An Emmaus teen who ran naked onto the field during Friday night’s Emmaus High School football game at Bethlehem Area School District Stadium became an overnight social media sensation. Peers immediately jumped on Twitter, setting the streaker up as a hero and calling for his liberation.
The 17-year-old boy was arrested for his stunt and will face his day in Northampton County Juvenile Court.
Most who commented on yesterday’s Patch story about the streaker had a “boys will be boys” attitude and termed the incident a simple “prank.”
However, one very vocal Patch commenter who goes by the name “D. Nile,” found nothing amusing about the 17-year-old’s stunt.
“Children exposing themselves nude in public is not funny...and people snapping pictures and posting them on the internet is even less funny,” D. Nile wrote.
