The Observer‘s baby is all grown up and talking to TV reporters: “Hipster Grifter” Kari Ferrell just gave an interview to ABC news. Our favorite fraudulent former Brooklynite is currently in jail awaiting her October 9th sentencing, with bail set at $250, 000.
Reflecting upon the attention her story received, Ms. Ferrell offered the following explanation. “I am pretty, intelligent, and very well spoken,” she told ABC. “I am charming and funny.”
And modest, Kari! You forgot modest.
ABC explains Ms. Ferrell’s Observer-coined nickname thusly: she is known as the Hipster Grifter “because of her appearance,” and “because of accusations that she wrote bad checks and shoplifted her way through Salt Lake City.”
