CHICAGO (WLS) -A young couple from Arizona is getting a lot of grief from Chicagoans after they posted a video detailing the “traumatic experience” that led them to move out of the city after only one day. It’s even inspired a neighborhood walking tour.
Brianna Joy and Jaelin White, both 18, posted the now-viral video to their YouTube channel earlier this month called “The Reason We’re Homeless Right Now… (no clickbait) Storytime” to share their story, which they seemed to think would garner sympathy for their plight. The first problem, many said, was that the “homeless” couple filmed in an expansive kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.
The couple explains how their first adventure in the city begins with an attempt to use the CTA and ends with Jaelin allegedly taking a punch to the face. While the assault is no laughing matter, many Chicagoans ripped them on social media for their “privileged” perspective on the events leading up to it
