The teen who filmed the 'Damn, Daniel' meme has been swatted, a term that's showing up more often as having a SWAT team called on someone as a prank becomes more and more common. Police in Riverside, California were called to his house to investigate a claim that the teen had shot his mom. When they arrived they discovered that it was "all a hoax".
Thankfully, no one was hurt. The police currently have no leads on who could have made the fake emergency call.
Internet fame isn't all bad though. At least the 'Damn, Daniel' guys got to be on Ellen, right? I mean Daniel got a lifetime supply of shoes. And Josh, the one who got a SWAT team called to his house, got... a surfboard. Cool.
