It may seem like forever ago, but the public got their first glimpse at 13-year old Danielle Bregoli back in September 2016 when she appeared on The Dr. Phil Show. The key moment was when the teenage car-thief, enraged with the audience’s reaction to her, shouted, “Catch me outside. How ’bout that?” And the rest was history. While it didn’t catch on immediately, the Internets know when they have a good thing going and the meme exploded in early 2017.
Since then, Danielle, now known world-over as the “Cash Me Ousside Girl,” has been seen on TMZ getting tossed off a Spirit Airlines flight for disorderly conduct–and subsequently banned from future flights; and ranting in various videos throughout social media.
We even got a bit of a Mandela Effect moment from her, but it turns out we were just thinking about every other uncontrollable fatherless white girl who’s ever been exploited by daytime television.
The level of exploitation this naive teenager is experiencing can only end badly. No doubt she’s letting it go to her head; but the rest of the world isn’t helping when they either threaten and harass her, or inflate her ego as the questionably talented Kodak Black did in his latest music video with World Star Hip Hop.
Like Hollywood, the hip hop community is no stranger to exploiting children, but I propose we gut this problem now and turn Cash Me Ousside into the new Live Strong. Instead of a facetious excuse to make fun of a teenage wigger’s use of AAVE, we can turn “Cash Me Ousside” into an affirmation, a charity, or a cause; a slogan that means you are independently ready to fight for what you believe in.
Because fuck Dr. Phil. Danielle is a hero.
