I’m glad I sparked some convo. I’m so special! And yes, the Johns family is super wealthy, and you all are jealous, and it seems ridiculous in every way, but don’t I have a right to stick up for some of my closest family friends? Does it make you all feel just a little bit bad about saying that I am defending my co-millionnaires when I tell you that I’m on financial aid at georgetown? hmmm…very interesting posts. You all hate rich people. Then why are you at georgetown? Why don’t you all sign up for UDC and mingle with people “just like you”? also, IT’S TEEN CRIBS YOU FUCKTARDS give it up and just let me be right already! Because I already am!

If you care that much, you can look it up yourself. This post is ridiculous. Anyone in Georgetown or people who know the family would know how generous they are, and how much they give back to the community. Teen Cribs was done as something fun to do, and nobody was trying to ‘flaunt’ anything, but rather do what the producers said to make a good TV show. This also happened MONTHS ago.. Where were you then Julie Patterson?!

Those kids suck, probably more then their parents. Odds are they’ll get addicted to coke at boarding school, go to some shitty private school like Radford, get a job at some mid-level accounting firm and end up fat and lazy without ever accomplishing anything in life.

I have a sneaking suspicion my middle-class ass will get the last laugh.

They put themselves out in the public sphere for everyone to see, you moron. Now sites like Vox, and other sites that follow shows relevant to Georgetown and DC, aren’t supposed to talk about it? This family is on a television show broadcasting their stupidity across the nation. If they were so concerned with privacy they wouldn’t have opened their (gaudy) home to cameras, smart stuff. Furthermore, if the girl is ugly as sin she very well may look like a combo of a rugby player and Anne Coulter. That has nothing to do with her sexual orientation, yet everything to do with terrible, terrible genes.

Maybe that’s because I think the show is funny (aka laughably idiotic).

I volunteer a lot of my time with kids on the other side of the Anacostia. They weren’t “blessed” with pool houses or two-acre backyards. Instead, they were (what would the Johns family consider the opposite of “blessed?” “Cursed?”) with a two-room section 8 apartment. They don’t get to sleep in bedrooms “designed to look like cabins”, they get one corner of a room and sleep on the floor. They don’t come home from a day at St. Albans and “chill” to their own jukebox, they run (for their lives) home from a temporary holding pen the DC government calls a school and and turn on the TV to watch this shit. I wonder what that does to a kid. Oh wait, no I don’t – it makes them seethe with rage and hopelessness. I don’t begrudge anyone’s wealth, but flaunting it is simply cruel. But hey, I bet it will make for great personal statement fodder when the Johns children apply to college. The kids I work with (the very, very few who dare to dream of college) will probably write about more mundane stuff like dodging bullets and being homeless. Its the bomb dot com!

Wait … you’re making fun of a kid because he’s grateful to his parents for showing an interest in his activities?

Thanks for catching my (admittedly dumb) typo.
