There's a new candidate for the Valley's dumbest social media sensation: Glendale's Keanu Yazzi.

Yazzi got his ass handed to him in a street fight Saturday night, and video of the brawl (if you could even call it that) is currently trending on Youtube.

It now seems Yazzi's a bit embarrassed about how awful he did in the fight and is blaming his poor showing on being too drunk.

See video of Yazzi's beat down after the jump.

"Yall GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME FEELING BAD FOR ME & SHIT I FOUGHT FADED DUMBASSES," Yazzi "tweeted" this afternoon, which was followed several hours later with "We were at a party before we came to fight me & shuffle were drunk when we fought."

See Yazzi's Twitter page here.

From the looks of it, Yazzi's probably not old enough to drink legally (check his Facebook page here). We called him this afternoon to ask how old he is, but he didn't immediately get back to us.

Assuming Yazzi's underage, using drunkenness ass an excuse for getting beat up is only the second dumbest thing this guy's decided to share with the world via-social media.

"Just sniffed [sic] som coke with krash tashy & allen," Yazzi "tweeted" yesterday.

Yazzi is just the latest Valley resident to document his criminal activity on social media websites.

Earlier this month, 18-year-old Sheldon Raquet bragged about his 13-year-old girlfriend -- and other misdeeds -- on Facebook. Needless to say, he was arrested.

In May, two girls posted video of them beating the crap out of each other on YouTube. About a week after we re-posted the video, we got a call from a Valley cop-shop asking if we knew the identities of the girl's involved in the brawl.

Yazzi may have been drunk when he got the crap beat out of him, but the fact remains:
