When it comes to pop culture, there seems to be a huge sensation when it comes to viral “challenges”. When one of these challenges goes viral, the whole world tends to follow suit. This can lead to tons of fun and entertaining videos following the trends, however, sometimes it can go terribly wrong. This is a situation where the “mannequin challenge” has gone terrible for those involved.

On November 9th, 2016, Huntsville Alabama residents decided to get in on the trend with their own mannequin challenge video. Instead of posing in hilarious and creative ways, the group decided to pose with firearms. The video, which currently has over 3 million views on Facebook, quickly went viral.

Unfortunately, this also gained the attention of local law enforcement, with the Madison County Sheriff's investigators to obtain a search warrant. 


At 5:02 in the morning on Dec. 6, a raid took place at the residence of the video, resulting in multiple arrests. Those arrested included Kenneth Fennell White, 49, and Terry Brown, 23. White has been charged with possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm by a violent felon, while Brown has possession of drug paraphernalia and loitering.

During the raid, two handguns, an assault rifle, and a shotgun were found at the residence. While nowhere near the count of nearly 20 guns seen in the original video, it is still enough evidence to make the charges.

So is this the end of the mannequin challenge? If not, will this story be enough to finally let people know that no matter how “cool” a social media trend is, or how popular you want to be, putting your illegal acts online is NEVER a good idea?

Whether or not this is the last time we see another crazy challenge gone wrong for those trying to seek their “5 minutes of fame”, this will certainly be remember as a case of “keeping it real” going wrong!
