Just when it seems like this year couldn’t get any more disturbing and insane, 2020 delivers yet another shocking twist: Dan Bilzerian, a walking Napoleon Complex with 31 million Instagram followers, is literate. Yes, Dan Bilzerian, the Pope for BangBros subscribers, is writing a book and is offering $5,000 to whoever can think of the best name for it.

A short man who clearly isn’t overcompensating for anything, the 39-year-old Bilzerian has become the self-proclaimed “King of Instagram,” thanks to a page stocked with naked women, machine guns and various combinations of the two. Bilzerian — supported by a trust fund established by his dad, a felonious corporate raider—first entered the public consciousness during the 2013 World Series of Poker, when a gif of a woman stroking his beard went viral. Since then, Bilzerian has devoted his life to the kind of gaudy, performative excess of a man who couldn’t understand The Wolf of Wall Street. Still, to a certain demographic (i.e. PIKE brothers and Tampa Bay club promoters), Bilzerian is the alpha-est alpha male, his tacky, toxic masculinity seeming like something worth aspiring to.

At the very least, his autobiography will be eventful. After all, this is a man who has allegedly kicked a woman in the face at Art Basel in 2014, been arrested on bomb-making charges making bombs and thrown a porn star off of a roof and broke her foot during a Hustler’s photo shoot; recently, Bilzerian has honorably admitted that he no longer likes to pay for sex. Most famously, Bilzerian live-vlogged the 2017 Las Vegas shooting. In a moment of mush-brained bravado, Bilzerian begs a cop for a gun so he can save the day. “No,” the cop responds, “get the fuck away from me now. I don’t know who you are.”
