A Family Of Terrible Tourists Has Been Terrorizing New Zealand

January 17, 2019 / Posted by:

Unbeknownst to most of the world, Kiwi Twitter has been aflutter in recent weeks with tales and sightings of a family of tourists who have been wreaking havoc (ok, brazen rudeness) up and down the coast of New Zealand. No attraction from was safe from the group, popularly known as The Bad Family. Don’t worry, they aren’t Americans! They are either British or Irish, nobody seems to know for sure, and neither country wants to claim them. According to a recent exposé by Slate, TBF first made their presence known when a woman saw them littering, and confronted them at a beach in Auckland. That’s when the family of about 12, first showed their asses. Imagine a shirtless little 9-year-old boy coming at you like Cardi. B up in the club.

Here’s the first known sighting of TBF.

And it only got worse from there.

The family’s alleged crimes are many and varied. Not only did they refuse to pick up their own rubbish, they had the cheek to tell locals to pick it up for them. They have been accused of purposely contaminating meals with both ants and strands of hair to get out of paying the sometimes hundreds of dollars’ worth of food they’d ordered, leaving a shit-filled baby onesie on a plane, and walking through a Burger King drive-thru.

Apparently they were so bad, the New Zealand Herald created a timeline to track TBF’s movements. People were asked to report any sightings.

They tried to bully some dude on the street into letting them “borrow” his scooter. At one point, they threw toast on the floor. Some members of TBF were seen on closed circuit TV stealing sunglasses, “a couple of Red Bulls, and, weirdly, a length of rope from a petrol station”. They are suspected of having stolen a Christmas tree from a gas station as well. Eventually, TBF had to face the consequences of their actions. The person who stole the rope was charged with shoplifting and had to appear in court. She pleaded guilty, but not before making a scene at the courthouse.

One headline cried following the Hamilton court appearance. Yes, there he was, the naughty, confident child—inexplicably shirtless once again, despite being at court—FLIPPING THE BIRD at media and assorted local rubberneckers.

Ultimately, the government got involved and they were served with a deportation notice. According to NewsHub, they have been branded as “undesirables” and have 14 days to appeal the deportation of GTFO. Turns out TBF were planning on leaving anyway because they came to see Hobbits, but they never found any.
