A TikTok user who appears to be in a UK prison has sparked outrage after showing off his cell. You can see the video here:
The unnamed inmate, who posted under the name @hmpunknown, shared a clip of his cell showing off a TV, speaker system, landline phone, air humidifier and a leather seat beside his bed.
Posting the clip, he wrote: “When ya prison cell lookin like a hotel room.”
The clip has since been viewed more than a million times, but many TikTok users have been left fuming over his boasting.
One person wrote: “they getting better lives inside than we get on the outside bruh.”
Another commented: “Jokes. How’s this punishment?”
A third person said: “Me, a single working mom of 3 who sleeps on the floor as I make sure my kids have everything, think I might break the law for a comfy bed.”
While someone else wrote: “Can’t believe I pay tax on this.”
However, others disagreed with one person replying: “oh right.. not too sure what hotels you have been going to mate.”
And another writing: “Dunno, aint ever stayed in any hotel that locks the doors at night?”
It’s unclear which prison the TikTok user is in, or why he is inside, but it appears he's four years into a seven year sentence as his TikTok bio reads: "2018-2025" alongside a lock emoji.
LADbible contacted the Ministry of Justice and a Prison Service spokesperson said: “We work closely with TikTok to remove content as quickly as possible and anyone found in possession of a phone will face extra time behind bars.”
The man was incarcerated at the Dalton Crespo Prison, in Campos dos Goytacazes, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he shared clips of his routine including him making a toasted sandwich.
But after officials at the Secretary of State for Penitentiary Administration (SEAP) found his uploads they ordered his cell to be searched and prison staff discovered 17 mobile phones, 13 sim cards and a small amount of drugs.
The unnamed detainee was then moved to a maximum security prison.
