A video showing a young man, identified by Internet users as Alexandre Arnault, getting angry with a nightclub bouncer has gone viral. But a little verification allows us to affirm that the son of billionaire Bernard Arnault has nothing to do with it.
The video, posted on TikTok at the end of October, has been viewed more than 22 million times. We see a man, dressed in a purple shirt, getting angry with the bouncer of a nightclub who undoubtedly refused him access to the premises.
The man speaks in English with an accent that appears to be French, and says: “ You don’t even know who you’re angry with! “. “ Who ? », replies the bouncer. “ The richest family in Europe, do you know who my father is? », shouts his interlocutor before threatening him with “ take control » of the club by buying it.
