The video isn’t getting much love on YouTube, with the community lampooning their stupidity in the comments section.

The teens have been called “dumb asses,” “jigaboos,” stupid idiots,” “morons,” and “pussies,” just to name a few of the NSFW remarks.

“COPS GONNA WRECK YALL ASSES NOW!! wrote  nikkinizz in the top comment on YouTube.
