Mustang City Councilman and pastor, Micheal Ray, is receiving backlash after posting a video on Facebook where he is holding a gun and threatening to rob Oklahomans at a Walmart.
Ray said the video was his attempt at remaking something he had seen online, and that it was simply a joke that went too far.
"As a nation, state and city, I know that we're going through a very dark time. This was simply my failed attempt at humor, and once that was brought to my attention, I couldn't delete it fast enough, because that was not my intent.
The Councilman then posted an apology, saying he never intended to cause public concern.
