  So I messaged the parents:
 
"You should post pictures of the damage. Posting 2 traumatized children just makes you guys look like you're mean parents. "
 
I don't think 2 kids armed with Bey-blades could do that much damage. I call bluff. WIll update if I get a response.

I saw it as well. Apparently 4chan got wind of it, and that's why bids went over $10,000 earlier. I'm not sure if it genuinely is a case of mean parents, or if it's some kind of joke. In any case it's got all the attention the poster could have hoped for.

OMG!  Hahahaha, is that the fucking weeaboo anime with the fucking tops?!   
 
Oh god, I'm dying right now picturing two kids doing this.  HAHAHAHAHA! 
 
Wow, kids should be watching real anime like Bleach instead of that Naruto and weeaboo shit.

Okay that's pretty awesome.

As a parent, if the story is true, I don't have a problem selling them to replace the damage.  However, putting up their picture while they are that upset is a little much.

I'm wondering if the damage was even that bad or if they're trying to milk this shit by getting internet famous.
Posted by eroticfishcake

Oh wow they still make those toys? Well, regardless of that I've got a feeling that this is probably a fake but either way it's pretty amusing. 
 
Also, I've no idea what Bey-Blades they were playing with but it's fairly unlikely you can ruin a bathtub with them. I could be wrong though, it's been years since I've played them.

Can't believe there is is still such a thing as beyblades.

Also the one holding the toys looks like he is ploting to kill his parents while they slumber

What the hell is weeaboo? I've heard it quite a bit, but I still don't know what the hell it is. Why not just call them whatever the hell the Japanese word for posers is (katakana for that word does not count)?
Posted by Bucketdeth

Haha that's awesome, one kids crying and the others just pissed.

 Funny story
  Although the picture was not necessary to post on the Web 

Posted by iam3green

poor kids. maybe the parents should  have looked into what the damage done. she should maybe have bought them an actual arena for them. parents should have got them into a better anime.

Posted by BraveToaster

They should have posted images of the bathtub damage, instead of posting the kids.

White person that watches anime and thinks they're japanese, used to be called Wapanese.

It's a lie. A lie. It's all a lie.

@Aronman789: 
 
I'm guessing it's the type of person who ends every sentence with "kawaii desu ne" (I would've used "可愛いですね ", but I can't imagine them typing in actual Japanese. Also, I can't get Japanese text program thingies to work, so I have to copy and paste.) and pretty much hates every dub ever, since the Japanese version is clearly superior or some shit.

They make Beyblades heavy enough to "take a chunk" out of a bathtub?

The article on Know Your Meme.
 
Also, as a fan of anime, I have to say; most of it is "weeaboo shit".

Really. That's where your mind goes when you read of this. How sad.

I hope so. 
  
I know they would need to pay for the replacement, but the wording of the whole thing and the picture itself just makes me think the parents are worse!
Posted by Morien

Those poor kids. Yeah they might have realized the damage they were doing to the bathtub but to post their picture online? If their friends/peers in school get wind of this they won't be able to live it down. 
Forever to be known as the Beyblade Butchers! Or maybe the Bathtub Beybladers.. 

Posted by Trilogy

What the hell are beyblades? I'm guessing it's an anime toy or something from reading everyone's posts but I don't understand what significances they hold.
 
That picture of the crying kid sure is hilarious though...

Edited by Green_Incarnate

WTF is beyblade? 
 
And how can they ruin a bathtub?

Posted by Tireyo

XD That was random.

Edited by wolf_blitzer85

My pokemon stuff never ruined any shit.....just sayin' 
 
Or if we go way back there was this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy where you could strap your dude down to this table and then pour this green ooze all over them. In the end I would just get it everywhere and I totally ruined our bedroom floor with a giant green splotch. 
    
I'm impressed they decided to destroy the bathtub, I bet those things bounced around all over the place all awesome like.  
 

The kid on the right is totally gonna murder his parents someday.

Posted by GlenTennis

I used to work at a daycare and have had firsthand experience with these beyblades.
They are a spinning top of sort, with a meta ball bearing bottom, they can fuck up a wooden table real good and I imagine could probably mess up a bathtub.
I can understand the parent selling the toy to teach the children a lesson, put posting the picture seems like overkill.

And I've seen Giant Bomb stuff on r/gaming.  Someone tried to rack up upvotes from GB's website, BatmanBatmanBatman.com
Posted by Toms115

holy fuck that just reminded me of how fun those toys were. it's strange how something that you have absolutely no interaction with beyond making it spin can be so fun.

Oh I seen a lot of them in my local anime convention. They are weirdos. 
 
I sense a bad future with this family. The parents does not seem to understand the repercussions of the humiliating their kids visually on the internet.

You guys realize the kids probably aren't  into the TV show right? 
The TV show has been off the air for years, while the toys are still popular. 
I've got to say that the toys are fucking killer. Tops are dope and two tops with metal shit attacking each other? Fucking awesome

Doesn't have to be white, only has too be non-Japanese.

Does that mean KaosAngel is a weeaboo? Hell, he's been to Japan, and he's one of the few members on the site who speaks Japanese.

If you don't feel like whipping ass, public shame is a good way to get your kids to stop being house trashing assholes. But only if they haven't hit puberty yet. Once they hit puberty, you can't do this anymore or they'll totally suicide on you.

I think it's stupid that people make fun of and call people names for enjoying a different culture's form of entertainment. 
 
I used to be made fun of and called a wigger when I was much younger for enjoying Jazz, Funk, and Hip Hop and I've got to say, it's fucking stupid. 
Like what you like, who cares if it's what "posers" like. If you're a fan of Anime and like Beyblade, who the fuck cares? 
 
Whoever says anything like "Watch a real anime like Bleach" needs to get knocked down a few pegs. 
Do you wipe your ass with better toilet paper too?

It has nothing to do with "high and mighty", it's a common fact that Bleach has a far better plot and character than a show like Beyblade.  One set of anime is made for nerds, and another is made for people who just want something decent.

But, I don't see why someone can't enjoy one thing without getting flamed and told to watch something "better".
Or labelled because they enjoy something that others don't. 
 
I just think it's wrong, that's all.
