GTA 5 Walmart Family Fight for Last Game (Video)

WARNING: This Video Contains Scenes of Violence

GTA 5 Walmart fight for last copy of the game

While the debate continues about whether or not playing violent video games causes the players to be more violent in real life, it looks as though just purchasing a copy of GTA 5 can lead to violence. In a video posted on YouTube, a man and his son, in fact their whole family, fight for the last copy of the game in Walmart. We have included the video clip below.

The footage has been shot via Instagram and has not shown up on many websites. Apparently the fight began as two different people attempted to grab the game to purchase it.

Looking at the video it appears to be two families who are involved in the scuffle. The older man, who seems to the the father of one of the two groups, tells a young black man to calm down or he will “knock his a** out.” He also says that no one talks to his son like that.

He then asks the other young man if he is “high or something.” The shouting escalates into a battle between the older man and the younger one. As the “father” grapples with the male teen, other people become involved in that fracas and at one point there are four people trading blows and wrestling with each other.

A woman can be heard shouting for someone to call 911 while the scuffle continues. It sounds as though it could be the person recording the fight on their cell phone. As the father gets knocked to the ground, another teen circles around the group saying “Really?” The recording of the GTA 5 Walmart family fight for the last copy of the game, shows these consumers at their worst behaviour. It also proves just how far one family will go to buy the latest version of the game.

The circling teenager then punches the black youth in the face as a female attempts to pull the punched man away from the “father” on the ground. The teen who punched the black youngster throws him into a shelving unit and when he falls to the ground the black ball cap-wearing youth begins to kick the other teen.

The two teenagers are finally pulled apart and as the black teen attempts to sort his clothing out, the first family start to leave the Walmart store. As the young black man and another female go to exit the store, the fight breaks out again in the entrance of the building.

As the black teenager walks into the entrance, the father and another teen, a different youngster from the lad who punched the black youth in the face, corner the teen against a vending machine. A woman starts screaming for them to stop and out of the crowd of people approximately half of them seem to be trying to break the fight up or to join in.

The fighting moves across the entrance until the two remaining fighters crash into a stack of trolleys in the entrance. Another man comes out and tells the white teenager to let go of the other youngster and to get out of the store.

Unfortunately, there is no information as to where this particular Walmart is. But one thing’s for certain. With the already existent violence in these two families, which caused them to fight over the last GTA 5 game in the store, they may not be overly influenced by the violence in the game. You can see the fight in the video below.

    Besides not even having a clear story on what really happened, you continue to state the young teen in the gray tank, who happens to be african american, as the young black man. Is it really neccesary to continuously state his race throughout the article? You clearly don’t state the other two teens races in the video so why call the teen the gray tank black continuously throughout the article almost making it seem like he was the only offender in this video? In all actuality it is clear that all three teens and the teen in the baseball cap father were all in the wrong for behaving in such a mannor in public establishment, even if it is Walmart.

    Who’s the original source of this video? The video does not show evidence that this fight stemmed from purchasing a videogame. I’m curious on who gave the video this title.

    Bias article. Written by a conceited Britt. I hate stereotypes, but this article is a prime example of what some brittish stereotypes include.

    My mistake, He had the little Mexican teen in the corner not the white kid. His mother was even helping him keep the Mexican kid tied up.

    The video starts out with the mane saying LEAVE HIM ALONE!!! They are near the front of the store and electronics is usually in the back. So I call BS on the GTA V statement. I also call BS on the statement that the man and someone else corner the teen up against something outside. Like the teen was trying to leave and the man started the fight back up. To me it looked as though the black teen had the white teen CORNERED and the others were trying to pull the black teen off or whatever.

    Just slightly bias a little bit aren’t ya?

    I don’t see the point in reiterating the fact one of the lads was black so much. You never reference the white teen over and over by reiterating his colour. We are all flesh and bone regardless of colour. Couldn’t you just state the young teen gets hit by another young teen?

    I noticed a few things about your article that confounded me.

    First, you really need to proof read your work before you post it online.

    Second, why did you decide to give a blow-by-blow description of the video when you knew the video in question would just be embedded below your article? It makes your work pointless and highly redundant.

    Third, what was your point in writing this piece? Instead of tackling the meatier subject matter of the possibility that video game violence might in fact be percolating into society at large, you went with a play-by-play description of action that is easier, less time consuming, and most definitely more entertaining to watch than to read. Why?
