NBA star Jimmy Butler couldn’t believe how much it cost him to fill his gas tank

Jimmy Butler of all people shouldn’t be complaining about gas prices.

Despite having a net worth of $80 million, the NBA star was up in arms about how much it cost him to fuel his Rolls-Royce.

Clearly, he needed to vent about it, so he filmed his rant and uploaded it to social media.

Jimmy Butler, who is known for his ‘frugal’ ways, clearly wasn’t feeling California’s inflated gas prices.

The Miami Heat star even devised a plan.

“Man trying to get some of this gas back,” Butler told the person recording the video.

“You think if I go in there and tell them I put in the wrong gas, they gonna give me a refund?”

After sharing his ingenious refund idea, Butler then decided to share how much the refuel had cost him.

“$145 to fill up a Bugatti,” Butler exclaimed as he looked at the price on the pump.

As to be expected, this statement didn’t go down too well, with viewers quick to point out that Butler was driving a Rolls-Royce and not a Bugatti.

The mix-up between the two cars must have been an honest mistake, as the Miami Heat player is one of a few people in the world who can afford both cars.

The internet didn’t stop there, though, with some pointing out that Butler of all people shouldn’t be complaining about inflated prices, as he sells a cup of Bigface coffee for $20.

The basketball player started a coffee brand called ‘Bigface Coffee’ during the NBA Bubble.

Butler would charge upwards of $50 for a coffee to NBA players, and continued to sell coffee at an inflated price even when the brand opened to the public.

It’s unclear whether or not Butler was actually frustrated by the gas price or just wanted to create a silly video for his followers.

Either way, it felt relatable to see his frustration when fueling up.

That being said, it won’t have put much of a dent in his monthly budget.
