Marine Medal of Honor winner challenges Dan Bilzerian to a FIGHT to settle row over Las Vegas shooting ‘like men’

28

A MEDAL of Honor war hero has challenged “King of Instagram” Dan Bilzerian for a fight amid a spat over how the social media star reacted to the Las Vegas massacre.

Dakota Meyer, the husband of Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol, had slammed Bilzerian’s video showing which showed him fleeing the shooting.

Bilzerian live streamed the clip on Facebook, telling fans that he had just seen a woman get shot in the face.

But Meyer said it was “disgusting” that Bilzerian’s first thought was to document the tragedy on social media instead of helping the injured.

Bilzerian then hit back, sharing a video showed him unsuccessfully begging cops for a gun so that he could take out the shooter.

He then dubbed Meyer a “retard” for posting his criticism online.

The war of words became personal when Meyer accused Bilzerian of passing on his wife’s number and that he had been receiving prank calls.

Making the allegations, Meyer said: ‘So wake up this morning and I gotta tell you Dan.

“You wanted to get my attention? You got it baby, you got it. Here it is.

“It’s one thing you talk about me all day, I don’t care. But here’s the problem. My purpose in life is family.

“You wanna bring my family in this, you wanna put my wife in danger by putting her phone number out to people?

“You got your little friends trying to FaceTime her?

“My life’s not a game and it’s not entertainment either so what I will tell you is, my family’s purpose is my purpose and now you’re my mission.”

Staring menacingly into the camera, Meyer, added: ‘This ain’t an option.

“You just need to tell me when and where and if not we’ll be somewhere together, I’m sure.

‘Why don’t we handle this like men? You got it? You got it, Dan? I’m waiting.”

Bilzerian did not immediately respond to his threat.

In his video he is filmed begging a cop for his gun during the Las Vegas massacre – and is told to “get the f*** away”.

Pro gambler Bilzerian, best known for posting snaps of him with a harem of scantily clad women, was criticised for allegedly running from the carnage without helping the injured.

As many as 59 people were killed and more than 500 injured when warped killer Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire on a music concert from the window of his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay resort.

But new footage emerged apparently showing the muscled social media star running towards the gunfire.

He is seen ducking behind a concrete bollard while a hail of assault gunfire rains down on the crowd.

But the millionaire’s heroics are short-lived.

Bilzerian, 36, had asked him for a weapon to try to fend off the attacker — even showing his gun licence.

The officer responds: “No, get the f*** away from me right now.

“I don’t know who the f*** you are”, he screams, adding: “You know better than that.”

Original footage posted by Bilzerian Sunday night’s gun horror appears to show him running from the crowd.

He later insisted he was “heading back” to the bloodbath after seeing a girl get “shot in the face right next to me”.

Dakota Meyer, the husband of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol, had earlier slammed Bilzerian for fleeing the scene.

The decorated veteran, who served in Afghanistan as part of the US Marine Corps, wrote on Instagram: “This is why children shouldn’t classify heroes by their followers or their photos.

“@danbilzerian this is what kills me about people like you. 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.”
