‘Shark Tank’ star defends controversial tweet: ‘Get over it’

"Shark Tank" host Kevin O'Leary defends a tweet in which he advocates for achieving success at all costs. Then, CNN's Don Lemon and Kaitlan Collins ask him about surging retail sales and the pressure it puts on the Federal Reserve. #CNN #News


    1. @Lisa McLean Fact is two people died in 2019 so obviously arithmetic is not your strong suit but O’Leary was a passenger sitting astern and the boat that was hit sat with lights off in complete darkness. The video of the crash happening in real time is compelling evidence but probably doesn’t jibe with your eyewitness account of the events. 🙄

    2. @W
      Too bad very few still take accusations against Trump seriously anymore. But I guess that’s what happens when one cries wolf since 2016.


  1. Everyone’s definition of success is different.

    Hes about money. That’s where his self worth comes from.

    Sad but legitimate.

    1. Actually, that’s how YOU define his success. He probably defines success in relation to his childhood loss of his father, maybe his fitness, his work ethic, or his appearance.

  2. That is a very selfish message from Mr.wonderful. Plenty of people have achieved greater success than him while remaining grounded and without running over people you are supposed to care about.

  3. Ironic how he says: Don’t like it? Tthen go work for someone” with such disdain And disgust in his tone as if you’re worthless or leess than for doing so. How does he make his wealth? Does he physically make his own products or are people employed by him to ass3mble those products. Watch how quickly his tough guy facade would crumble if people stopped working for him and nobody ever bought another product by him ever again.

  4. He said something about fitting into an “entrepreneur mold”. There is no mold. Anyone, anywhere all day long is an entrepreneur. Youtube alone has a million different types of entrepreneurs. He’s talking old school brick and mortar business owners possibly. That was so 20 years ago.

  5. I can imagine him regretting his words by the time he is bedridden, old and decrepit. He’ll get around but unfortunately it’s too late.

  6. A man can be rich in gold, and poor in spirit. With the money he has, he could help so many people, but no, he’ll buy a watch.
    Yep, that’s who I want my kids to be like…..😒

  7. “The longer I live, the more often that question gets into my brain, the deeper I go in my thoughts and guesses about why the Almighty allowed humans to have devilish desires of envy, greed and aggression. Everything changes, only a man and his thinking remain unchanged: he’s just as greedy, evil, heartless and restless as before!”  

    — Anton Kalashnikov, letter to Patriarch Kirill, December 2013.

  8. And that’s why as a consumer we can’t hardly buy anything without dealing with a crook on the other end of the deal.
    They will do anything to get ahead at the expense of others.

    1. And approximately 1 (one) out of every 5 (five) CEOS are actually psychopaths. Just ask and explore Dr. Ramani’s videos.

  9. Such a weird thing to say. You lose your family to get more money, and that is somehow for the sake of your family?

    Not everyone needs to be multimillionaires to be “free” and successful.

    Kevin’s great in shark tank, but he has some really bad takes outside of the show

  10. “Family, religion, friendship. These are the three demons you must slay if you wish to succeed in business.” – Monty Burns

  11. This is literally a Mr. Burns moment. “Family, Religion, Friendship these are the three demons you must slay if you wish to achieve success in business”. 😂😂😂

  12. Kevin O’Leary is absolutely right in his statement. You need to sacrifice things like time with family to achieve freedom and success in the long-term.
