Jeff Flake's Son Pretends to Commit Suicide in YouTube Video

Senator Jeff Flake's 15-year-old son Tanner is more inept at using the Internet than we thought he was five minutes ago.

Soon after we revealed that Flake's son calls himself "N1ggerKiller" in an iPhone game, and casually refers to people as "faggots" and "Jews" on his Twitter account, we were sent this video, of Flake's son pretending to commit suicide in a YouTube video.

Check out the video below, which we have re-uploaded, after Tanner set it to "private" :



"13 year old child was found dead in home," the video description says. "This video was found on the computer and leaked to the internet. lol why would somebody want to see something like this anyways? people are weird."

The video was uploaded to Tanner Flake's YouTube account in 2011, when he was 13 years old.

You can see from the comments Tanner has left on YouTube videos that he appears to have a penchant for calling people "faggot."

Seriously. If Sen. Flake does not put Tanner in counseling or therapy, he should be considered guilty of child abuse. This kid has serious problems. Even if in jest, the fake suicide attempt is a cry for attention. Or help.  

wtf...

What gets me is that when Flake ran for the senate--- unlike most politicians with a brain he failed to get aides to go through his kid's social media to find these things.  He's an idiot and his son is  disturbed.  I know kids do things like this but the telling bit is Flake and his wife are not paying attention.  A whole lot of attention is needed with this kid.  I'd say its time for the professionals.

This kid is going to end up like Russell Pearce's kid if the Flake parents don't get on top of this now.

Maybe daddy should have concentrated more on raising Jr. than politics.

Well this young man needs help, like two years ago. But then again this is Arizona, he's white, and a Senator's son, so boys will be boys. does kinda make you wonder how he is being raised though, maybe he should attend his church more, talk to his minister!

NOW WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS YOUNG MAN?  SOUNDS LIKE HE NEEDS A GOOD BUTT WHOOPIN'.  SPARE THE ROD AND  SPOIL THE CHILD!!!!  AND I WOULD EXPECT MORE DISCIPLING OUT OF SENATOR FLAKE TO HIS OWN CHILD.  THIS EARTH IS HEADED TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET REAL QUICK WITH LITTLE BRAT CHILDREN LIKE THAT RUNNIN' AROUND.  WHOOP HIS BUTT AND THEN HAVE HIM APOLOGIZE TO HIS CLASSMATES AND FACEBOOK AND TWEETER.

Sen. Flake, your son is a very disturbed individual. You need to have him committed so he can receive the psychiatric care he so desperately needs. Beyond that, you need to show some leadership by bringing the universal background checks bill back to life. Then you need to lead a movement to improve the care of persons with mental illnesses. If you don't, you are beyond hope and your political career is over.

As much as we all know that Jeff Flake is a less than satisfactory human-being and congressman, "journalists" shouldn't be bullying his kid. The kid had no choice as to who his father is, and probably is just as embarrassed as we feel he should be about Mr. Flake. Maybe the New Times could be take some resources off of the sales staff, and commit it back to real, honest hard-hitting journalism.

@lancecoach LMAO most likely his mental problems come from being in a traditional christian family, eh?

@lancecoach relax, the kid is just dumb.  The media should not have even pursued this story or any similar story with young kids.

@Flyer9753  Can't help but notice it has been two years since the kid made this video to his bigoted twitters and Mr Flake has been focused on what the last two years?

@Suzie Johnston Zumbo The kid posted this on youtube, he knew what he was doing.  When will young people learn that what they post can go viral?  This kid needs counseling.

@Suzie Johnston Zumbo   Actually it is news since Mr Flake or his office, can't recall which, was on TV today talking about it.

@Brad Wayne Maybe the son should learn some human decency. He is behaving like a bigot and that sort of behavior is unacceptable. A lot of people use the internet to spew hate but they are cowards and remain anonymous. This creature proudly claims that he is the son of a senator and has the audacity to call people the scum of the Earth. I do not have sympathy for people who have had plenty of access to education, food and shelter. I am glad he is embarrassed. I don't think reporters should tease him, but they definitely should report the news.

@logicman @lancecoach If this kid posted this crap on youtube, he can learn the hard lesson that it opens him up to the public, press, etc.  Too many kids do not realize the effects of what they post on-line.  It should not be used for political gain by an opposing party, but to get this kid into therapy and wake up these parents!  If not, look to see his name in the headlines very soon for some serious crime.

@dogbiter again, calling someone an idiot and hater while being an idiot and hating.

@WhoKnows @eric.nelson745 Didya notice him staring at his webcam? I tell you his facial expression was nothing short of sardonic. As if he was by a demon possessed.
