When he tried, the platform canceled his article for not complying with the food policy, but in the process he received offers of up to 100,000 dollars ; This gave him the idea of keeping it in a resin bucket to sell as a "souvenir."

What began as a simple doubt ended in a reward, as Rylee was interviewed by various media in the country. On channel 9 News , he commented that he preferred to save it and publish it on the social network.
