According to a recent article in The L Magazine, anti-hipster and tourist sentiments seem to be growing in Berlin.
The article suggests an upsurge of abuse has been directed towards tourists and hipsters, who some Berlin-ians blame for gentrification.
Here in America, we handle controversy over hipsters and gentrification by making nervous, self-conscious jokes about it and hoping someone changes the subject. Over in Germany, they take things a little more seriously. Seriously enough that in response to the persecution, Berlin’s hipster sympathizers have formed their very own Antifa.
Since hipsters and tourist aren’t leaving Berlin anytime soon, it’s probably best if everyone just sits down over a table of Becks and bratwurst and learns to be friends.
