A couple weeks ago, resident TFM man-child Roger Dorn let his penny stock boner fly and wrote a piece (presumably while simultaneously reading about Steve Madden) on America’s newfound hero Jordan Belfort not keeping a dime from the movie he inspired, The Wolf of Wall Street. Rather, per his Facebook page, Belfort announced he’d be giving his royalties to his
dipshit investors victims as restitution. Guy’s just a giver.
To which the government, being the lobster-hating Boy Scouts that they are, called BS. Not only did a spokesman from the US Attorney’s Office claim that Belfort was dodging making his payments, but the source even went so far to say that real-life Leo skipped town all the way down under to Australia in order to circumvent the long arm of the government’s collection capabilities.
Just one itsy-bitsy problem: the government was full of it. Belfort called them out on this tidbit, and the Attorney’s Office had to apologize.
Even in 2014, the Wolf keeps piling up power moves. You know you’re powerful when you send the United States government apologizing for disrupting your tennis match. Belfort is trying to keep his nose clean, and dude still can’t go five minutes without the Feds getting off his yacht.
Not sure why, but would you like to know the most mind-blowing part of this story for me? Jordan Belfort, the Wolf himself, has a private Facebook page. He’s just like you, except, you know, a million times cooler.
