LA Photographer Throws Obnoxious Party On NYC Subway
NY doesn't ❤️ her.
Riding the subway in New York City can be a stressful experience on its own, especially if you're going to/from work. Whether it's crowded, delayed, stuck, hot, noisy, or smelly, there's always something to grumble about. Commuters are used to looking out for the occasional wild card like a masturbator or public urinator, but this might be a first.
Gird your loins, New Yorkers. The birthday bitch is here.

We use the term "bitch" affectionately, of course. We get that the influencer bubble traps people in an "it's all about me" mentality. Their life suddenly revolves around creating the next fun (enviable) photo shoot, but doing it for the 'gram can get pretty annoying to people who live outside that bubble.
This supposedly "spontaneous" party was thrown at the end of a subway car on the JMZ line, which runs from Manhattan through Brooklyn and out into Queens, when dinner reservations fell through (they forgot to make them). Birthday girl and Instagram user @amberasaly got on with her friends and set up a table and a banner that said "Go GIrL ITs YA BDAY". They ate lobster and pasta and drank white wine. There was a piñata. There were presents. There was music and decorations. It could've been a good party, honestly, if only it wasn't so tainted by obnoxious colorful exhibitionism. We cringe.
Instagrammers worldwide are probably getting ideas... but please, just don't. This shit is messy, disruptive, and annoying as all get out. The world doesn't revolve around you, even on your birthday. Crazy, I know! Theoretically, the ladies cleaned up after themselves before leaving the train, but unless they brought a vacuum, there's no way they got all that confetti. Just drink your wine at home next time, gals. Leave the rest of us in peace.
Think we're being too hard on them? Allow us to pull in some Twitter backup:
I’d think an NYC-based event planner would know not to serve out-of-season shellfish and plain pasta. Plus I also once saw a bedbug crawling on the floor of the J train, so there’s that. https://t.co/IUC9JVnAIC via @nbcnewyork #MondayMorning— Anne Szustek Talbot (@the59thStBridge) November 12, 2018
OH. HELL. NO.— noah michelson (@noahmichelson) November 8, 2018
As if the people pissing and defecating and puking and masturbating and preaching and manspreading and fighting and not wearing pants and wearing Santa costumes and taking up an entire seat with their greasy takeout bag weren't bad enough? https://t.co/4a5I75a3Re
They had to schlepp everything up to the platform. Can picture the Myrtle/Broadway crowd: pic.twitter.com/GwOnhKm30D— ©wordfromyrmom i*came*to*drop*bombs (@cbgb84) November 8, 2018

PS: Please don't ever sit on the subway floor in New York. We hope she burned that dress afterwards.
