What`s Celebrity Swatting?

4 years ago

I`ve only heard the term used the other day for the first time and had no idea what "Celebrity Swatting" was. I read about how it happened to Tom Cruise, and now it`s happened to Kim Kardashian`s mother Kris Jenner.

What celebrity swatting is, is a prank phone call is made to the police usually reporting of a crime happening at a celebrity`s home like a break in. Because they`re usually in upscale neighborhoods, the police response is usually large, as in Swat Teams and all, hence the term Swatting.

It`s quite dangerous and a waste of police resources when pranksters do it. It`s not know if it`s a group or just individuals with copycats, but if they`re caught they can face some jail time for what they`re doing.

Kim on hearing about what happened to her mom responded via twitter, "These prank calls are NOT funny! People can get arrested for this! I hope they find out who is behind this. Its dangerous & not a joke!

For once I have to agree with her. NOT funny at all.

Talk the TALK
1. Did you know what Celebrity Swatting was before this post?
2. Have you ever made a prank call before?
