Memphis, Tennessee, Man Fatally Sets Himself on Fire on Facebook Live

Hey, Mark Zuckerberg!  What is the social benefit of Facebook Live again?
NBC News reports a Memphis, Tennessee, man set himself on fire on Facebook Live before running inside a crowded bar early Saturday and later died of severe burns at a hospital, authorities said Sunday. 

"It was the most horrific thing I've seen," witness Kim Koehler, who watched the man, identified as Jared McLemore, a local musician, run inside Murphy's Bar, told NBC affiliate WMC.
Memphis police called it a suicide. 

The video shows McLemore seated while he pours kerosene all over his body. He then lights himself on fire and runs off screen.
