Obviously some questions where the Sun is reporting the story, but it’s pretty disgusting.
This YouTuber has been doing live streams that repeatedly show him abusing his partner. It ended up with him eventually killing her through hypothermia after he dumped water on her and forced her outside in freezing conditions. He eventually let her back in the house but he failed to get her medical attention in time and she ended up dying.
Disturbing videos taken from Reeflay’s livestreams show his truly warped life, with clips appearing to reveal a horrific pattern of violence, alcohol, destruction and chaos. Reeflay, 30, appears to have pleased his YouTube fans by spending most of his time boozing with his girlfriend and pals on camera from his home near Moscow in Russia. Videos seen by The Sun Online show his campaign of violence and abuse, with even his friends hitting her on camera. Valentina’s friends describe his streams as being “full of cruelty”. She appears to have often been at the centre of his abuse, with perhaps the most cruel video showing him repeatedly pepper spraying her as she laid on the sofa. Valentina screams as Reeflay sits with two of his pals, only for him to then get up from his chair and spray her again as she gasps for her breath. The young woman is left writhing on the floor crying and wailing in pain as Reeflay sits emotionless in front of the camera sipping his drink.
Russian authorities have now launched an urgent investigation into his livestreams and her death.
Her shocking death has led to calls or an urgent ban on online “reality violence”, which appears unrestricted on YouTube and can be watched by children. Humiliation, sadism and misogyny appear to have been the common themes for Reeflay. His chilling final video featured him tearfully sitting in front of his camera as her frozen body lies behind him on the sofa. Russian police said he faces faces up to 15 years in jail if found guilty. Cops said they found Valentina had sustained serious injuries appearing to be from beatings before her death.
I guess this is the joys of unregulated broadcasting on the internet. We can let the market/corporations decide whether or not people feel like watching snuff films.
