Agora TikTok’s video with the headline “girl’s head cut off” goes viral and sparks backlash from people on social media platforms. Some people call it the “bathroom girl video”.
There are some indications that he is a man, though.
According to social media users who saw the video, TikTok user Mayenggo3 originally shared the video, but not much is known about the people in the video or the original user who shared it.
Heavy got some clues by getting the video translated.
Some people on social media who saw the video claim it showed a cartel executing a girl in the bath or shower, but the killers are not making any references to the cartels in the video. The page where the video was originally posted was set to private; she has only a few followers and a black ribbon in profile.
Twitter users shared warnings about a video showing a girl dancing before two men cut off a person’s head.
The video starts out as a dance video and then suddenly moves to the long bloody scene in the bathroom. Multiple men are involved in the beheading of the person in the video, and they speak Spanish. It is not clear whether the dancing girl is the same as the girl who was beheaded, or even a woman; their clothes are different. The beheaded person is wearing patterned shorts and a blue shirt, and the dancing girl is wearing a short black tank top and white shorts. A site called PsychoDuck.net preserved the entire video.
Juan D. Sanchez, a fluent Spanish speaker of Heavy, translated the conversation in the video as the two men speak Spanish as they beheaded what is believed to be a woman or girl on social media. He said it was possible that the victim was actually a man because the killers referred to the victim as “puto,” a word used to refer to men (puta would be a woman).
Contrary to reports on social media, he said the men were not referring to a cartel. They said, “This is what’s going to happen to all motherfuckers ***, f**k. Just like this whore Pillo.”
He said that Pillo is a name for a boy.
He said their accents showed they were Mexican. Our translator told us: “Pillo is a common nickname for someone named Guadalupe, Lupe, or Lupillo. The accents and the way they emphasize certain words make me believe they are from the Guanajuato or Jalisco region.” Guanajuato is a state and city in central Mexico. In 2020, the Los Angeles Times reported that drug cartel wars had turned Guanajuato into one of Mexico’s “deadliest states.” Jalisco is a Mexican state also torn by cartel violence.
This is a screenshot from the video with the victim’s face blurred:
The video is cut from the scene where the dancing girl or woman shows a man with gloved hands slowly and systematically chopping off the victim’s head with a knife in what appears to be a bathroom.
“If you see this video on TikTok or something like that, please don’t click it anyway. This is a video of a dancing girl and her head is cut off in the video, so please do not watch this video. Everyone be safe,” one Twitter user warned.
The video appears to have been deleted from TikTok, but conversations about it still continue on Twitter.
A video on YouTube says Mayenggo3 is the name behind the beheading video. The narrator of the video says that the young woman danced, but it only lasted a few seconds. Then a “brutal death” is shown. A man was seen ‘slitting the throat of a girl tied with a rope in a room in an unknown location’.
“It’s extremely scary to watch,” the narrator said.
People are demanding investigations as it is unclear who the girl or boy is or even whether the video is real. One Twitter user wrote, “There’s a video going around and it shows the girl being decapitated in the bathroom… ppl said it started with a little girl dancing and then showing a girl getting her head cut off in the bathroom…”
One site claims that the men in the video swore allegiance to a Mexican cartel before beheading the girl, but our translation shows that they are not referring to the cartels.
One Twitter user made the same claim, saying, “Bye tik tok, trending about a girl revealing secrets about the Spanish cartel and beheading her.”
“Why did I see a girl beheaded by the cartel,” another Twitter user wrote.
Other Twitter posts about the video said:
“! I do not recommend watching it! The video where the girl’s head was cut off…”
“Someone on Tiktok linked a video of a girl getting her head cut off and I didn’t know what it was about and there weren’t two, I watched it and felt SICK, please be careful.”
“I’m sending this to you so you’re aware of a video that spreads a girl’s head being cut off. Please be careful on tik tok and Facebook, it may look like a normal video but then it switches to the disturbing video, VERY bloody.”
