While some netizens said that “MBS is rice made out of gold", and the luxury hotel is making a “daylight robbery”, some noted that the price is no issue to the TikToker.

The handle, with almost 11,000 followers, holds true to its name as the account is a means where the user flaunts his wealth. 

The TikToker would often post videos showing thick wads of cash such as showing a paper bag containing stacks of $100 notes, and money scattered all over a bed, or videos of the high life such as shopping for branded watches and staycations at luxury hotels.
