Nikolai Ivanisovich, 62, is suffering from terminal brain cancer and has chosen to end his suffering before millions of watching eyes.
“Are you serious? Is this even legal? I can’t imagine that the police, or the internet would allow such a thing.What about the major impact that something like this will have on easily influenced people now. This could become a crazy new trend, an I don’t believe it should be accepted. claims Cincinati reader Cathy G. A series of tweets voicing their opinions are starting to heat up on Twitter one tweet also read”WTF?! Some guy is gong to broadcast his live death tomorrow online this is unbelievable!”
The 62-year-old Nikolai Ivanisovich, who is terminally ill with brain cancer has chosen to die before cameras, and what could be millions of interested viewers.
