Sean Parker Says Life In The 1 Percent Is Really Hard
12:15 pm, October 27th | by Hillary Reinsberg
Sean Parker’s real good at complaining. When it comes around to Occupy Wall Street, he’s complaining too. About how hard life in the 1 percent is. Really? Really.
“I have a whole new set of problems to deal with now: security, extortion attempts, kidnapping threats, death threats, etc. Life better b4?”
Wait, we’re confused. Maybe life wasn’t better before…
“You guys are really attacking me for being the 1%? I was broke and couch surfing just a few years ago.”
Either way, Parker doesn’t think he’s the problem. Wall Street is. Of course, Parker finds a way to blame someone else:
“The problem is not the wealthy or even super wealthy, the problem is too much finance. We need less Wall St. and more Main St.”
In the past, Parker’s complained about being an outsider (come on, man, you hang out with celebrities, you’re hardly an outsider) and about being pressured to live up to the party boy reputation (oh, how awful it must be to have Justin Timberlake play you in a movie).
Sean, we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: you have to take what you’ve got, which is, in your case, over $2 billion.
