This post was made Tuesday‚ and it has been viewed more than 3 million times as of the writing. The video is called We got kicked off a cruise! It includes footage of the group asking rude questions to staff and interrupting a show with an apparent intent to be removed from the cruise. Insiders asked for comments from representatives of the NELK Boys‚ but they did not respond immediately. The only ones to have booked a 5-day cruise in order to get kicked off were we. Stephen Deleonardis‚ a NELK member‚ stated that we were only there one day. As he waits to board Celebrity Cruises' ship in Miami‚ Kyle Forgeard‚ cofounder of NELK‚ asks a member of staff if they have found drugs. Insider reached out to Celebrity Cruises for comment. Deleonardis is later filmed questioning a woman who appears to be part of the housekeeping team providing hot towels if they are jizz-rags. Then‚ Deleonardis asks another person‚ who seems to be an employee‚ whether they can book tuggies (a term used to describe masturbation). Later‚ Deleonardis can be seen with the others taking lewd pictures by a Christmas tree. Another scene shows a woman in background asking for help as they aren't turning off their cameras. A staff member approaches the group and tells them that she felt insulted at their behaviour. Later‚ the video shows them attending an event that featured a speech by the captain as well as a comedy show. During this time‚ Salim Sirur‚ a NELK member‚ can be heard heckling while others tell him to stop. It appears that security personnel removed him from the venue to receive applause from other guests. The woman identified as cruise ship security supervisor was then captured telling Sirur & Forgeard that she was wearing a camera to her body and would like to share it with law enforcement. No matter what you do‚ it is forbidden to behave onboard. She can hear them saying this before warning them that they might have to abandon the ship. Sirur‚ Forgeard and the director of the hotel were asked to film them. Although they were not asked to film the meeting‚ Sirur and Forgeard recorded audio of their being told to stop using rude language or disturbing other guests. According to NELKs' video‚ it was recommended that the group disembark from the ship in the following 15 minutes. Forgeard stated that the purpose of the trip was for him to have a good time with others. The whole thing is for an older crowd. We are going to try and take full advantage of these pranks to have some fun with people. Forgeard stated that you can just troll and make fun of them.
