'Rich Kids Of The UK' Is An Instagram Account That Is As Grim As It Sounds
'Rich kids' Instagram accounts seem to be rather popular across social media, but for the most part they get the attention they crave because people despise them.
For those who don't know of them, they're a place were spoiled kids, swimming in daddy's money, like to remind others that they're not so fortunate to be born into money.
There's now a 'Rich Kids of the UK' account with over 240,000 followers, who like to poke fun at 'peasants'.
Now, usually I'd pass over this kind of thing, giving it a 'pfft' and a head shake filled with derision, but the word 'peasant' fucking irritates me. Its historical definition is someone of low social status, usually a farmer. However, for some reason, its transformed into a something used by kids fed by the silver spoon to appropriate others who aren't as well off as them. It's a disgusting word. Just because someone isn't born into wealth, doesn't make them any less of a man or woman than you.
Among that shite is the usual tosh, like kids stood next to a car given to them for their birthday, jewelry, inexplicably expensive clothing and champagne. Just general flaunting of wealth that wouldn't be out of place on Kim Kardashian's Instagram account, basically.
In one picture, a receipt shows £294146 in someone's bank account, which is the equivalent of 1176584 Freddos, 330501 Greggs' sausage rolls, and around 98048 pints of lager (if you're not in London).
That kind of money is something the majority of us can't even dream of having at our finger tips. To put it in perspective, if we were to put away £50 a month, saving £600 a year, it'd take 490 years to save up nearly three million pounds.
There's also an image of a diamond ring with the caption 'daddy sure knows how to apologise'. Weird that, dads are usually too stubborn to say sorry.
With all this being said, if you want to lend some of us a tenner, you're more than welcome to.
