5-year-old wants to kill Justin Bieber: yes, TLC can drag Toddlers & Tiaras lower

TLC has released a clip teasing tonight’s episode of Toddlers and Tiaras in which a five-year-old says she wants to kill Justin Bieber. Yes, the show that gave us a mother doping her kid up has found a new low.

In the clip, which is below, 5-year-old Bridgett says she wants to be an exterminator when she’s an adult. That’s on the disturbing/amusing line as she tells us, “I like to kill the worms; I like to kill grasshoppers; I like to kill bees.” The way she talks during the clip and laughter in the background suggests she’s being coached the entire time, which is both not surprising and obnoxious.

Then she says, “I like to kill Justin Bieber.” Adults laugh and she sticks her tongue out, because you know what’s funny? Goading a child into joking about murdering people.

Oh wait, that isn’t funny. And neither is TLC for promoting and airing this unethical, abusive show.
