Lads who went viral in Ibiza after ‘Toad’ hair do hit out at trolls
| Last updated
One of the guys from the viral Ibiza lads photo has responded after they got 'violated on Twitter'.
It's a classic case of always being prepared for anything you post on a public social media account to end up being shared more widely - or in Cartz30's case, be seen over 10 million times, retweeted over 800 times and commented on over 500.
Cartz uploaded a photograph of him and three mates on a recent lads trip to Ibiza, sharing an image of the group at Ibiza Rocks on X - formerly known as Twitter.
It didn't take long for the comments to rain in - with a lot of focus being on his pal with a rather peculiar haircut - and Cartz has since responded to the attention.
No element of the lads' outfits or appearances went unscathed, with users raining in on the image - captioned, 'Last night was eventful to say the least' - in stitches.
One X user said: "Wee man's got his suitcase strapped to him after been advised not to leave valuables in the hotel room."
"Theo baker and dale winton on the left. Two weird side characters from Skyrim on the right," a second added.
A third wrote: "The little fella on the right, did his mum cut his hair with a knife and fork?"
Some compared the lad on the far right to Grumio from Plebs and others to Toad from Mario Kart.
And a final resolved: "Nah wait why are y’all getting roasted so hard."
Thankfully, Cartz gave as good as he got back in the comments, taking to X in an update on 19 September with another image of his friend with the 'Toad' haircut.
"Considering you all love the haircut so much, have another this one's called 'nooo amigo'," the post reads.
Cartz later added a photograph of his mate curled up lying in his suitcase with the caption: "When you're getting violated on Twitter so you try to pack your self away."
One X user took to the comments in support of the lads, stating: "A legend of a reply," while another wrote: "Bro f**k the haters, you out in Ibiza."
"Living our best lives whilst there sat at home watching us live it," Cartz responded.
However, one Karen couldn't help but go in on Cartz and his mates.
They commented: "With all due respect, ibiza isn't living your best life. Been there plenty of times and the place is actually a s**t hole.
"Your 'trading' lifestyle doesn't suit your holidaying destinations. The fact that I can guarantee not one of you took a single drug makes the trip pointless."
Well, Cartz seemed to agree, with him responding: "Totally agreed, mate. ibiza was a s**t hole. I couldn't believe how bad it actually was.
"We walked to the strip on one of the nights, saw the state of it and left, that being said we definitely made the most of what we had in which case we was living our best life, as for the trading lifestyle I've never made out to be making s**t loads off money or living any type of lifestyle, it gets me by comfortably, that's enough for me twitter was just for me to network with other traders until all this."
The Ibiza lad resolved in several follow-up tweets: "The egos was always there, now we just got the fame to go with it.
"[...] When do the brand deals and club invites start? Asking for a friend.
"[...] Crazy how serious some of use take life its us getting violated and we seem to be the only ones seeing the fun in it
"[...] If you [sic]havnt ended up on the news you didn't do ibiza like us."
And here ends the lesson on why you should probably set your social media profiles to private.
