A Turkish father shot himself dad live on Facebook because his daughter was getting married without his approval. The man is named Ayhun Uzun, 54, from Kayseri, a city in the centre of the country. The Daily Mirror has translated his rant as:
“I am live streaming tonight, and it is my will, I do not want the ones who put me in this position to attend my funeral. One my daughter’s happiest day (her engagement), they called me and said to me: “Father come have a treat.”
“Nobody asked about me. Nobody treated me like a man. My father-in-law took my place and without having a right he approved my daughter’s wedding. Nobody said this girl’s father is alive. Though I would have waited for my daughter and family to say to me, “Come father, be with us.”
Uzun further added: “My wife called me and she told me. I said to her why didn’t you come and tell me, and she said, “We cannot make a personal visit to you…Maybe some of you will this a show. I do not want anybody to go through this thing that I am going through.”
During Uzun’s speech, his friends and relatives sent comments begging him to put down the gun. On the other hand, police are currently investigating the matter and his body has been taken to a morgue.
