Earlier today, TMZ released video of a teenage girl socking a Spirit Airlines passenger in the head for grabbing her mother. Being the savage that I am, watching fight videos online is one of my favorite ways to pass the time, but this one was different, because it involved Danielle Bregoli, a.k.a. the "Cash Me Ousside, How Bow Dah?" girl, because of course it does.
I figured I wouldn't need to explain things like that anymore, but I promise you there are people who aren't up on this meme. Instead of just laughing at these people and breaking their phones, I decided I'd be the bigger person and give a brief history on Bregoli and how a random clip on The Dr. Phil Show turned into a viral sensation that seems to be building from strength to wildly ignorant strength.
Bregoli's rise to internet fame starts in September of 2016, where she was a part of an episode of The Dr. Phil Show that dealt with parents and their unruly teens. Danielle, in fact, was the unruly teen.
For some reason, Danielle is going ham on her mom, to the point where she's running away four times in one day, stealing cards, credit cards, and just being a menace. What made Danielle unique is her accent, or whatever voice she's putting on. She says it's from "the streets," which Dr. Phil couldn't understand. She also admits that she stopped going to school in the seventh grade... which is troubling.
The bit that turned into a viral sensation occurs around the 3:20 mark in the above video. She wasn't feeling the "whores" in the audience laughing at her, and threatened to fight them with a quick "catch me outside, how about that?" Although, with her accent, it sounds more like "cash me ousside, how bow dah?" And thus, we have a catchphrase that turned into internet GOLD.
According to Know Your Meme, "cash me ousside" was getting some burn on the low at the end of 2016 and into early 2017, but it wasn't until Digital Memes started posting it on Facebook in the latter half of January 2017 that things started to truly go insane. That's when the meme circuit took it and ran with it, dropping all kinds of trap remixes and tweets among other insane reworks of this epic slice of content.
It got so big that Dr. Phil couldn't escape it, discussing the meme on The Late Show, The View, and other spots. That means the mainstream is paying attention to internet culture, but that also means that this wild 13-year-old is turning into a little celebrity. Like a Z-list celebrity, but a celeb nonetheless. Which, of course, means that she's on TMZ's radar HARD.
The above footage is from about four days ago. As you can see, Danielle doesn't seem to truly be here for all of this. When asked about how she feels about "cash me ousside" going viral, her response was, "It's just something that happened! I can't control what ya'll people decide to do with me," which is some of the realest sh*t she's ever said.
Then, of course, she threatened to "punch one of ya'll in ya'll sh*t."
Keep in mind, this was shot in Los Angeles, and released the same day that The Dr. Phil Show released (then removed) a teaser for Danielle's return to The Dr Phil Show. When the TMZ guy asked about her returning to Dr. Phil, Danielle dropped the impressive "ya'll gon' see, ya'll gon' see" on some discreet sh*t, but her mom Barbara legit just says, "We're gonna be on Dr. Phil this week."
Whenever she hits the show next seems TBD at this time (although the Daily Mail reports she's due to reappear on February 10), but that hasn't stopped her attempt to cash-in on this sudden internets fame. Homegirl recently linked up with PizzaSlime to launch an online merchandise store. Most of the merch is kind of mid, but this Champion hoodie remix is smart as hell.
Can't knock her for trying to cash in while she's still relevant, although this kind of relevancy, at the ripe old age of 13, sounds terrible. At the very least, we all got a chuckle from her catchphrase and will be on some "oh yeah!" sh*t at the end of 2017 when we look back at the year's dankest of memes. More importantly, we hope she actually turns her life around with her next trip to Dr. Phil... or she makes enough money to where she can send a goon ousside if someone is trying to scrap. How bow dah?
