An Ohio father filmed the moment he told his 8-year-old son that his mother died of a heroin overdose. The video has since gone viral on social media. 

Brenden Bickerstaff-Clark posted the video to Facebook on October 10, 2016. It has 31 million views and over 709,000 shares.

However, other’s scrutinized the video as ill and unthoughtful.
