Today is Gabby Petito’s 23 birthday that she does not get to celebrate with her family, knowing that this “trend” is becoming more widespread is absolutely sickening and needs to be reported to proper authorities 😡😤

Tiktok trend shows men fantasising about the ways to murder women
A spate of distressing TikTok videos have circulated depicting young men describing the ways they could kill women, and ending their videos with ‘and you f**king die’.
The videos begin with the word ‘imagine’, and then go on to describe a date, followed by a horrific act of assault, then end with the death of the victim.
Compiled mostly by men —some with hundreds of thousands of followers— the videos show the creators smiling or posing in front of the camera, accompanied by a song with the text of the disturbing one-line descriptions on the screen.
