Here’s the thing about the rich and powerful: They seem to think that they can do whatever they want, whenever they want, with whomever they want. For the most part, that’s pretty true. If you know anything about the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, or Carnegies, then you know how money controls power, and power controls everything.
Tech billionaire, Chris Sacca, who is a guest investor on Shark Tank just so happens to be one of those wealthy people who is just as well-known as the aforementioned names. It goes without saying that when Chris wants something, he will get it. Sacca was going about his regular Thursday night routine in New York City — you know, having expensive meals and spending big bucks on expensive liquors — when he showed up at the Richard Rogers Theatre with two tickets for the Hamilton show he had purchased on StubHub.
There was one small problem for Sacca: The tickets were deemed counterfeit. Being sold counterfeit tickets and being denied into a Broadway show isn’t a story in itself. The story is all about how Sacca reacted to being turned away.
From the NY Post:
But when a scanner determined the tickets were counterfeit, and he and wife Crystal English were turned away, Sacca began flapping his jaws.
“Do you know who I am?” Sacca thundered repeatedly, according to an eyewitness, a Broadway theater worker who requested anonymity.
“He was getting really angry at the ticket scanner,” the tipster said, and speaking in “a really condescending way. “He said he was a ‘shark’ on ‘Shark Tank’ and warned it wouldn’t be good if they couldn’t get in.”
But Sacca “wouldn’t take no for an answer,” the witness said. “He kept making a scene, saying how they had flown from California and it was his birthday.”
Honestly, I would have done the same damn thing. Shocked it didn’t work, actually..
