Twitter is going IN on millionaires who spent hundreds of thousands on Mega Millions lottery tickets hoping to cash in on the $1.2 billion jackpot tonight. It's the second-largest jackpot in the game's history.
Raising Cane's co-CEO AJ Kumaran bought another $100,000 worth of Mega Millions lottery tickets after losing $100,000 on last week's lottery drawing.
Kumaran said if he wins he plans to split the $1.2 billion jackpot with his employees.
"We're all just excited, waiting and crossing our fingers for a win," Kumaran told The Washington Post.
But Twitter says Kumaran should have split that $200,000 with his employees since his chances of winning the lottery are slim to none.
Also facing backlash on Twitter is Pierre "P" Thomas, CEO of Atlanta-based Quality Control Records, who caught flack for buying $10,000 worth of Mega Millions tickets.
His followers have been dragging him all day for dropping $10K on worthless scraps of paper when he's already a millionaire.
"How the hell y'all mad at someone trying to hit the mega million for a billion?" he tweeted. "If y'all don't get the f--k on with that sh-t. Ain't nobody truing to be working every day like this [laughing crying emoji]."
Music producer DJ Khaled also incurred wrath from his followers after he displayed dozens of lottery tickets in a video.
"I hope you played, 'cause I played," he said in the video. "It's a billion dollars, I'ma at least try," he said, before giving Epic Records CEO Sylvia Rhone a fist bump.
The Mega Millions drawing will be held tonight, July 29, at 11:00 pm ET.
