I viewed this previously, and what I thought was most telling were the comments disparaging Airbnb hosts. We’ve got an image problem due to the arbitraging bad actors.
I saw that video and thought it was making fun of the disgruntled hosts, not actually a rant from a disgruntled host.
The guys is a nit for buying into airbnbs lovey dovey rubbish. Must of never been stung by a BS EC cancellation before.
This video has been posted here a week ago. I agree with Brian that this is mocking hosts. A sign of a good satire is that not everyone gets the joke.
I agree we have a bad reputation, certainly in areas. That was made clear to me in the Jersey City referendum in Nov. Airbnb spent over $4 million and lost big. 69% of voters voted in favor of the strong regulations the city had passed.
And it’s not just rental arbitrage; I believe it’s absentee landlords. And let’s face it lots of us would not want to live next door to an Airbnb, even a well managed one.
Next he will be advocating forsythia.
I want to “get” this. What do you mean @justMandi? Do tell please.
