The competition on Vine is insane because it appears so easy. Constantly upload funny clips that are only six seconds in length and you can become a new media star. Of course, funny is subjective and what might appear funny to Viners perhaps might not appear funny to others — say, the police for instance.
Delvon Irving, a Chicago-based rapper and viral prank star, found himself in cuffs after trashing a 7/11 and ransacking it. Naturally, he was caught because he decided it would be a good idea to upload the footage of said heist to YouTube, Facebook and Vine. Along with his other petty malfeasances.
