-Nwankwo.

The boy has also been removed from his family's home by the Georgia Division of Family and Children.

ďThe behavior in this social media post was difficult to watch and is absolutely unacceptable,Ē the Atlanta Police Department said in a statement.

An update on the story from a month ago. Glad to see that his abusive family members have been arrested.

8. Social media has turned people into freaking animals.

It's just a contest to see who can get the most likes by doing stupid and/or horrible things. Before Facebook and Instagram came along, I never realized just how many truly awful people walk among us.

12. Sigh

It's satanic enough they did it.

But to be so proud about it that you're tossing it on social media? So, no humanity at all then, eh?

At least they get to rot for a little while. People aren't fond of child abusers.
