“What’s Considered Trashy If You’re Poor, But Classy If You’re Rich?”—41 Tweets

It’s interesting that the same behaviors poor people are looked down on are celebrated when rich people do them.

It’s nearly every single thing you can think of, at least that’s what I realized when I was reading through the responses to this question @AnaSamways asked on Twitter: “What’s considered trashy if you’re poor, but classy if you’re rich?”

Drugs are glorified when rich people do them, but when poor people do them they are labeled “crackheads.” If poor people wear sportswear in public, they are looked down on but when rich people do it it’s a “trend.”

A lot of people noted that government assistance is trashy if poor people are getting it (welfare) but classy if rich people are getting it (“bailouts.”)
