Clearwater - A Florida woman was arrested for repeatedly slapping her 72-year-old grandmother in the face for refusing to accept her Facebook friend request according to authorities.
According to a Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office report, Rachel Anne Hayes, 27, faces felony charges of aggravated battery on an elderly person.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office told Orlando TV station WFTV an argument erupted over the Facebook friend request Thursday morning and led to Hayes repeatedly slapping her grandmother on the side of her face without permission.
Facebook requests? What is this 2009? Had to double and triple check the date on this story to make sure it wasn’t from half a decade ago. We’re talking about Facebook? Grow up lady. It’s almost 2015. I mean if Grandma has her Insta set to private and is taking 2 weeks to approve you that’s one thing, but let’s chill with the Facebook rage.
Totally on board with not accepting the friend request though, even though she’s family. ESPECIALLY if she’s family. Hey bitch maybe you just totally suck at Facebook? Sorry not everybody wants their timeline jammed up with your stupid posts? 100 pictures of your baby dressed up in cute outfits. Status updates for every place you go, thing you eat and thought you have during the day. All your hot takes on Ferguson and the NYPD. Your constant Share-ing of “He’s Not My President!” memes with 6 paragraph rants about your educated thoughts on politics in America. I mean that’s basically all Facebook is these days, timelines clogged with garbage. Got to do whatever you can to keep it relevant and the first step is not accepting friend requests from the worst offenders. Sorry Grandma’s not sorry Rachel.
