Slap Cam

Janell Burley Hofmann, September 30, 2013

A new trend started on Vine and now viral on many other video sharing sites is called “Slap Cam”. Yep — slapping someone unexpectedly in the face while someone catches it on video, then shares it. I hate this. It bothers me deeply. I heard a few of my son’s buddies talking about doing it to each other during a recent sleepover. They slapped a sleeping friend in the face and then shared the video. Nothing good can come from this trend. Talk to your kids about it, have a zero tolerance policy for it in your house. It’s violent, embarrassing, and just cruel.
