Let me just go ahead and get this out of the way right now:
I hate myself for even writing about this. I hate that I’m giving these guys attention, because that’s exactly what they wanted. But sometimes, those are the sacrifices you have to make when a good story comes along.
So here we go.
Twin Nashville Instagram “influencers” Jacob and Jared Baez were arrested this weekend after stiffing Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row on Lower Broadway on an almost $18,000 bar tab.
According to WSMV, the brothers’ tab came out to $17,878.74, and when police arrived, the twins told officers that they had no way of paying it.
The aspiring Instagram “influencers” had posted a call-out on their accounts inviting their followers to attend a birthday celebration for the pair.
In a call with Scoop: Nashville, the twins stated that the event was hosted by Kindom Capital Elites, which turns out to be a company set up by the brothers themselves that isn’t registered with the state or the IRS.
The brothers also said that they were “going to be legends” for what they did, and that they would be “all over the news” before stating that the stunt would get them verified on Instagram.
Just when I think I couldn’t hate myself for writing about these guys any more than I already do…
The twins said that they “spent $40,000 in 3 days downtown” and that “what was L.A. is now Nashville,” whatever that means.
“We just turned Nashville into the new L.A. – this weekend they wasn’t prepared, they didn’t know what was up, legit we proved our point in Nashville.
You gotta be prepared, because if you’re not prepared for us to come and drop forty G’s on two tables.”
I mean, that sounds great and all (I guess, because I don’t even really know what it means) but when you drop “forty G’s” and don’t pay your tab it doesn’t really mean shit to the people that you’re stiffing.
Jacob and Jared were ultimately booked into the Metro Nashville jail for felony (yeah, FELONY) theft of services, and were released after each posting a $5,000 bond.
Honestly, I don’t even know what else to say about this other than, I really hate the internet for making stupid people famous.
