An in-depth analysis of "Boonk" from "Boonk Gang" by Shiv

Building a social media empire of over five million people is an extraordinary accomplishment that few people in this world can claim. Doing this all off stealing trays of donuts and walking behind the counters of McDonalds is unheard of. Yet this is exactly the story of how a man named “Boonk” became a social media influencer and established an infamous petty crime syndicate known as “Boonk Gang”, becoming the group’s de facto leader. Boonk has changed the way people look at social media, highlighting the dark side of modern social media by putting upfront the lengths and risk people take to make it big online. Boonk has been arrested numerous times and been in huge amounts of controversies for his actions. In the eyes of many he is a desperate wannabe, while in others he is a hilarious comedian, even role model. It can be estimated that Boonk has made serval thousands of dollars from social media, with advertisements, promotions, and even his own rap music. Yet as Boonk’s latest appearance on the podcast “No Jumper”, hosted by Adam 22, shows how Boonk has had adverse side effects to his fame and prosperity. Boonk explains in the podcast about how he abuses narcotics, and about how he lives for today, not tomorrow. Boonk also details about how he deals with anxiety and has to see a psychiatrist weekly. Boonks story showcase the ups and downs of social media, how it can be used to promote yourself not only for good, but also for bad. How it can make a person rich but can steal all from the mentality. Boonks transformation from a young kid, to a face tatted, drug consuming, criminal is an extremely sad situation. Yet his attempts to get sober and fix his act show that there is still hope, and we all pray this is case.
