Did Marcus Waiver of Columbus, Georgia remove his penis during an argument with his girlfriend/fiancee Amiya Copeland? No, that's not true: the story was published by some joker to a prank website where anyone can upload an image and create a realistic-looking news article with it. The story is not real.
Marcus Waiver, of Columbus, Georgia, was admitted to the St. Francis hospital on August 29th after an alleged argument between him and his estranged girlfriend, Amiya Copeland ended in a severance of his penis.
The two had been arguing reportedly for two weeks in regards to Mr. Waiver's infadelity in the past while engaged to Amiya Copeland. While arguing the estranged girlfriend reportedly told Mr. Waiver, "if you aren't cheating then you gone have to be drastic and cut ya dick off before you got out the house before i get back whitcha"

However, the picture used to illustrate the story actually shows Robert Coleman, a man who punched a woman to death:
The verbal exchange lasted only 45 seconds. Robert Coleman threw one punch. Fedelia Montiel-Benitez died in a hospital 10 days later, and Coleman will now most likely go to prison for 10 years for second-degree murder.
The site that published the story is a prank website where users can submit their own headline, description and photo to create realistic looking prank news articles.
Users don't even need to upload their own image, there is a built-in search function that will pull an appropriate image from Google image search.
The site is part of a larger network of prank sites all using the same basic layout but sometimes in different languages. It appears to be run by a Belgian company named Mediavibes or Media Vibes which is managed by a man named Nicolas Gouriou according to registration records.
Each site in the network comes with a disclaimer (sometimes translated into a different language) that reads:
This website is an entertainment website, jokes are created by users. These are humourous jokes, fantasy, fictional, that should not be seriously taken or as a source of information.
So don't fall for this prank now that we've warned you about it!
