At this morning’s Dallas City Council meeting a Dallas resident decided to perform a rap about vaccinations and ended by telling the city council members to “follow my IG”.

The extremely bizarre live music performance (if it counts as music) was done by Alex Stein, a one-time reality TV show villain on “The Glass House” in 2012 and graduate of Highland Park High School.
Alex once wanted to be the “most epic villain in reality tv history”. Now, it appears he wants to make a name by trolling the Dallas City Council and other local government meetings for the benefit of his 16,000+ Instagram followers and/or to single-handedly destroy humanity’s desire to watch live music performances – we’re not really sure which to be honest.
Here’s the full video from his Instagram if you really want to watch it:
Some have called the song a “banger” and said it “slaps” but most others on Twitter had a far different reaction to the performance, here are some of those reactions.

Of course if you enjoyed the performance you should follow “Primetime Stein” as he calls himself on IG, Twitter, or wherever you get your daily dose of horrible things that make you yearn for the end of time itself.
