Bristol Palin's Husband Slams Dan Bilzerian for Running Away During Las Vegas Shooting

Bristol Palin's Husband Slams Dan Bilzerian for Running Away During Las Vegas Shooting

Bristol Palin‘s husband is calling out Dan Bilzerian for the way he reacted during the Las Vegas shooting over the weekend.

Dakota Meyer – the Medal of Honor recipient and Marine Corps veteran – took to Instagram to slam the 36-year-old poker player and social media star for “running away” in a video Dan posted during the shooting at the country music festival.

“This is why children shouldn’t classify heroes by their followers or their photos. @danbilzerian this is what kills me about people like you,” Dakota wrote. “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.”

Dan – who is a former Navy SEAL trainee – shared with People that he took a shooting victim to the hospital before returning the scene with his own gun, but the situation was under control by law enforcement at that time.

    Really? Really? This is what we do during a tragedy? We say that ppl shouldn’t run away from being assaulted with gun fire? He deserves Bristol and they both should go away. Do i think Dan is an idiot? YES. Do i think Dan shouldn’t have been on Instagram? YES! But to tell him and victims like him to not go to safety but to stand there? What would Dakota have done? Not a damn thing but get shot. Leave those who were there alone. Regardless of the fact they are victims. And Dakota is an ass

    Sorry, I can’t take someone who married Bristol seriously. Her and her mother are only for helping themselves not others.

    I pray I am never in a situation like this, but I will not shame those who ran. It’s fright or flight; you either run scared or stay to help others. Neither should be shamed. Not everyone can handle blood and are more of a problem than help. Shame on whoever this guy is for slamming someone caught in a tragedy. We all don’t have Marine training, bro, therefore we all don’t have your mentality. Stop being a jerk.

    The only thing he could have done that would be more stupid is blame the people who got shot for not being bullet-proof.

    thank you. Like what should a human being do when bullets are raining?

  • skye3245

    All sizzle and no steak.

    Stop filming maybe? Guess you missed the point of the story

    I didn’t miss the “point”. His point was to come at someone with millions of followers to gain some “fame”. This was a person on Social Media saying what he was going thru. He was not the only person doing so. He was not the only person running from the bullets who posted this incident. Its where most of the “shots ringing out” footage came from that we are seeing on the news. So why not come at a teenager screaming on their snapchat? Why not a guy running and showing footage of being shot? Why not any of the other millions of ppl who did the same and thinking they were going to die so they were getting footage screaming to their loved ones? Because Dan is a instagram user with millions of followers who will have ppl speaking on this. Otherwise the only thing you know about this guy is he’s married to Bristol Palin and barely wanted to marry her before baby and has a slightly questionable military history that the Palins were willing to use to get him to go away before letting him marry into the family. Instead f judging ppl who went thru this incident, regardless of someones past, let them be. Dan could have done alot in his life, which he will atone for, but judging another human being for something he has not gone thru is ignorant. Especially when a man was raining down gun fire. Because there was nothing this Dakota guy could have down or anything intelligent he could have done. Because if he would have brandished a fire arm he would have made it worse not better for police and other victims. So i got the “point” he had none

    Dan Bilzerian has Navy SEAL training. He touts himself as this big badass on social media, but failed when he had his chance to step up and help. THAT is why he is getting dragged. Look up who he is first, then re-read this article. Yeah, I feel bad that he was part of the tragedy in LV, but that doesn’t change the fact that he is a POS in normal, day-to-day life. The Palin’s suck too, but that is beside my point.

    Good description of Dakota Meyer!

  • scotpenob

    Thanks Biff.

    I get that he is a liar and poser. But this tragedy was different context. I feel he just should leave this alone and maybe focus on when Dan does something else. Because alot of ppl filmed and alot ran away. Nothing you can do from a gun men firing from 32 floors up regardless of training with thousands around you in panic
