Instagram is an amazing place. You get to see some awesome photos shared by people who want to show the world what they see. But on the flip side, you also have to deal with people who have the camera pointed towards themselves. Yes, narcissism is the word that comes to mind, but come on, there's a little bit of that in almost all of us. We too like to show off, sometimes. But there's a line between sharing a selfie or what you're having for lunch and being a total douche. The line that separates the normal from the... whatever this is.
Meet Travers Beynon, who calls himself 'the Candyman' and runs the Instagram account candyshopmansion . Following the footsteps of pop-culture icons like the apparently immortal Hugh Hefner and fellow Instagram celebrity Dan Bilzerian , this Australian millionaire and tobacco tycoon is currently setting Instagram on fire, and by fire I mean online hate.
By the way, his caption for the image above is - Be different, Be yourself...never let them change you!!!
...even if you're a leather clad arch, right?
But you might be wondering why this author is being mean to this poor rich guy? He seems pretty harmless, right?
His caption - There's a time to play...and there's a time to work! WORK HARD, WORK HARDER, ACHIEVE, CELEBRATE.....REPEAT!!!
As long as you don't repeat this shirt, dude.
(Yo Candyman, Macho Man Randy Savage called. He wants his look back.)
He's even 10ft tall, or at least according to this photo he uploaded. You see, in rich douche world, facts don't matter.
But that still does not justify all the negativity against him, does it? But wait, what's this? Are those women on leash made from bikini strings?
He captioned it - Candyman's interpertation of "Doggy Style"
Here, we can see him about to enjoy a few burgers, right after they're done spraying them with some bikini farts.
Poor guy has to make do with sitting on his friends because he can't afford furniture. Got no wood, you see. (Get it? Get it? Okay sorry.)
Not just furniture, he could perhaps also use a graphic designer, or even the neighbour's kid who's decent with MS Paint.
And he can DEFINITELY use a dinner set.
"Sometimes you're the plate, sometimes I'm the plate."
Air-circulation is more important than doors.
Maneuvering through traffic after stealing some kid's bike.
The real owner of 'candy mansion'.
I really wish this were a GIF.
If you think he should get rid of the beard, think again.
But in all seriousness, the backlash he's getting online, it's totally justified. He might act cool and try to play the 'haters gonna hate' card, but dude, if you're putting your shit out there on the Internet, you deserve all the criticism and jabs you get. Especially when you're Travers Beynon. Money, fast cars, mansions, bikini clad women's photos might get you thousands of followers on social media. But that isn't the same as respect.
Stay classy, poor rich guy.
