Watch the “Brooklyn Girls” Music Video Everybody Hates

Breaking news: Brooklyn is officially no longer cool

Catey Shaw posted her “Brooklyn Girls” music video to YouTube just two days ago, and it’s already going viral — because it’s making people so upset.

Vice is calling Shaw the “Rebecca Black of Brooklyn Gentrification.” Yikes.
