Florida City Using Viral Song “Baby Shark” to Deter Homeless People

Officials in West Palm Beach, Florida, have reportedly begun using the viral children’s song “Baby Shark” to deter homeless people from a city-owned facility.

“Baby Shark” is one of a number of songs that the city has begun using to steer the homeless population from the pavilion, which is typically rented out for events. The facility also has had a significant issue with homeless people using the location as refuge at night.

“People are paying a lot of money to use the facility,” West Palm Beach Parks and Recreation Director Leah Rockwell stated. “Thousands of dollars. We want to make sure people paying this money had a facility that was clean and open and continue to use it in the future.”
