Airbnb’s are like a box chocolate, you never really know what you’re going to get, or in this case what you’re in store for. One Boston couple probably won’t be staying in any more Airbnb’s after their host went cray cray on them. The host broke into the house he rented out to the couple at night, and nearly scared them to death, and that’s not even the craziest part.
According to DailyMail, a black couple rented out a house in LA for a holiday. They traveled 3,000 miles and were greeted with a bottle of wine from their ‘super host’, JJ, when they arrived at what they thought was going to be a relaxing getaway.
What’s crazy about this is that JJ came crashing through a window onto the property the next day after they checked in.
Chiedozie Uwandu and Jaleesa Jackson were awakened by the sound of JJ banging on the front door around 5:30 AM. “I know you’re in there, Kevin!”
Jaleesa told who she though was a stranger to leave, and then hit up JJ to tell him about what happened. ‘Yeah, that was me. Sorry about the confusion. Life’s too short for me to give you an explanation. Have a nice time in LA.’
So if that wasn’t weird enough, JJ took it a step further when he “smashed through a large window wearing a grey jumper with a hood covering his head.” JJ demanded that the couple pay the “cleaning fee” but Chiedozie ended up tackling him to the ground before he managed to getaway.
The couple called the police and they ended up deploying helicopters and eventually brought JJ back to the house in handcuffs. During all this commotion, an elderly woman popped up to see what was going on, and y’all aren’t going to believe this! Turns out the elderly woman rented the building to JJ and he was out here renting it off like it was his own.
Airbnb felt bad for the couple and offered to put them in a different house, but after all that chaos they decided to get a hotel instead. They ended up spending $2,300 and asked the company to run them a check for $5,000 for the foolery, but they offered them no more than $2,500 and 5 therapy sessions to deal with what happened. The couple decided to pass on that offer which means they will probably take the legal route.
Y’all still staying in Airbnb’s?
