Welcome to /r/MorbidReality, a subreddit devoted to the most disturbing content the internet has to offer. Here, we study and observe the darkest aspects of human nature.

A good post should foster insightful discussion by making you contemplate your humanity and life's struggles. If you are unsure about how to conduct yourself in this subreddit, a good rule of thumb to follow is to remain respectful and thoughtful at all times.


Make use of the report button when encountering rule-breakers. Breaking any rule is grounds for an immediate ban. The length of the ban is at the mod's discretion.

Commenting Rules

1 - Humor at the expense of someone's pain is strictly prohibited.

Refrain from posting jokes, memes, puns, reaction gifs and wordplays. Comments should contribute to thoughtful and serious discussion only. Do not make light of events using humor. This subreddit exists to study and mourn.

2 - Refrain from promoting hate speech.

This includes but is not limited to; racism, sexism, religion-bashing, name-calling, insults, and any other abusive/threatening language. "Abusive language" includes posts which are malicious or insulting in nature. Even if the person you are insulting committed a heinous act, do not describe how they should be punished.

3 - Unless it is directly relevant to the submission, keep political discussion to a minimum.

Comments that are deemed to be baiting an argument, no matter what side of the fence it falls on, will be removed. Conspiracy theories will result in moderator intervention.

Submission Rules

4 - Provide verification from a reliable source for your submission.

This is required for submissions that consist only of image(s) or video(s). Posts that are fake/fiction will be removed, even if they depict something that happens in real life.

5 - Screenshots from, or links to, social media websites are not allowed.

This is considered a low-effort post. Screenshots of social media are not a reliable source and can't be accepted as such. Screenshots of news sites and headlines aren't acceptable and should be posted instead as a link post to the site.

6 - Submission titles must be descriptive and accurate enough to understand exactly what the content is inside.

This helps prevent sensationalist, biased, and misleading titles. It also provides a trigger warning for those who may be affected by graphic content.

7 - No submissions that rely solely on gore in order to be disturbing.

We care about the story more than the actual graphic content. The focus of this subreddit is to focus on personal struggle, not just pictures of gore, dead bodies, and deformities. If you want to submit or look at pictures without context behind them, there are many subreddits listed below that can cater to your needs.

8 - Submission must have a direct correlation with people.

This subreddit revolves around the morbidity of human nature and human-related activities. (e.g., a lion killing a zebra is not allowed. An animal dying to natural causes is not allowed. A human abusing an animal is allowed. A human dying by an animal is allowed).

9 - Reposts will be removed without warning.

Check the new tab and search bar before you make a submission.

10 - There is a 24 hour ban on content showing dead or injured victims/perpetrators after a mass-casualty event.

This is to give time for families to be informed by authorities what has happened.

11 - Question posts are subject to approval via modmail.

These posts will be automatically removed until the user contacts us requesting approval.

Man lured a woman to a Florida home and raped her at knifepoint. Police think she isn't his first victim.

Three months after an accused serial rapist bonded out of an Orlando jail, investigators say he lured a woman — his sixth suspected victim — to an empty home in South Florida and sexually assaulted her at knifepoint.

"Why are you doing this?" the woman said she asked. He answered: "Because I can."

A long line of Dutchmen volunteering to join the Waffen-SS. Between 22,000-25,000 Dutchmen volunteered to fight in the Waffen-SS, more than any in Western Europe. Contrary to popular myths, the majority of them were middle class and true believers who sought to establish a "New Europe" (1941).
