The man’s social media account features numerous wild videos filled with Bobby’s wild energy. 

His love of yogurt is well documented too. In February 2017, he shared a photo of himself photoshopped onto a body with the caption, ‘When Mom says no more yogurt.’  

According to the National Capital Poison Center, water-based paint can cause vomiting if eaten in large quantities. Some do contain man-made or natural pigments like cobalt or cadmium, which can be harmful to the body.

Oil-based paints contain extremely poisonous solvents and are dangerous for the body if consumed.
