Jessi Slaughter’s father Gene Leonhardt dead at 53
Jessi Slaughter‘s father Gene Leonhardt has died of a heart attack. He was 53.
RIP. But he will live forever on the Internet.
Jessi is now in foster care, after her father punched her in the mouth last March. She posted an apology video (via a friend since she has no computer now) on the day of his death.
For those who don’t know, Jessi became subject of a Internet “bullying” after she posted some really offensive YouTube videos. Her father then went on a rant on YouTube which spread like wildfire.
