You Can Now Literally Bite The Head Off Your Least Favorite Billionaires
(TruthandLiberty.com) – A segment of America is angry at billionaires because of their wealth. Some have even turned to left-wing politicians to strip the ultra-rich of their wealth and redistribute it to people through government programs. Now, the group that created Lil Nas X’s “Satan Shoes” has returned to feed the anti-billionaire sentiment – literally. MSCHF created an “eat the rich” campaign, allowing consumers to buy a popsicle featuring a billionaire’s face. The company’s name is a vowel-less abbreviation for “mischief.”
So, if you want to take your frustrations out on Amazon owner Jeff Bezos, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Tesla chief Elon Musk, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, or Alibaba’s Jack Ma, you could pay $10 a pop to eat their face. The campaign was only active in select MSCHF ice cream trucks in New York City and Los Angeles from July 11-13.

MCHF’s chief revenue officer Daniel Greenberg said the campaign’s purpose was to start a conversation, and there were no plans to expand it. Many had fun with the campaign. Some said it was ironic that the organization was selling overpriced popsicles to end capitalism while profiting from the product. Others chimed in and said they were ultimately encouraging capitalism.
What do you think? Did the people who bought the popsicles know they were contributing to capitalism? Or were they simply hoping the saying “You are what you eat” holds true?
