Charles Ramsey, the Cleveland hero who helped in the rescue of Amanda Berry and two other missing women Monday, has shot to Internet stardom and now his interviews have been auto-tuned for a whole new round of viral hype.

Ramsey reportedly heard screaming coming from his neighbor's home Monday and saw a woman struggling to get out of a small opening in a door. Neighbors, including Ramsey, helped rescue Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight, and a 6-year-old girl police say Berry gave birth to while in captivity, from a suburban Cleveland home where the women were reportedly held for the last 10 years after being abducted in separate incidents between 2002 and 2004.

The home's owner, Ariel Castro, 52, and his two brothers have been arrested for the alleged kidnapping.

Ramsey's colorful post-rescue interview immediately caught on online and became the talk of Twitter.




McDonald's even spoke out about Ramsey after he name-checked the fast-food restaurant in his interview.

"I heard screaming," Ramsey told Cleveland's ABC affiliate. "I'm eating my McDonald's. I come outside. I see this girl going nuts, trying to get out of a house. So I go on the porch, and she says 'help me get out. I've been here a long time.'"


Now, Ramsey's comments have been set to music by The Gregory Brothers, a musical group notorious for creating viral videos, including the infamous "Bed Intruder Song" inspired by Internet celebrity Antoine Dodson after he gave a similarly colorful local news interview in 2010.

Online reactions have been mixed, with some saying the video is insensitive in light of the terrible ordeal the three women went through.

"The auto-tune of Charles Ramsey is pissing me off," one person wrote on Gawker.com. "It's basic mockery and racism."

"Here's my question: Why is everyone racing to give money to HIM?" another posted. "Sure, he helped a woman who was trying to get out of a locked house. Great job. But why isn't everyone more interested in giving money to the women, who endured 10 years of unspeakable horror?"
