British YouTuber Will ‘WillNE’ Lenney took aim at Instagram celebrity Bobby Misner, after the Australian bailed on a planned trip to Saint-Tropez just 24 hours before they were set to depart.

Bobby Misner went viral in early 2019, when popular YouTube commentators such as Danny Gonzalez, Jack ‘jaackmaate’ Dean and WillNE himself made videos calling him out after he released a video entitled “LIFE of a BILLIONAIRE’s SON,” which showed him flying around the world and driving expensive cars.

Despite that, the Englishman, who successfully fooled British media into thinking he was entering I’m a Celebrity in 2018, decided to create a video with Misner, planning to fly himself, Stephen ‘StephenTries’ Lawson and a cameraman to Saint-Tropez to meet him, and switch lives for a day.

Instagram: WillNEWillNE and StephenTries wanted to swap lives with Misner.

Just 24 hours before their flight though, WillNE received a direct message from the Australian on Instagram, informing him that he wouldn’t make it to France with the group after all, and giving a pretty bizarre excuse.

“At this point, I had it booked in for a month,” the 23-year-old explained, “And I had spent thousands on this big video to end the summer. I sent him my boarding pass, and straight after that, literally the next message, he canceled. ‘Can’t go back bro, apologies. My dad just found out I spent 10,000 on his card last weekend in Saint-Tropez.’”

“Nice one Bob. It’s not fucking V-Bucks mate. So less than 24 hours before we were set to fly out, I had to tell everyone that the video was on the ropes.”

YouTuber Memeulous called it “karma” for WillNe apparently ripping up his Yu-Gi-Oh cards, while StephenTries claimed he wasn’t surprised by the last-minute backtrack, sending a video to WillNE joking: “I knew this would happen. ‘Spend a couple days in the south of France with me and a billionaire,’ it all sounded too good to be true.

“Fortunately, I’ve watched a bit of Bobby, and what he makes up for with his daddy’s money he lacks in personality, so maybe it’s a blessing!”

The trio embarked on their journey anyway, deciding that if they couldn’t spend a few days with Misner in Saint-Tropez, they would try and mimic the lifestyle by recreating his Instagram photos.

With some Photoshop trickery and early morning pool visits, WillNE and StephenTries were able to at least look like they lived the high life in the south of France, even if their billionaire guide deserted them at the last minute.

Vinnie Hacker lashes out at “manipulative” fans after TikTok fame

Vinnie Hacker has spoken out about the problems of TikTok stardom, saying some of his fans are “manipulative” and “controlling.” He echoed the sentiment that nobody is perfect, and that people should “live life and learn from it.”

The role models and idols of today appear almost out of nowhere thanks to social media. The medium also leads to a host of those celebrities being quite young.

One of them is Vinnie Hacker. The TikToker has over 5.7 million fans on the platform, as well as 2 million on Instagram. However, life in the limelight has come with its own set of problems. Hacker feels like he’s been forced to live to unreasonable standards put by his fans.

“Why do some people want to control my life. Telling me who I can and can’t talk to. Saying that you’ll only allow me to be with “this person.” Grow up. Don’t be manipulative,” he said in a TikTok.

“You preach against manipulation and then go on and make sure that they live a life that’s satisfying to you and not them. One mistake and a person’s career is over in this area of work.”

“In the eyes of the internet, people are subjected to be role models. And people say to not set unnecessary standards for others, but wouldn’t you think a life without mistakes and growth and perfection is more of a high standard than learning and growing?”

He also said that once you get thrown into the social media machine, you can’t really pull yourself out. Ultimately, these stars live and die by their fans’ judgment.

“Once it gets past that breaking point to where someone becomes relevant, the assumptions come and get dragged along with them. Privacy is invaded and people try to tell them how to live their lives. You end up not being your own person, but the internet’s person.”

These comments come as Hacker takes a break from Twitch streaming to focus on his personal life.

“Taking a break from streaming for quite a while. I don’t really feel to explain. A lot of personal stuff, on top of the unfortunate stuff that happens whilst streaming. Something always goes wrong. I might begin again, I might not,” he said.
