Old video of Sen. Flake's son mimicking suicide resurfaces

The teenage son of U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) has made news again this week after a video of himself simulating suicide by gun was found from 2011.

Phoenix New Times grabbed the video and re-uploaded it before it was turned off to the public.

In the video, Tanner Flake, now 15, pointed a gun to his head and pretended to pull the trigger. The screen then goes black.

Earlier in the week, slur-filled, violent tweets against blacks, gays and Jews from the boy were discovered. His father issued an apology for the tweets, some of which were as old as six months.
