He absolutely kills it with the chicks. No, really.
18-year-old Haden Smith was experiencing love's keen sting, and well, he lashed out a little bit. Okay, quite a bit. Yeah, it was a lot.
The teenager from Limestone County, Alabama was feeling all the feels after a recent breakup with his girlfriend, and, like any good rom com would suggest, he decided the best way to win her back was mercilessly butchering chickens. Like. You. Do.
In addition, he wanted his mother to reach out to his girlfriend's parents to mend their relationship, and put in a good word for him, I guess?
And to add a little fuel to the romantic fire, if she didn't comply he'd not only start killing chickens, he allegedly threatened to burn his mom's house down, kill any cops, and then himself.
And he would do anything for love…
Of course, if you're going to start murdering poultry, you've got to let people know you mean business, so he started sending his mom pics of each chicken he slew every 15 minutes. Yes, he killed 6.
This guy was the Hans Gruber of taking chicken hostages.
