Tommy Jordan, a North Carolina dad, recently taught his teenage daughter the hard way to show some respect - and that nothing on the Internet is really private.

He pulled out a gun and pumped nine bullets into her laptop - on camera.

When her dad discovered a Facebook rant that she thought she had blocked from him, he decided to respond in a way that will certainly never be forgotten.

Jordan, of Albemarle, N.C., posted this video on YouTube, responding to his daughter Hannah's post, in which she complained about having to do chores:

"I'm not your damn slave," Tommy, who works in IT and discovered the post when adding software to her laptop to upgrade it, read from Hannah's post.

"We have a cleaning lady for a reason."

After continuing to read his 15-year-old's missive, he fired bullets into her computer from a .45 handgun. That's one way to get your point across.

Jordan also addresses Hannah on camera in the video, saying that she can clean up the house and get a new computer if she pays for one herself.

Tommy also noted that Hannah must pay him back for the bullets and software he just installed. Ouch. No laws were broken, and there will be no investigation.

Just the same, the father's actions have sparked controversy and discussion, with some finding it way out of line, and others praising his backbone.

"Maybe a few kids can take something away from this," he wrote on YouTube.

"If you're so disrespectful as to post this kind of thing on Facebook, you're deserving of some tough love. Today, my daughter is getting a dose of tough love."

If you up and died, how would people respond online?

What final words would you wish you could've shared?

Thanks to this new Facebook application, you can plan it out. "If I Die" enables you to craft a video or a text message that will be published only after ... you know.

All you have to do is download the app, write or record a farewell, designate one or more "Facebook trustees" and bada-bing. You're prepared if a piano falls on your head.

Hey, death is always right around the corner. Get crackin':

Jon Bon Jovi may be wanted dead or alive ... but he's not the former.

He may sing about goin' down in a blaze of glory, but he has not yet.

We're here all day. Despite rumors that Bon Jovi is dead, we are happy to report that he has not been shot through the heart. He's still living ... and not even on a prayer.

Jon Bon Jovi Lives!!!!

As the rumors of Bon Jovi's death began circulating online last night, the rocker must've heard them, because he posted photo of himself in front of a Christmas tree.

Holding a sign that reads "Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey," with the current date and time, he gave a shout out to his home state while proving he's alive. Classic.

The rumor originated when some lame gossip site reproduced a 2009 L.A. Times story announcing the death of Michael Jackson and just put Jon Bon's name in there.

Bon Jovi's friend, David Bergman, posted the above pic on the band's Facebook page with the caption that Bon Jovi "is alive and well." Death hoax? Foiled, hilariously.

Kim Jong Il died for real though. That happened.

Signs you're taking Facebook a bit too seriously: You SET SOMEONE'S HOUSE ON FIRE after a dispute resulting in being unfriended on the social networking site.

Nikki Rasmussen of Des Moines, Iowa, and her husband were fast asleep the other night when Jennifer Christine Harris set their garage ablaze and peaced out.

The fire thankfully woke the pair, who managed to escape as the siding on their house melted. Yes, this all happened because of an argument on Facebook.

Nikki's husband Jim told the police that the two women had been engaged in a petty, catty battle via the website and just recently, Nikki unfriended Jen.

Big mistake. Police Det. Jack Kamerick said: “Things were posted on Facebook. Jen asked Nikki to create an event on Facebook for a party. Nikki did that."

"As the date for the party approached “there were a lot of ‘declines,’ on Facebook, the detective said. It was looking like the party might be a bust."

"The dispute apparently blossomed from there. So when the garage went up in flames, Harris became the first name that occurred to the victims."

Kim Kardashian should keep this in mind when she unfriends Kris Humphries.

Is Frances Bean Cobain engaged?

The 19-year-old daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain has been dating Isaiah Silva for more than a year. He's in an L.A.-based band, the Rambles.

The engagement rumors started after both quietly changed their Facebook relationship status to engaged a few weeks ago, according to the OC Weekly. Hooray!

A source confirms their happy news of Cobain's engagement to People, as well. However, they have since changed their statuses back, so ... that's something.

