  • It's funny to joke when its small and nonthreatening in your point of view.... to call them assholes makes you an assholes because its clear they did not know people were dying (yet).

    • @qwerty4242 @qwerty4242 They stated on yutube that they later learned there were fatalities. So why do they keep the video up?

      And what was funny about saying "Stop crying" when they see someone distraught?

    • @Overcoated I am not trying to be a dick here at all, but I think they thought it was a harmless common fire that everyone ran away from. He obviously saw it and ran, since he said it was at the Nike store. He couldnt know that sitting outside the mall..... they are just 2 jokers underestimating the fire, thats all im saying

  • The children were from Spain, Japan, the Philippines and Benin among other countries. A Spanish diplomatic source in Madrid told Reuters that four of the dead children were Spanish.

  • If these guys could be identified I would imagine they might have an extended stay in Qatar !! I wouldn't imagine they'll be out for the 2018 world cup!
