In a shocking development, a teen has stabbed his older brother to death, after an argument over the high score on popular mobile game Flappy Bird.
As per a report in the Huzlers, a 'Chicago teenager' was arrested for killing his brother, after the brother achieved a higher score on the popular game. The report said that "the teen was jealous of his brother and couldn't take the anger".
The authenticity of the report is yet to be verified, and it has to be duly noted that the Huzlers pride themselves in churning out a "combination of real shocking news and satire news to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief." Hence the report has to be taken with a pinch of salt.
Watch How To Get Highscore on Flappy Bird
According to the police, Gary Wright, 16, and his older brother, Jabari Wright, 17, were playing Flappy Bird. The older brother achieved a high score, and after several unsuccessful attempts by Gary to break the score, Jabari started to tease his younger brother.
The two then got into an argument, and in blind rage Gary stabbed his elder brother "17 times in the chest".
The report also has Gary telling his investigators the reason for stabbing his brother. "Anyone who has played that game would know why I did it."
Police officer Marco Grant told Huzlers: "It's a tragedy, he murdered his own brother because of a stupid game. I mean, I've played the game before, and it's hard as sh*t, f*** that game! I couldn't even pass 5," he added, "Why the f*** are you a bird if you can't f***ing fly straight, fake a** Super Mario piece of sh*t!"
Flappy Bird is a mobile game released in 2013. It has become a sensation in recent weeks, with the game becoming the number one free app on both iOS App Store and Google Play in several countries.
The news of Gary stabbing his brother comes at a time when Dong Ngugen, the developer of Flappy Bird, announced his plan to kill the game itself. In a tweet post on Saturday he said: "I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users, 22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down. I cannot take this anymore."
So will this be the end of Flappy Bird?
