Peter Brant II, Teen Son Of Billionaire, Jokes About ‘Contingency Plan’ To Kill Obama And Posts It On Instagram

The Huffington Post  |  By 

As Americans across the country reacted to news about President Barack Obama’s reelection, one young member of the 1 percent took to Instagram to make a very public, very unwise joke.

It all started when Peter Brant II, the 18-year-old son of publishing mogul Peter Brant Sr. and supermodel Stephanie Seymour, began exchanging mocking text messages with friend Andrew Warren, Jezebel reports.

Warren, whose location on Twitter is listed as “NYC/HAMPTONS,” joked that the election results were going to make him “poor,” to which Brant replied, “I have a contingency plan. Kill Obama hahaha.” The remark was then followed by a joke about women’s rights.

Not wishing this witty exchange to remain just between the two friends, Brant took a screenshot and posted it to his Instagram. Comments were mixed, with someone feeling the joke was hilarious, and others feeling very much the opposite.

Warren took to Twitter to defend himself on Wednesday.

It’s the Rich Kids of Instagram, Norwegian Royals edition.

The 15-year-old son of Norway’s Crown Princess Mette-Marit has been sharing personal photos — 133 in all — of family holidays and other events on Instagram,potentially putting the royal family at risk, according to security blog Naked Security.

The teenager, Marius Borg Høiby, is the princess’ son from a prior relationship. The photos include GPS information that could reveal the location of the family.

According to the popular Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gangphotos taken on Marius’ phone through the popular mobile app have been available online. The photos have since been taken down.

“This has major significance for the security around the royals,” said Petter Gottschalk, a professor at the business school Handelshøyskolen BI, in an interview with both VG and Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) on Wednesday. “This is a security scandal, and I’m surprised that this could be so open. The royal staff and the royal police escorts should have been aware of this.”

The royal couple took the significant step of writing a letter to the paper, criticizing editors for a “speculative” story that overstated the danger.

“We react strongly that you are exposing our child in this manner. For us, it’s very important to shield our children against an undsciplined public spotlight because we believe it can be a heavy burden and damaging. All children have a right to be protected against that,” the princess and husband Crown Prince Haakon wrote. Read the rest of this entry »
