TikTok influencer faces CRIMINAL charges for hitting golf ball in Grand Canyon

TikToker at the Grand Canyon

TikTok tops another brainless move. The Grand Canyon in Arizona is a site of great natural and architectural heritage. It is also home to 91 species of mammals, 58 types of reptiles, and 18 species of fish.

Therefore, when a TikToker tried to be careless at the Grand Canyon while shooting a video of herself hitting a golf ball into the mountainous rocks, it was immediately noticed by authorities who narrowed her down and pressed criminal charges.

Although the user later deleted the clip from her social media accounts, the damage was already done.

“Do we really need to say, ‘don’t hit golf balls into the Grand Canyon’?” officials said in a statement after the incident.

“On October 26, an individual posted a video to her personal TikTok page showing her hitting a golf ball and throwing a golf club into the canyon near Mather Point,” they added.
