A little boy in Mississippi is a millionaire after his Instagram account garnered more than 50,000 followers after a tweet in which he called his girlfriend a “fat b**tch” earned the attention of ESPN and the rest of the world.
Dylan Davis, 16, posted a photo of himself with a white towel on the hood of his truck with the caption, “Just got my towel.”
In the photo, Davis is wearing a shirt that says, “Lose weight fast.”
In his first tweet since the photo went viral, Davis wrote, “It feels great to be famous, right?”
In the next 24 hours, Davis’ Instagram account gained more than 250,000 likes and more than 11 million likes in the days following his tweet.
The tweet was shared more than 2,700 times and Davis had more than 4,000 Instagram followers at the time.
“I didn’t know it was going to go viral,” Davis told ABC News.
“It was definitely a little bit of a surprise.”
The photo was the second time that Davis has been on the news for his controversial tweet, which has caused controversy in the sports world.
Davis’ first Twitter post in February caused controversy after he criticized former Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson and the NFL Players Association, calling him “stupid” and “a moron.”
The Twitter account has since been deleted.
Davis said he was inspired to post the photo after reading an article about how fat people are being bullied in sports.
He said he started looking into how many celebrities are overweight or obese, which led him to the idea of creating his own Instagram account.
“The Instagram was a way to find out where everybody was at and see what people were doing,” he said.
“I just thought that it was really cool that people were getting it.”
Dylan, who lives in Memphis, Mississippi, said he has a job and bills his mom for the expenses, and has started a fundraising campaign to pay for the bills.
The hashtag #dylan_Davis is trending on Twitter.
In his second post, Davis asked people to donate $1,000 for his mom to help with the bills and other expenses.
The next day, he posted another photo of him with a towel, asking for donations.
The money from the $1 million donation will go to help support his mom.
Davis said he is going to try to raise $3,000 to get a new laptop for his family.
