A man was stabbed to death in a Paris subway, as onlookers posted videos and photos of him on social media — rather than helping, local media reported.

Andy Brigitte, 22, was killed by a man who flew into a rage after he was bumped at the Châtelet-Les Halles station Friday night.

“No one lifted their finger to help Andy,” the victim’s distraught mom, Linda Brigitte, told French paper Le Parisien.

“Today, social media is too present. No one came to my son’s aid. Instead, they filmed it and shared it on social media,” she added tearfully.

Brigitte, a young mechanic and native of the Caribbean island Martinique was stabbed multiple times in the chest by an unidentified 33-year-old.

As he laid in agony bleeding, other passengers posted videos of him on Snapchat and Twitter with the hashtag #chatelet, the outlet L’Obs reported.


“Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”
