A Mexican car park attendant who posted shocking pictures on Facebook of him holding what appeared to be a real gun at the head of his two-year-old nephew has been forced to apologize after the images went viral
Luis Martin Perez Rocha, 26, took the two images of him with his nephew at home in Cuajimalpa de Morelos, a borough of Mexico City, and then decided it would be amusing to upload them when he got to work. But neither social media users nor his bosses were impressed when the photos went viral, causing a storm of protest and forcing the man to issue a YouTube video apologizing for the act a few days later. Previously, he had uploaded a similar photograph in which he was aiming the same apparent toy gun at a woman.
