If A Dude Says He Writes For ‘Broad City,’ DON’T FUCK HIM
During a recent stand-up set, Ilana Glazer revealed that there’s a dude out there not only pretending to be a writer for Broad City to score chicks, but he meticulously curated photos like a goddamn serial killer to boost his bullshit story. Via Revelist:
One of the writers for “Broad City” season 4 discovered this when her friend told her she’d gone on a date with someone who also claimed to be a writer for the series — which, obviously, is totally false. “There’s, like, four of us,” Ilana noted. ‘Abbi and I are, like, two of the four.”
This wasn’t just the hokey kind of lie you tell to someone you’ll never see again, either — this guy got elaborate. According to the friend, he also reposted pictures he took with Abbi and Ilana at a 2014 comedy show with captions suggesting the three were friends, and sent the girl images he found online of “Broad City” production and attempted to pass them off as his own.
“I’m like, some girl’s gonna die and blood will be on our hands,” Ilana said. “I got douche-chills for days.”
So, if a guy ever he tells you he’s besties with Ilana and Abbi, be on your guard. “No men work on ‘Broad City,'” she said. (For the record, there are some male writers on the show, but it’s not difficult to whip out your phone and verify that on IMDB if you meet them IRL.)
According to ONTD, who had the exclusive, the dude’s name is Zach Jobin and you can follow that link for the full audio of Ilana specifically warning you not to fuck shady assholes. On that note, during that one year when people used to read The Superficial, I actually had real live women – I didn’t believe it myself. – email me about dudes claiming they wrote the site, which is hilarious because clearly it’s written by a recluse who’s as terrified of human interaction as he is the sun. The bright, burning sun. It hateses it…
