There’s nothing more douchey than bragging about how rich you are on social media. While many can call us haters, it’s just not good for karma if you are without any sense of humility- just like this 19-year old millionaire who loved to boast about his expensive cars on Instagram- until rich people terrorists lit four of his cars on fire.
Aleem Iqbal is one of those “rich kids of Instagram.” He isn’t self-made, he gets all of these supercars working for his father’s U.K. luxury car firm in Birmingham which leases Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini, Ferrari and Bentley cars. He also refers to himself as “Lord Aleem” (reminds me of Lord Farquaad from Shrek)- need we say more? Within one week, arsonists found and burned four cars rented out by his father’s firm.
The first car was a $575,000 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster he leased for a wedding on June 6th. Three hooded men pulled up to a house in a Mercedes 4×4 that the car was parked outside of in Luton, Beds, doused the Lambo in gasoline and lit it on fire. It was all caught on CCTV.
The next week, two Audi R8 Spyders and a Bentley Flying Spur were also lit on fire closer to his father’s Platinum Executive Travel office, all worth about $340,000. As expected, Iqbal spoke about the incidents of “rich on rich” crime on his Facebook and Twitter.
“I’m not really in a great state of mind at the moment, I’ve had half a million pounds worth of cars destroyed in the last few days.”
“I’m not sure if it’s an attack on my family because they would have come directly after me or my family if that was the case.”
“However, I do believe it could be a vile act of jealously [sic] towards my business or it could just be mindless vandals on an arson spree.”
“Either way, one thing is for sure they will be caught and when they do I suggest you sit back and enjoy the show because they will be going down for a long time.”
“Fortunately the driver was in the house at the time but this could have endangered lives, there could have been dead bodies.”
“These arsonists really don’t know what they could have caused.”
“When I was told about what happened I felt the ground beneath me move.”
“It has taken a lot of hard work and effort to get where we are and we cannot take a loss of £340,000.”
“I thought it would be toast but the passenger seat and dashboard is damaged so hopefully we should be able to get it back onto the road within four weeks.”
Hard work indeed… Call me cold hearted, but I feel no feels for this kid. I’m not a fan of violence, but do you think he got what he deserved?
