People Are Roasting Brooklyn Beckham For Implying That His Career As A Chef Helped Him Buy His $1.2 Million Sports Car
So, there’s this guy named Daniel Mac who has almost 13 million followers on TikTok. His whole thing is he goes up to random people in super-fancy cars and asks them what they do for a living. Usually, they answer shit like, “I show my ass on social media” or “I’m the CEO of a company that’s probably destroying the Earth.” Last week, Daniel was on Rodeo Drive and approached Brooklyn Beckham, who was driving a $1.2 million McLaren P1. In response to the question, “What do you do for a living?”, Brooklyn answered, “I’m a chef.” Now Buzzfeed reports that the 23-year-old son of Victoria and David Beckham is getting roasted for implying that he bought his car using his earnings as a chef. This is kind of like me claiming that I paid for my entire college education with the money I made as a part-time teenage ice cream scooper. LIES!
Daniel Mac, who claims that his encounter with Brooklyn was totally random, was immediately skeptical of Brooklyn’s answer. He followed up with, “Really? Are you like the best chef in the world?” Brooklyn laughed, shrugged, and replied, “Trying to be.” Daniel asked Brooklyn if he had any advice for people starting their careers, and he answered, “Just follow your passion. Whatever makes you happy! Just keep doing it.” Luckily for Brooklyn, his passion is being born into the Beckham family (net worth $450 million), and marrying heiress Nicola Peltz, whose family is worth $1.7 billion. Here’s the TikTok:
The comments ate Brooklyn alive and Buzzfeed compiled some of the highlights:
“Born into a multimillionaire family and now married a billionaires’s daughter. But he’s a chef!!” one person wrote. Another echoed: “Not him pretending being a chef got him that car….. Brooklyn, please.”
“He’s a chef, I’m crying,” another comment read. Someone else wrote: “Chef (crying laughing emojis) he meant to say daddy’s money.”
“He didn’t pay that from being a chef lol,” another person remarked. One more added: “‘What do you do for a living?’ Born to Victoria and David Beckham”
“‘My dad is a former footballer and my mum was a spice girl.. chef, [I mean] I’m a chef,’” one user joked. Another sarcastically quipped: “I think this guy could go places, started with nothing, no silver spoon, no wealthy parents, nothing. You go kid!”
Others referenced how many different careers Brooklyn had tried so far, with one person writing: “One feature on Vogue online making pasta that his parents bought and he’s a chef (crying laughing emoji) last year he was a ‘photographer.’”
Before Brooklyn was getting shit for having his own cooking show without knowing how to cook, he was getting shit for publishing a book of photography without knowing how to take pictures. But, in a recent interview with Variety, Brooklyn says his other career false starts (soccer, modeling, photography) were just “hobbies.” He says it took him “a little later in my life,” but he discovered that cooking is actually his true passion:
“I’m almost 100% self-taught,” he says. “Ever since the start of quarantine, I’ve done it every single day, and it’s the one thing I’ve found that takes my mind off of anything I’m thinking about.”
Wait. So if we’ve done something every single day since the beginning of the pandemic, we can make it into our job? Watch out world, my new career is getting stoned and watching Below Deck!
