Bostonherald – MTV’s “The Real World: St. Thomas” doesn’t premiere until Wednesday at 10 p.m., but there’s already trouble in paradise. Cast member and Quincy resident Brandon Kane, 24, has drawn the online ire of South Boston natives for boasting of his alleged South Boston roots. His profile on MTV.com states, “Growing up in Boston’s infamous ‘Southie’ neighborhood, he has had to steal and hustle to survive.” “I know what it entails to claim South Boston,” Kane told the Herald. “I was born in Boston. My very early years, my pre-teens, were in South Boston. It was in my teen years, about 13, that I moved to Quincy with my father. … I know a lot of Southie kids take a lot of pride in it. I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes.” “It got to the point it’s getting bad. You are not going to intimidate me via Internet,” Kane told the Herald. “I just like to tell people I’m a Boston boy. Quincy touches Boston.” “I’m all about friends, family and community,” Kane said. “I’m really into tattoos and piercings and I really hope that I can shine light on that (tattooed) community. We can have tats and piercings, but we are caring. I’m not trying to come across as a (tough guy). I love parties and girls, sex and going wild, but there’s a person behind that.”
I hate this shit. With all due respect to Southie though it’s twice as bad with motherfuckers saying they are from Dorchester. Everybody trying to increase their street cred. You don’t live here bro. I don’t see you at Pats Pizza. I don’t fucking see your pussy ass at Ashmont Grill. I’m the one dodging gunfire on my way to Ice Creamsmith every night. Not you. So don’t fucking say you live here. You don’t know me. You don’t know my story. You never met a guy who met a guy who met a guy who met Whitey. You’re not real Boston. I’d love for this kid and his clown tattoos to roll through Lower Mills with me for a night. Probably piss himself. Just nothing more infuriating when posers say they are from my hood who aren’t. DOTRAT 4 LIFE!!!!!!!
PS – Real World is still on TV? That’s a joke right?
