Go Home, Hipsters

Monday, February 8, 2010 17:23 GMT

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – There’s a huge backlash against skinny jean-wearing hipsters, and one man wants to send them packing.

Joseph Dante has had enough of the hipsters who have invaded his neighborhood, Brooklyn, in the last few years.

The angry native New Yorker runs IHateHipsters.blogspot.com and wants hipsters to get the hell out of the Big Apple.

He says, “They come from the Midwest, or they’re Eurotrash, and they come to Brooklyn and gentrify the neighborhood. It’s a real anti-subculture. They need to go back to their real homes.”

He feels hipsters are all posers who like to appear poor by shopping at the Salvation Army store while they live off their trust funds, unlike actual Brooklynites who really are poor.

Dante, who ironically rents apartments to hipsters, says they wouldn’t be so “annoying” if Hasidic Jews didn’t raise rental prices to “take advantage” of rich hipster kids.
