By now you may have seen a viral video making its rounds on social media of a home that was pretty much destroyed allegedly by a young man upset with his family.
The captions on the video indicated that the child was 12 and he destroyed the home over the loss of a cell phone. (All of which is not true)

Now, mom is speaking out and clearing up the rumors.
In her video, she said her son is mentally ill, 15 yrs old, and over 200 pounds. She said responded to comments that call for the child to be physically disciplined saying, she cannot ‘spank’ him and saying he did not do what he did because of a cell phone.
She said it sucks that the video was put out.

Mom’s best freind created a GFM to help with damages and gave more incite into what happend.
Hi, my name is Anny. I am creating this gofund for my best friend who is in desperate need of assistance. 5 years ago she moved to Florida and lost everything she owned in the moving truck. She then became homeless with her two kids since the family she stayed with could not handle her son’s mental issues (he has been refusing to take his medication for some time causing him to be unstable). Since then she was able to get a stable home and attain all that was lost. She was so proud and grateful with God of how far she has come.
This past Friday was one if not the worst day of her life as she watched her son loose control and destroy everything she owned and worked so hard for. She had no strenght to stop him as she just under went surgery a little over a week ago.
If destroying her home was not enough he also physically attacked her while his sister was locked in a room. All she could do was yell out for help.
He destroyed anything that was breakable windows, dishes, tvs, tablets, refrigerator, work equipments, even the counter and toilet was broken. The damage to her personal belongings could be replaced over time but the damage and destruction to the apartment will be the most to repair and replace. This is why I’m reaching out.
P.S. Please don’t think that any amount of money is too small. If you can’t help monetarily pls keep her and her family in your prayers.
I included some pics so you can see the gravity of the damage but the site does not let me upload the full photo.
The mom whose 12 year-old son destroyed the home over his phone made a video and it breaks my heart. She’s really struggling emotionally to take care of him (he’s larger than her and lives with MH issues) and she sent the video to someone she thought she could trust

It wasn’t a 12 year old boy who did this.
His mother posted a video – it was done by her 270 pound, 15 year old son who’s mentally ill.

We are praying for mom and her family, it just goes to show that you never know what people are going through.
