Six Reasons Riff Raff Is an Unfunny Moron
There's a lot of talk about racial divides in this country. But there's one thing that Americans of all colors, creeds, ethnicities, and walks of life can agree on: Riff Raff is a fucking embarrassment.
Have you seen this confused individual? He's supposed to be a joke (we think), but it's one of those things where you live in the joke for so long you start to lose sight of the punch line. It's kind of like what Joaquin Phoenix did in I'm Still Here, but without any of the redeeming artistic aspects.
And no, just because Diplo thinks you're cool, doesn't mean you aren't an unfunny moron.
He Didn't Grow Up Talking That Way
So, Riff Raff, AKA Jody Highroller was actually born Jody Christian. He's from Houston, but we doubt he's from the part that actually produces streetwise individuals. If he struggled as a child, he wouldn't walk around, acting like such a moron. Instead, his thin veil of humor and ignorant cultural reappropriations lead us to believe that he must have gone to private school, come from a good home, and been sheltered for his entire youthful existence. This man has probably never had any reason to worry in his life.
He Has an Icee Chain
Case in point: A person who's earned a dollar instead of being given one probably wouldn't spend money like a teenage girl. This goofy-ass cornbread bro has an Icee chain?! Like, it looks like an Icee that you buy at a gas station, but it's covered in precious jewels and could probably feed a whole family in Africa for a year. We assume it's supposed to be kitschy and ironic, but it just makes him look like an asshole.Next Page
