Solidifying #63 America as one of the douchiest countries on Earth, two Californians were arrested for carving their initials “J & N” into, then taking a selfie with, Rome’s Colosseum. The two women, ages 21 and 25, were ratted on by other tourists then promptly arrested for “aggravated damage on a building of historical and artistic interest.”
While Betches do indulge in the occasional selfie (or thirty) and enjoy living above most laws, leaving your initials on an international landmark is fucking dumb. As if the assumption of Americans shitting on everything they feel entitled to isn’t perpetuated enough, people do things like this that make the rest of the world hate us even more. Also a true Betch would at least have been smart enough to write the full name of her worst frenemie, and then run.
To make matters worse the pair reportedly stated: “We apologize for what we did. We regret it, but we did not imagine it was something so serious.” J & N, you guys are the living worst.
Only American twenty-somethings would go abroad, fuck up a monument and be like, “Sorry, not sorry. Can you take fucking a chill pill?” We can only assume, and hope, the pair was also charged with public intoxication because there really is no sober excuse for this.
Ugh, this is why we can’t have nice things.
