'Hamptons Ho' Twitter Thread Excites With Mysterious Money & Movie-Worthy Hilarity

Twitter user Jaime Primak caused quite a stir on the social media platform after tweeting a twisty and saucy thread yesterday. The saga begins with an introduction to her friend who lives in the Hamptons: 

From there, things get a bit crazier. While the 20 year old was (thankfully) not doing anything seriously criminal, it appears he had caught the attention of some wealthy Hamptons women, and had saved the money earned during, well, intimate encounters with the cougars in question. The thread has gone viral, and people have a lot of opinions about it. Some people think it's fake. Others think the young man's parents are stealing from him. There are also people who think the entire thread is invasive and unethical. We think it's a much-needed chuckle during a dark time. You can read below and decide for yourself.

Chainsmokers Under Fire Following Irresponsible Hamptons 'Drive-In' Concert

Electronic pop group The Chainsmokers are being widely criticized following a "Drive-In" charity concert they performed in the Hamptons on Saturday. The performance was intended to raise money for charities, with tickets prices ranging between $1,250 to $2,500. The hefty cost is no surprise given the New York summer spot's incredibly wealthy reputation.

While organizers of the event said the temperatures of all 3,000 attendees were checked, and that preventative social distancing was enforced, social media footage from the event paints a different story. Video from the concert appears to show a sizable crowd that's clearly ignoring the 6ft rules of safe distance. The footage is so damning that Governor Andrew Cuomo tweeted his disapproval late Monday: 

"Videos from a concert held in Southampton on Saturday show egregious social distancing violations. I am appalled. The Department of Health will conduct an investigation. We have no tolerance for the illegal & reckless endangerment of public health."

Though organizers of the "Safe and Sound" event claim to have worked with state and local health officials to keep attendees safe, the response from government figures says otherwise.  Howard Zucker, the New York State Health Commissioner, sent a perplexed letter to the Town of Southampton expressing his shock that anyone would think this show was a good idea during a deadly pandemic.

As of right now, the event is being investigated by the New York Department of Health - and the Chainsmokers have yet to comment on the situation. But folks on Twitter seem to have a lot to say about the oft-roasted music group's incredibly callous performance. We've put together the best tweets for your entertainment. Now all we can do is hope that the Northeast doesn't get that second wave it's been desperately avoiding.
