Judge responds to bloke’s username “BUTTF@*#ER 3000” in Zoom court case
As you’re no doubt aware, Covid has rocked the world, but life still has to continue. Yeah, nah, fortunately, we live in an age where technology has made sure s**t doesn’t have to change too much. Take for example the odd bloke who gets busted with dr*g paraphernalia. Clearly, we can’t be letting these guys roam the streets without a slight tap on the wrist – and that’s where the courts are important. Fortunately, they’ve been able to make sure they continue through the blessing of Zoom.
Of course, if you’ve ever used the internet, you’ll know that ‘crazy’ usernames are a big part of its appeal. Deadset, if you don’t want to be Bob Smith online, you don’t have to be. Yeah, nah, you can be BIGWANG666 or FLUFFYCATLOVER69 and no one will care.
Well, some people will, but by and large, you just have to remember that there’s a time and place for usernames like that. Unfortunately for BUTTF*CKER 3000, that place isn’t the Michigan court or its Zoom hearings.
Nathan Saxaon was to come up in front of the judge on drug paraphernalia charges. In this instance, you’d think you’d want to avoid any undue attention. Saxaon, however, didn’t realise he hadn’t changed his username.
Naturally, Judge Jeffrey Middleton, the presiding judge, wasn’t too impressed. “We’ll bring this fool in,” he told the assembled Zoom meeting. “Good morning sir, what’s your name?” he asked Saxaon, whose username was displaying as Buttf*cker 3000.
“Nathaniel Saxaon, sir.”
“Your name’s not Buttf*cker 3000, you yoho. Logging in to my court with that as your screenname. What kind of idiot logs into court like that.”
Saxaon’s face is a picture as he realises his error. “Your honour, if I may explain,” he said. “I think it was whenever I set up my Zoom account or whatever. Butt, um, F’er, is my iPhone pairing name for my Bluetooth speaker sir. It’s an inside joke. I’m embarrassed. I’m sorry.”
Give the video a squiz to see this one play out.
Final thought: Yeah, this is gold. Of course, it could happen to anyone. We’re sure you’ve all had dodgy email accounts at some point, so perhaps you can relate. Let us know your stories in the Facebook comments section.
