A video of a prank zombie attack going around the internet is being criticized as both insensitive and dangerous after the recent cannibal attack of a homeless man in Miami.

The video shows a young guy running around the streets pretending to be a zombie wearing a ripped, bloodied shirt, growling at people and scaring them away.

At the beginning of the footage, the screen says: 'On Saturday May 26, 2012, a naked man was chewing on the face of another naked man in downtown Miami.

'After police arrived the man kept eating and growling, the police had to open fire until the cannibal was dead.....It's not over, it's only the beginning!'

The incident they are referring to is that of Rudy Eugene - the man apparently high on a potent form of LSD. He attacked a homeless man last week, beating him and eating his face off during a horrific 18-minute ordeal before being shot dead by police.

The video is being slammed as sick and dangerous.

Some people are worried there will be more copycat pranks and someone will get seriously hurt or killed.
