Jeromie Williams Eats The Internet For Breakfast
See that guy up there? The one with the red flower standing next to the bride? You’re about to learn a lot about him.
Millions of Facebook users were fooled into sharing a photoshopped picture posted last week by Nolan Daniels claiming he had won over $580,000,000 in the Powerball lottery and was giving away $1,000,000 to a random person who shared the photo, but now one member of the Daniels family is shedding light on the hoaxer, and it’s not pretty.
Derek Daniels, the brother of the now infamous Nolan Daniels spoke with Jeromie Williams Eats The Internet For Breakfast and painted a picture of Nolan as “the kind of man that only thinks about himself.”
“He is a troller and I think he needs some attention to make himself feel better about himself,” said Derek Daniels about his brother Nolan.
The relationship the two share is something you might find turning the pages of a tabloid, browsing Perez Hilton or getting a quick lunch break celebrity dish session from TMZ. The two brothers have been estranged ever since Derek says that Nolan dated his ex longtime girlfriend in secret for eleven months behind his back.
We weren’t kidding about this story getting juicy.
The recent event was him dating my ex-girlfriend of 3+ years in secret for about eleven months. We have brother rules about respect and not walking where the other has walked before. We called it the 4 D’s – the Daniels Don’t Double Dip.
If he asked me face to face in the beginning, I would have been upset, but I would have swallowed hard and gotten over it. I am more upset with the fact that he lied to my face when I asked him many times and even more upset that every weekend story, hiking story, girls he banged stories and lunch stories were all made up for almost a year.
The dishonesty was hurtful to say the least … I have chosen to keep him out of my life. I have cleaned up enough of his messes. My moral compass does not bend that way.
Where this gets worse, and it does get worse, is the fact that Nolan Daniels now has a Facebook inbox that is so full of heartfelt messages from people in difficult circumstances ranging from sickness, to deaths in the family, to simply trying to provide for one’s family, that he can’t even receive any more Facebook messages.
Derek had some thoughts about that one too.
I did not see [the fake photo] at first for we are blocked from each other’s page on Facebook. I got a lot of calls, emails, text messages and Facebook messages about it though.
People at the office talked about it. I rolled my eyes at first, because it was an obvious fake. When I learned that people were sending sad stories about their life struggles, recent loss of loved ones, hurricane Sandy, loss of their home, illness and things of that nature to Nolan in [Facebook] messages, then I thought he would kill the post.
Why? Even though it is fake, most people do not pay attention to that, we are in the worst economy in eighty years, and it’s the holiday season. The thought of someone sharing winning restores faith in humanity. Sharing luck by paying forward luck. That’s sainthood.
Nice thought, but it was a joke. People hang on to the tiniest threads of hope nowadays.
The photo currently has over 2,000,000 shares and over 30,000 comments on Facebook, and given that Nolan Daniels nor Facebook are returning anyone’s calls about this, it looks like the photo is here to stay at least for now.
What do you think? Is this a harmless prank? Should people have known better? Or has Nolan Daniels just won the douche bag for life award? Let us know in the comments below.
