Will the so-called ‘King of Instagram’ step up to the challenge?
It was an unintended consequence of the horrific events in Las Vegas.
A big name on Instagram –Dan Bilzarian — live-streamed the chaos as he made his way to safety.
That led to him being called out for running while so many ordinary dirt-under-their-fingernails type stepped up and rescued strangers.
Bilzerian didn’t appreciate being called out for running away from danger. Here’s what he posted in response:
Footage (yes we DID notice the camera was still rolling — because ‘priorities’) of himself hiding behind a concrete barrier and asking a cop for a gun. That doesn’t say much, does it? That’s still playing it safe.
He knew — if he has a lick of sense — that no cop is going to put a gun in a stranger’s hands. All he was doing was distracting a real cop from doing his job.
Meanwhile, people were bleeding out. People were being carried off the ‘field of battle’.
Maybe being USEFUL is not ‘heroic enough for Mr King of Instagram’. Maybe it’s a good thing he ‘tried and failed to become a Navy SEAL’. That’s not very impressive situational awareness.
But the feud wasn’t over yet.
Bilzerian then did some calling out of Meyer as ‘some marine’ and called him a ‘retard’ trying to ‘get his 5 minutes of fame’.
Meyer’s wife — Bristol Palin — has been getting prank calls.
‘It’s one thing you talk about me all day, I don’t care. But here’s the problem. My purpose in life is family.
‘You wanna bring my family in this, you wanna put my wife in danger by putting her phone number out to people? You got your little friends trying to FaceTime her?
‘My life’s not a game and it’s not entertainment either so what I will tell you is, my family’s purpose is my purpose and now you’re my mission.’
Meyer, staring coldly into the camera, continued: ‘This ain’t an option. You just need to tell me when and where and if not we’ll be somewhere together, I’m sure.
‘Why don’t we handle this like men? You got it? You got it, Dan? I’m waiting.’ —DailyMail
No word yet on whether he’s going to call off his little army of trolls, or whether he’ll step up and fight his own battles.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
