‘People are dying, you’re running away’: Hero Dakota Meyer rips famous poker player for filming himself fleeing Vegas shooting

Powered by Topple

Professional poker player and Instgram star Dan Bilzerian was recording amid a hail of bullets in Las Vegas when a gunman opened fire and killed at least 50 people.

Bilzerian is seen running away from the danger, which might be expected for regular folks, but this card shark likes to present himself as a tough guy.

A detail Marine Corps veteran and Medal of Honor winner Dakota Meyer was quick to note as he rips Belzerian on Instagram, saying “people are dying, you’re running away not helping them.”

“This is why children shouldn’t classify heroes by their followers or their photos,” the decorates Marine wrote in the post.

He then spoke directly to Bilzerian.

@danbilzerian this is what kills me about people like you. Always playing ‘operator dress up’ and so so tough when the cameras are on,” the Marine vet said. “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 you’re not.

“People are dying, you’re running away not helping them and pretending it’s worthy of a video is disgusting.”

There’s no mincing of words there.

The video Bilzerian took can be seen below.

Geraldo Rivera calls BS on San Juan mayor’s false Trump blame: ‘I’m here. Who is dying?’

“Holy f**k, this girl just got shot in the f**king head,” Bilzerian is heard saying as he runs away from the gunfire.

*Caution: Strong Language

As for Meyer’s comment about the poker player acting like a tough guy, a couple of photos from Bilzerian’s Instagram account fits the bill.

It’s pretty much impossible to defend against a crane kick
