Dad-of-three Puk Kireka joined the Mongrel Mob – one of New Zealand's most feared biker gangs – in 2008 and now want to be a personal trainer.
But since giving an interview to a New Zealand paper earlier this month, thousands have mocked him – even the rapper 50 Cent joined in.
Posting a photo of Puk and his “Notorious” tattoo, the rapper wrote “what the f*ck is really going on man… I wonder why he cant get a job”?
Puk has battled meth addiction and has been left with a massive gang-related face tattoo as he leaves crime behind and tries to raise money to go to university.

He shared a fundraising page on his Instagram this week, with the caption: “Help a brother out and support the cause”.
The page reads: “Help turn Puk Kirekas life around by raising funds for him to pursue a better education resulting in a job”.
Adding: “Help Puk on his path to his dream job by supporting him with his education, course and study fees so that he is able to obtain his Cert, Diploma and Bachelors degree in Sport and Exercise Science to become a Personal Trainer.”
