Dan Bilzerian in hot water after insulting a marine who criticised him
Now, I did not know who Dan Bilzerian was until just a few moments ago. In those moments, all I seemed to learn about him is that he is a professional poker player who is famous for being a total a**hole. Also, he degrades women. Basically, he's just kind of a jackass. I don't see much appeal in the guy.
There's nothing worse than someone who acts like they're superman. "Oh yeah," says the typical insecure loudmouth at a party, someone like Bilzerian. "I could totally beat up three guys at once, run up a hill and grab a rifle, fire it at a sniper, then run down and beat ten other dudes, no question."
Now, pit that guy against the actual troops, and surely this dude is going to lose. Fake hyper-macho jerks don't exactly blend well with actual marines, right? Well, that's what's happening to Dan Bilzerian, as a marine, Dakota Meyer, has criticized him on Instagram for all his tough talk about the Las Vegas shooting, including asking for a gun to go fight the shooter.
"This is why children shouldn't classify heroes by their followers or their photos. Dan Bilzerian this is what kills me about people like you. Always playing "operator dress up" and so, so tough when the cameras are on. A woman just got shot in the head and you are running away filming; that's not what operators do. Please stop trying to be someone your not. People are dying, you're running away not helping them and pretending it's worthy of a video is disgusting."
Ouch. So, Bilzerian's feelings got hurt, and he shot back on his Instagram story. Bilzerian said:
"So I wake up this morning and the news is talking s**t saying that some marine was saying that I was a p***y for running away and I should have stood my ground. So if we follow that retard’s logic we’d probably have 600 dead if everyone stood their ground.
"He's there blogging about me while I'm there delivering 8,000 pounds of food and water in Vegas and going to hospital. Just to be clear, the first f***ing thing I did after we dropped those two girls to hospital was I went and got my gun and I went straight f***ing back there and I was there for three f***ing hours."
Wow. Kind of a garbage human, huh? Here's the original video that inspired the marine to criticize Bilzerian, showing him getting in the way of police to play pretend in the midst of a mass shooting.
So, two notes: one, that hat looks awful, and it's hilarious that he thinks that hat is anything but total corn. Second, you really have to be a total idiot to get in the way of police during a mass shooting like this. The man is living in a fantasy land, he's not rational.
Bilzerian, for all his wealth, women and fame, is really just your standard keyboard warrior who wants to be some fake conception of an 'alpha male', only looking like an idiot in the process. If you want to read more about his saga of stupid during the Las Vegas shooting, you can click here.
