Dan Bilzerian has posted a fairly angry video, hitting out at US war hero Dakota Meyer, who made comments about him following the Las Vegas massacre.
Bilzerian was in attendance at the at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on the crowd. The Instagram famous poker star filmed himself as he fled the scene, telling his followers he'd seen someone get shot and that he was off to get his gun and return to the scene.
He allegedly returned, but was told to leave by police who said there was nothing more he could do, he claimed to have helped get people to hospital.
Meyer slammed his actions, saying he should have stood his ground and not ran away while filming.
The veteran, who was awarded the Medal of Honour for his service in Afghanistan, 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 [sic] 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 [sic] not. People are dying, you're running away not helping them and pretending it's worthy of a video is disgusting."
Bilzerian didn't like the comments, firing back in a video posted to his Instagram story.
He said: "So I wake up this morning and the news is talking shit saying that some marine was saying that I was a pussy for running away and I should have stood my ground.
"So if we follow that retard's logic we'd probably have 600 dead if everyone stood their ground.
"He's there blogging about me while I'm there delivering 8,000 pounds of food and water in Vegas and going to hospital.
"Just to the be clear the first fucking thing I did after we dropped those two girls to hospital was I went and got my gun and I went straight fucking back there and I was there for three fucking hours."
While some people saw his point, others weren't best please with the fact he'd called someone who'd been awarded a medal of honour - the most prestigious you can get in the US Army - a "retard".
People labelled it as "low" and called him "trash".
