YouTube is a great source of entertainment for millions of people all over the world.
However, it became a disturbance source when a YouTuber killed his pregnant girlfriend during a live stream.
The Russian YouTuber Stanislav Reshetnikov, better known as Stas Reeflay, was encouraged by his viewers. They even paid him $1,000 to be abusive towards his girlfriend in his home in Ivanovka village.
It is alleged that Stas forced Valentina Grigoryeva outside on a balcony in ice-cold weather. She was wearing nothing but her underwear.
She was in the early stages of her pregnancy.
As she lay dying from hypothermia, the 30-year-old continued to record the live stream, capturing her last moments on video.
Not The First Incident Reports indicate that this was not the first time Stas was abusive towards Valentina, 28, during online broadcasts.
Stas makes money from donations that his viewers send him, and in a former live recording, he was seen spraying her with pepper spray.
A friend of hers said his live streams were full of cruel behavior towards her.
Call For Action The disturbing and shocking incident has led to people calling for an urgent ban on online ‘reality violence’ in Russia.
It seems that this kind of content can be watched freely by anyone, including children.
Most upsettingly, Stas kept recording even after realizing that his girlfriend was dying.
The footage, which is distressing to see, shows Stas carrying Valentina inside and trying to revive her.
He could be heard talking to her.
“Valya, are you alive? My bunny, what’s up with you? Valya, Valya, damn, you look like you are dead. Bunny, come on… tell me something. I’m worrying. Damn… I do not feel her heartbeat.”
Stas then talked to his viewers.
“Guys… No pulse… She’s pale. She is not breathing.”
The camera kept rolling even after he called an ambulance.
Valentina had only recently shared her happy news that she was expecting a baby.
Things Didn’t Stop There The livestream continued and was watched by thousands as paramedics arrived and declared the young woman dead.
During this time, Stas could be heard declaring his love for Valentina.
“Wake up, Valya, I love you, wake up.”
If reports are to be believed, the broadcast continued for another two hours after the horrific death.
Stas was held by police who were at the scene, and he was interrogated during the recording.
Should he be found responsible for Valentina’s death due to hypothermia, the YouTuber will face up to two years in prison.
The Russian Investigative Committee will look into any unlawful actions by Stas.
Liza Lazerson, a feminist activist, has spoken out against YouTube. She is upset that the streaming site would ban naked breasts but do nothing about displaying violence and cruelty against women.
“The woman dies on-air – and the audience sends donations to the killer. This must stop.”
“Such videos are calmly broadcast to the whole world, meaning something is broken. Until this is fixed, censorship is necessary.”
Many feel that this kind of content is causing harm to younger viewers.
