Irish journalist Donie O’Sullivan has told how his rental car was stolen in the US, with police telling him he was “hit by the Kia Boyz”.
The CNN correspondent was in St. Louis when the car was stolen.
He tweeted, “So my rental car was stolen in St.Louis last night…
“Cop asks what kind of car that was…I say a Kia. He nods his head and says something like, ‘Oh yeah, you got hit by that Kia Boyz…’
“Cops say it’s an online challenge… but…”
In another post, he wrote: “The cop I dealt with said that Kia stealing tactics are spreading around the internet and that some people have been posting videos of stolen cars for likes.
“The important lesson here: Don’t drive. Kia. (I didn’t choose the car from the side).”
