Reddit User Confessed To Murder With 'Confession Bear' Meme
A person using Reddit to express his thoughts has apparently done so in order to confess to an alleged homicide. By using the common image macro meme known as the "Confession Bear," the Redditor claimed he murdered his sister's "abusive boyfriend."
People normally use the Confession Bear to bare their souls about smelly feet or hogging the last bag of chips. But, apparently Reddit user "Naratto" decided to confess something far more heinous late on the night of Saturday, April 6.
"My sister had an abusive meth addict boyfriend," the Confession Bear reads, as posted by the Daily Dot. "I killed him with his own drugs while he was unconscious and they ruled it as an overdose."
The original Reddit thread from Naratto was titled "Finally have the guts to say it," and was later deleted. Numerous comments remain from other Reddit users, some who seem to be mocking the Confession Bear meme, others who are taking it more seriously.
"Was the thread-starter aiming for karma? Or had he just made the second-biggest mistake of his life?" the Daily Dot asks.
According to the Daily Dot, within moments of the Reddit posting, commenters revealed "'everything from name, DOB, jobs, location, FB, Twitter, Myspace, the whole deal,' and debate began over whether his confession was serious enough to warrant reporting to authorities." Those comments have now been deleted, but it's possible Redditors tipped the FBI to this information about Naratto and his alleged crime.
It was after this revelation about his personal information that Naratto came back on Reddit to claim the whole confession was a joke ... in part.
"I posted it wondering what would happen," Naratto said in a comment that was later deleted. The comment continues, though, in a manner that makes the whole thing even more confusing as to what was real in the confession and what was not.
"[t]here is SOME truth behind it but I'm not saying what was true and what wasn't. If I had a dollar for every time someone took me to [sic] seriously on the internet, I would be able to retire from today alone."
"I'm sorry to anyone that I've offended to the point of ruining their lives. To everyone else, get f**ked."
According to the Daily Dot, this would be the first time a Redditor confessed to a murder before immediately regretting it.
