Senator Jeff Flake's 15-year-old son Tanner is more inept at using the Internet than we thought he was five minutes ago.

Soon after we revealed that Flake's son calls himself "N1ggerKiller" in an iPhone game, and casually refers to people as "faggots" and "Jews" on his Twitter account, we were sent this video, of Flake's son pretending to commit suicide in a YouTube video.

Check out the video below, which we have re-uploaded, after Tanner set it to "private" :

"13 year old child was found dead in home," the video description says. "This video was found on the computer and leaked to the internet. lol why would somebody want to see something like this anyways? people are weird."

The video was uploaded to Tanner Flake's YouTube account in 2011, when he was 13 years old.

You can see from the comments Tanner has left on YouTube videos that he appears to have a penchant for calling people "faggot."
