LONDON’S rich kids have set up their own risky Instagram and Facebook account where they refer to their 27,000 followers – who are mostly amused ‘normal’ people as peasants.
One gent even posted a photo of himself rubbing his suede shoe with a 50 pound note with the tagline “when a peasant touches your shoes”.
A thread of images showing flashy transport such as private helicopters and sports cars were posted alongside a caption “back to uni” or “boarding school”.
Photos of receipts are also a popular image to share with commenters jokingly claim that a bill of more than £2,500 was a “small night out”.
Although the glam lifestyle appears to be one of luxury – which it certainly is – the young adults do appear to give up something – their freedom.
Wadges of cash that appear to total at least £1,000 are repeatedly posted with comments such as “why I come home’ and ‘thanks for the pocket money”.
Birthday cars, piles of limited edition watches and gold bottles of champage half the size of a person are all boasted on the pages too.
But some of the users do seem to have a strong disliking for “peasants”.
An image of people standing outside a Primark is captioned “the peasants lining up to go in primark” and another showing a Molotov cocktail bottle on fire says “to throw on peasants”.
