Talk about tough love!

A North Carolina dad's video lecturing his daughter for being spoiled — and then shooting her laptop full of bullets — received more than 1.8 million hits on YouTube.

His anger, according to the video, came after his 15-year-old posted on Facebook complaining about the chores she had to do every day.

“Hannah, you were grounded for about three months for doing something very similar to this, and I would have thought with a father that works in IT for a living, you would have better sense then to do it again. . . .” a man identified as Tommy Jordan said.

Apparently, she didn’t.

After a four-minute long rant detailing “the most disappointing day” of life as a father, Jordan tells his daughter that things are about to get “much harder.” He then pulls out a handgun and asserts, “This right here is my .45,” and proceeds to fire nine bullets into his daughter’s laptop in the YouTube video that reached over 1.8 million views in just two days.

Since the video was posted, his Facebook page has become a continuous stream of updates detailing his daughter’s emotional state, his defense against criticism, and even a meek attempt at charity.

“How about we leverage all the newfound 15 minutes of fame for a good cause?” said Jordan in his Facebook post earlier today that links to the Muscular Dystrophy Association “Can a few of you 40-ba-jillion people help raise awareness and donate to a good cause?”

The newfound YouTube star has expressed some remorse in response to the “unwanted” fame.

“I’ll agree that wasn’t a good example of me as a father. I had been reading that post again and again for about an hour, sometimes in tears, other times so mad my hands were shaking and I was trying very hard to be civil in my message. I slipped in that and said a word I shouldn’t have. I deserve a little backlash for that, no doubt,” said Jordan in another Facebook post.

Besides being embarrassed, Hannah is doing just fine, he said.

He said he even offered her a chance to make a reply video — which she declined.

“It's only fair, considering the viral nature of the whole thing. So far, she’s not really interested,” he wrote. “Quite frankly, it seems she’s gotten bored of it much faster than the general public has. If that changes, I’ll post it here.”

Way to go Dad!

This has been on the news all day today..and people are agreeing with the father. Sometimes you get feed up with the disrespect your kids give you (not mine) and he hit his breaking point.

good riddance to bad rubbish. facebook is going a long way in ensuring the lives of youths are wrecked. no one studies any longer, only facebooking.
while some people chat their lives away on facebook, zuckerberg keeps smiling to the bank
