Where are they? Similar to the Scamptons.
A popular person in New York has criticised the Hamptons for having overpriced drinks, long lines, and no cell service.
Grace Hagan posted a video rant to her popular TikTok account. In it, she took direct aim at Montauk, which used to be a surf town for working-class people but is now full of rich hipsters and social media stars.
“Montauk = scam,” the brunette wrote in the description of her video, which was shot in a shabby motel room she said cost $1,000 per night.
Hagan’s hopes for a beach weekend in the summer did not match up with the reality, and the influencer made a long list of things that went wrong.
“A table at the crowded bar Surf Lodge costs $15,000, and a drink costs $30,” the pretty woman complained.
But Hagan didn’t just hate the Hamptons because of the prices; the angry influencer also found fault in a number of other ways.
“There’s no phone service anywhere, and all the places that serve food close at 8 p.m.,” she said with a face that didn’t show much surprise. “If you want to eat, good luck.”
Hagan also complained about long lines at “cheugy” bars. She said she had to wait 90 minutes to get into a place that wasn’t cool.
Her video quickly got almost 400,000 views, and other people who had bad experiences in the Hamptons left comments telling their own stories.
One ally said, “Overrated and overpriced.”
But there were some people who didn’t care as much about the influencer’s problems. One of them said dryly, “Why don’t you go somewhere else?”
“I go every summer,” said someone else. “It’s kind of expensive, but this is so exciting.”
But the truth about the Hamptons is often hard to find, as a recent report in The Post showed.
Illegal immigrants are forced to live in hidden camps in wooded areas of the Hamptons because they can’t afford to live in the expensive area.
“I work for very rich people in the Hamptons, but I can’t afford a place to live,” a worker who was living in one of the squalid camps said in a shocking way. “I don’t get paid enough, and an apartment costs too much.”
