Arab Prince's Twitter avatar

The Arab Prince a.k.a. TheTCREngineer was, as his name suggested, a supposed wealthy prince from the United Arab Emirates who is a member of Ghost's Inner Circle and a serious listener of True Capitalist Radio. He had established himself as something of an enemy to the trolls but has also become a trolling meme, often playing Ghost's supposed financial allegiance to his supporters against his racist tendencies. The Arab Prince, despite his presumed stance against trolls, had occasionally trolled Ghost himself.

History on TCR

Ghost publicly revealed the Arab Prince's membership in Capitalist Episode 466, after word had spread within the Inner Circle. Many Twitter names and several Radio Graffiti calls followed accusing Ghost of being funded by ISIS, among other jokes. However, the Arab Prince would become much more controversial in the aftermath of the Mr. Fortune Cookie-Mr. Optimism autograph battle, as it was discovered that he had purchased an enormous number of Mr. Optimism autographs (allegedly 100), stealing the competition for the cancellation of Radio Graffiti. He was apparently motivated by being a serious listener who was tired of the show's increasing focus on trolling.

In Capitalist Episode 470, the Arab Prince was one of several Inner Circle members supposedly doxed by /pol/. However, he denied all elements of the dox except for his name, and the reported dox had been seemingly lost.

The Arab Prince continued to dislike trolling and Radio Graffiti, calling to say as much on several occasions, such as Capitalist Episode 473 and Saturday Night Show Episode 4 during Radio Graffiti. He had asked Ghost to stop doing the Saturday Night Troll Show. It was never clarified that these calls were the real Arab Prince, as his voice was highly reminiscent of Ghost doing a stereotypical accent. Ghost was often bombarded with tweets and later, posts calling for the ejection or banning of the Arab Prince, to which Ghost angrily responded that he could not betray the Arab Prince due to his financial backing.

The Arab Prince was presumed to actually be a troll pretending to be a serious caller. This was shown during Radio Graffiti in Episode 440, where he called in saying that he is going to get a sex-change operation. He trolled Ghost again in a later broadcast asking if he can purchase his son, making him angry again. The Arab Prince trolled Ghost yet again during Episode 466, when he called in to claim that he only brought the Optimism autographs because he wanted to take over the show. Whether or not that the Arab Prince actually did buy a lot of Optimism autographs to mess with everyone was never clarified, and he could've known that Ghost wouldn't get rid of Radio Graffiti, because the trolls would then call in during the regular hours of the broadcast. He was mentioned in several of Tub Guy's calls in March 2017, one of which was where they both got rainbow hijabs, leading Ghost to rage quite hard.

The Arab Prince was regularly found on TCR /pol/ threads during the broadcasts until they began to decline after Ghost stopped tolerating trolls on his broadcast. He was one of many callers to disappear after The Break, and he stopped reposting his broadcast sometime before the end of 2017.
