This Brooklyn woman’s landlord sucks mistake!
TikTok knockout Trina Rose’s landlady is looking to increase her already sky-high New York City rent by a whopping $800 for a roach-infested Williamsburg apartment prone to flooding and overrun by a sea of dead rats.
“Hi Trina, we’re going to add $800 to your rent because it’s the apartment [is] Worth it,” Rose, 28, wrote in the captions of her trending TikTok tell-all, which has garnered more than 148,300 views so far.
Her post comes as controversy surrounding inflation and the Big Apple’s trend for rent increases take to social media. However, recent research by Redfin showed that rent increases could soon be “ending”.
That possibility notwithstanding, by the looks of her viral video, Rose’s landlords should be paying her to live there.
Rose didn’t immediately respond to the Post’s request for comment.
In her pathetic clip, sex and body positivity advocate Rose gives her 40,800+ followers a gruesome glimpse into her livable digs while playing a cheeky “because it’s worth it” sound bite in the background.
She begins the video tour with scenes from her bathroom, which is flooded with several inches of water. The footage then transitions into a serpentine line of huge but dead roaches strewn across their tiled floor. But the most egregious sight is the horde of drowned rats strewn about their home. Rose even films herself picking up the bugs by hand and disposing of the little pests in a plastic bag.
And with that, disgusted cyber viewers asked Rose to take legal action against her “greedy bastard” of a landlord.
“Girls take your landlord to court you will win,” wrote one concerned commenter.
“Breach of lease, my friend. leave it there [please]’ demanded another.
In response, Rose shared a follow-up testimony, explaining to her digital students that after she and her roommate told the building manager they couldn’t afford an extra $800 on their $3,000 rent, he put the unlivable crib online listed for $4,700 a month.
“The greedy bastard… listed it for $1,700 more than me and my roommate are paying now,” barked the brunette.
“He listed the apartment for [$4,700] a month,” she exclaimed. “And will he put $1,700 into this place for improvements? no There will still be roaches, it will still lure rats in the back and if there’s a freaking tropical storm it’ll flood.”
Rose ended her recorded tirade – which she captioned “Brooklyn Rent Scam” and punctuated with a series of “alert” emojis – with a stern word to the wise for home seekers hoping to move into her borough.
“If you’re looking for an apartment on Woodpoint Road in Brooklyn that’s listed for $4,700 a month, you’re going to be scammed,” she advised.
“You are being cheated.”
