Netizens say to leave the friends who pull this kind of April Fool's prank on you

A popular text message April Fool's prank is being criticized for its insensitive nature. 

On April 1st, a post was made on a popular online community forum that showed a text pretending to notify the receiver that the sender was dead. 

The text reads: "[WEB sender] Gacheon College Hospital 7th morgue deceased *** Name redacted (age 18 years old) 2020, April 1st 12:14 was rushed to the hospital after a car accident. Died of over bleeding at 12:51. *** Name redacted's handphone registered your number so that all messages would be forwarded to you." 


 Netizens are criticizing this prank saying: 

"Isn't a rule not to play pranks about death?"

"You need to beat that person up until you get a message like that on April 2nd."

"I can't say much given that they're saying they died instead of their friend, but I wouldn't be surprised if they lost their friend." 

Excessive April Fool's Day pranks can lead to fines and prison time, spending up to 5 years in prison and being fined 10 million won (~8,000 USD). There may be additional charges without negotiation due to the fact that cases like this cause police to waste their time to investigate and punish the malicious pranksters.

You'd have to actually have a learning difficulty to think sending this is funny.
