This Instagram Account Is Showing Us How Mexico’s Rich Kids Really Live
The mirreyes (a term meaning “my kings”) are giving new life to the whole “Rich Kids of Instagram” movement. These heirs to the thrones of Mexico’s wealthiest families have garnered disdain from the mainstream media in Mexico for the ways they ostentatiously flaunt their wealth: champagne-fueled parties, revving up their luxury sports cars and snapping away during exotic vacations. @RichKidsofMexicoCity (RKOMC) is keeping track of it all…
The easiest way to become a mirrey? Pop a bottle into your pool.
Mirreyes are notorious for showing off their wealth on social media. One Mexican rich kid even died while doing so. Twenty-nine-year-old Jorge Alberto López Amores asked his friends to film him on video while jumping off a yacht. But, as reported in the Daily Mail, he was swallowed by the sea and never found again.
Dogs are for #PoorPeople.
While us plebeians over here have to be content with dogs, cats or iguanas, mirreyes and fresas get to have pet JAGUARS.
And when a pet jaguar won’t do, just switch to the other kind.
The RKOMC Instagram account is littered with photos of expensive cars including Ferraris, Audis, Land Rovers and BMWs in ostentatious colors like red and naranja.
No Payless flats here! Only #HighEndDesigners for these pedicured toes.
Shopping for these #RichKids means strolling away with a haul of luxury shoes, jewelry and more from Giuseppe Zanotti (if the person above could even spell it correctly, jeez ?), Hermès and Gucci you can only buy after living off tortillas for months.
Just chillin’ on a little getaway, LOL!
A bros’ trip for mirreyes includes off-roading next to a freaking waterfall in luxury Jeeps. YOU CANNOT MAKE THIS STUFF UP.
Just need a little extra spending cash for that exotic foreign trip…
Are you ? ? ? yet over how much dough these kids/teens/twenty-somethings get to spend? Most of these high-rollers are the offspring of Mexico’s elite politicians, businessmen and high society. In other words, not too many of them are self-made millionaires.
Flying high like a G-6.
#RKOMC are not surfing through Kayak.com for deals on spring break travels (that’s for commoners). Leave it to them to jet off to getaways in ACTUAL jets.
To make yourself feel better as you cry into your cheap Corona beer instead of downing a bottle of Don Perignon, these #RichKids’ days might be numbered now that the Mexican peso is struggling against the U.S. dollar. Either way, don’t expect these Insta posts to go blank anytime soon. You know they’ll be #YOLOing it up for a while.
