Miami Vine Star Lele Pons Gets Slapped by Lincoln Road Living Statue (Video)
Miami teenager Lele Pons may be the 305's leading advocate of the "Do It For The Vine" attitude. The high schooler has amassed 2.4 million followers on the six second video social media network thanks to her outrageous stunts.
If you've ever wondered what would happen if you walk up to the people who perform as living statues on Lincoln Road and start messing with them, well Pons' Vine has the answer: they will slap the shit out of you.
This particular video appears to no longer be on Pons' account, but it's definitely her handiwork.
She's no stranger to randomly slapping (or being slapped by) apparent stranger in public. Which of course begs the question whether she really truly does not give a fuck and will do anything for the Vine, or if she's really good at a convincing random people they should hit her or let her hit them. Here's some of her other handywork from around Miami.
Here's another video of her going wild in a CVS and hitting some (apparently) random lady with a pack of toilet paper.
Here she is hitting a cop with a pie.
Here she is hitting a bride taking wedding photos with a pie.
Here she is recreating a toilet paper commercial in the middle of a Target.
And here she is causing more havoc in the Midtown Target.
But apparently she's making some bank off of her notoriety. Ritz Crackers commissioned her to make a Vine for their own account. No one was slapped, however.