Frances Bean Cobain and Isaiah Silva

Another source tells Us the engagement is still on, though. So who knows.

According to the report, the couple both use fake names on Facebook – she goes by Frances Rachel Leigh Cook, while he uses Isaiah David Berkowitz-Cusack.

Their Facebook pages show comments that hint at an engagement.

"Getting to spend the rest of my life loving my best friend makes me the luckiest woman in the world," Frances Bean Cobain wrote at one point of Isaiah Silva.

Cobain, who was just 20 months old when she lost her dad, has had a whirlwind of an upbringing to say the least. Here's hoping she's happy, engaged or not.

Facebook is very, very sorry.

The company has issued an apology to Courtney Stodden and reinstated her access after it had denied it for "inappropriate sexual conduct," a fact that became public once her mother said Courtney is too sexy for Mark Zuckerberg's creation.

"This page was removed in error and has been restored," Facebook said in a statement to E! News. "We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused."

Inconvenience?!? The situation gave Stodden's mom yet another chance to make headlines. She'll probably send Facebook a muffin basket.

"We're happy that it was finally addressed, as I'm sure many others have dealt with similar abuse and didn't know they could do anything about it," Keller says, once again comparing this incident to actual bullying: "Putting a stop to cyber bullying is something Courtney is very involved in. She's happy something was done!"

Given her massive fan base and given that she is seemingly everywhere, it's not too big of a shock that Lady Gaga would be the subject of a celebrity death hoax.

However, for the same reasons, it was easy to establish that this was not the case, unlike with someone who's a little more off the radar (say, Spencer Pratt).

An online scam claims Lady Gaga was found dead in a hotel room. Not the case, but at least the hoax-spreaders went for the traditional celebrity die-off situation.

Gaga Goes Gaga

Some enterprising cyber-criminals are, for some reason, spreading the following headline via Facebook: "BREAKING: Lady Gaga Found Dead in Hotel Room."

It links to a BBC News story and a description reading "This is the most awful day in US history." If you click the link, you end up on a fake BBC spam site.

We got out of there real quick, but the bottom line is that Facebook scammers are trying to pilfer you to "Like" stuff and earn a commission. Simply pathetic.

Mother Monster is alive and well, we assure you - the singer was seen cheering on her hometown New York Giants at stupidly-named MetLife Stadium Monday.

New York won, 28-16, as St. Louis may suck more than Facebook spammers.

Can you really ban students and teachers from being Facebook friends?

We'll soon find out in Missouri. According to Missouri Senate Bill 54, which goes into effect on August 28, any social networking - including, but not limited to, Facebook - between teachers and students is prohibited.

It’s all part of an effort to “more clearly define teacher-student boundaries.”

FB Lettering

However, KSPR reports that it’s only direct social media contact that’s prohibited by Missouri's new law; teachers are still allowed to create Facebook pages where all students have direct access to the teacher in a more public setting.

Inappropriate contact between students and teachers is the root of the bill.

Lady Gaga may be the highest-earning, top-selling and best-known woman in popular music today, but Rihanna has more "Likes" on Facebook.

This week, Rihanna accumulated enough Facebook fans to surpass Gaga and claim the throne as the platform's top ranking female celebrity.

According to their Facebook stats, as of Saturday, Rihanna had 40,699,853 likes, and Lady Gaga had 40,611,908, giving RiRi a slight lead.

Of course, Gaga has her by close to five million fans on Twitter, so Rihanna can't lay claim to being the queen of all social media just yet.

Shakira is the diva with the third most Facebook followers. Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Shakira hold the No. 5, 6, and 8 positions overall.

Three men make the top 10: Eminem (No. 3, 43,367,713 likes), Michael Jackson (No. 7, 38,069,882), and Justin Bieber (No. 10, 33,035,903).

Even a Gold medalist can be a Belieber.

Upon winning the Best Female Athlete at the ESPY Awards last night for the second consecutive year, skier Lindsey Vonn took to the stage, thanked ESPN, her husband and her fans... and then asked Justin Bieber if he'd take a photo with her for Facebook.

The singer obviously obliged, as you can see HERE. Check out the speech below.
