  1. no comments left on this story.. there must be no hipsters in this hood.. or old white ladys with cats who are noisy.

    • At least you never see the “old white ladies with cats” committing armed robbery, Sunny.

      Always seems to be the same guy in the film. Why is that? Please explain.

    • Why is it that there is always some pinchi rasista calling himself “Sunny” on the eastsider? I’m surprised your drop-out a$$ even know how’s how to read…

  2. One word for you sunny… Gentrification!

    See you later, leach!

  3. Thank God there are no hipsters in EL Sereno! I hate what they are doing to mom and pop shops in Highland Park, my home for more than 25 years. Not to mention how the rent has changed now that every Hollywood hipsters has moved in and turned homes into businesses, trendy coffee shops, and bike shops. Don’t get me wrong, all these kind of business are good for the community, but they where once owned by community members, now they are owned by some hipster trying to make money.

    Hipsters are leaches.

    • You are so right! I wish all these new restaurants, trendy shops, and cafes would just go away and be replaced with more auto repair shops, party supply stores, laundry mats, 99 cent shops, and water stores! Let’s also bring back the Avenues gang…the new Highland Park sucks so much compared to the Highland Park of the 90’s.

      Hipster leeches ruin everything!
