Fake News: Teenager Did NOT Accidentally Chop Off His Genitals During Sex With A Blender

Did Brian Johnson, a 16-year-teenager, accidentally remove his junk when trying to have sexual intercourse with a blender? Of course not, the cringeworthy story was entirely made up and it is not true.

The story recently went viral again via an article published by 8shit.net on March 24, 2018 titled "Teenager Accidentally Chops Off His Genitals During Sex With A Blender" (archived here) which opened:

16-year old Brian Johnson was apparently alone in his parents' house and decided to engage in sexual intercourse with various objects around the residence.

He admitted to having sex with a toaster, a vacuum cleaner, and an old video recorder, as well as a dozen other items.

This strange sexual orgy could have continued for hours, but it was suddenly interrupted by a terrible accident.

The young man had his genitals inside the electric blender and he accidentally hit one of the appliance's button, activating it.

He was instantly emasculated by the rotating blade and his genitals were reduced to shreds in a matter of seconds.

But the story was actually copied in full from a May 14, 2017 article on World News Daily Report, a satire website:

A teenage boy from Polk County in Missouri was transported to the hospital this afternoon after a sexual experience involving a kitchen blender went horribly wrong. 16-year old Brian Johnson was apparently alone in his parents' house and decided to engage in sexual intercourse with various objects
