Thorpe told BuzzFeed, 'Pitbull was very cool and unflappable. I didn’t get to speak to him too much, but his entourage spoke very highly of him." Thorpe also tweeted out photos alongside him and his target, and relayed this message: "Just met Pitbull. He shook my hand and said 'Keep bullshitting. Next thing you know we'll be on the moon.'" At some point, Pitbull tweeted "'Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.' Sun-tzu ;)" along with a photo of him and Thorpe.
