Real World Brooklyn vs. Hipsters —
The Real World Brooklyn cast was spotted at a Semi Precious Weapons show at Rebel on Monday, which is interesting, but the fun part is the complaint voiced by cast member Chet Bannon, who is the Mormon among them. He said: "When we go to Williamsburg we get harassed. The hipsters throw things at us and say 'Why are you here? Go home!' Ten years ago none of them were there either." He looked hurt and wondered, 'Why are the hipsters so small minded?'" [NYPress; Real World Coverage] [from http://www.curbed.com/ and NY Press]
Ha! In one sentence this guy managed to sum up everything I cannot stand about BillBurg hipsters. Boy oh boy would the Real World cast have had fun in the BoogieDown. SoBro businesses would be fawning all over them hoping for 10 minutes of fame not associated with the "Bronx is Burning" stereotype. They could have experienced all the good stuff about NYC, minus the Brooklyn 'tudes. I guess the Real World cast should just consider themselves lucky that they haven't been attacked with machetes yet.
