On Saturday, Meyer, who is a Marine Sgt., posted a video challenging Bilzerian to a fist fight after Bilzerian had apparently been sharing Meyer’s wife’s phone number with his friends, according to the Daily Mail. Meyer is married to Bristol Palin.
Bilzerian did serve in the Navy but failed on numerous attempts to become a SEAL.
The feud started when Meyer called Bilzerian out for a Facebook video that showed him filming himself running away from the Las Vegas shooting, and where he talked about seeing a woman who had been shot in the head.
In Meyer’s post, he said it was “disgusting” that Bilzerian’s first thought was to document the tragedy on social media instead of helping the wounded.
In response, Bilzerian called Meyer a “retard”, and shared a video that showed him unsuccessfully begging police officers for a gun so he could take down the shooter. He said, “Some Marine was saying that I was a pussy for running away and that I should have stood my ground when the guy was shooting at me with a machine gun.”
“So, I mean if we follow that retard’s logic we’d probably have 600 dead if everyone stood their ground instead of running for cover.”
In the video, Meyer said that since their feud became public, it’s gone viral. He said that his wife Bristol, daughter of former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, had been receiving prank calls from Bilzerian’s friends.
Meyer didn’t mince words when he told Bilzerian in the video:
“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.’
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.”
In response to Bilzerian’s video where he begged officers for a gun, Bristol Palin said, “Bilzerian actually impeded the police work of Las Vegas officers. While the shooter rained bullets down on the crowd, Bilzerian showed the cop his carry permit and asked for his weapon.”
“On what planet would a police officer give a random stranger his weapon… during an active shooter scenario?”
She also slammed Bilzerian for not stopping to help the wounded, and said, “In Bilzerian’s mind, everyone should know who he is because he lives online and desperately wants the world to see him as a hero. But, when the moment arose, he wasn’t prepared.”
‘When someone was killed right before his eyes, his immediate response was to promote himself. This is, of course, the exact opposite of the way real men act during a tragedy.”
In a final parting comment, Bristol Palin said, “The nation needs more people willing to lay down their lives for others… not more men impotently striking a pose in front of a cell phone.”
