THE quintessential "hipster" compounded by man boobs that belong to a 13 year old girl.
His publicist is the real hero here, then again, it's L.A. so everyone has an angle on how to promote themselves effectively.

Oh, we are talking about the Defenders, sorry. I had a late night last night and I'm a little cranky this morning.

I could do a better job than this guy!

Ok. I just watched the video of this douche! Who wants to start a real refurbishing business? I just recently left the military so I have the time. I just need someone else with the time and mechanical skill.

didn't mean to 'hate on him' so much, but for some reason that rasta hat and skinny jeans triggered a visceral reaction.

I'm just jealous because I'd love to have his job. (either banging a rich girfriend or building Defenders).

Haters gonna hate, you know
