Are gypsy honestly that big of a problem? I've seen pretty much the tip of the iceberg from "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" and what it comes off as to me(as a US citizen) they are the UK's version of "hill billies" I'm not sure if it was the show just making them come off that way or if that's how they really are, but I'm very curious about that whole culture.

Yes gypsys are that bad lmao, I live near a few of the people on that show and they are constantly causing problems. The worst a travelling gypsys.. They turn up to a field or a car park and stay for a few days until the police move them and they leave rubbish and mess everywhere it's vile! Also pretty much everyone hates them, always robbing and fighting with people.

I can't say they really bother me. I don't live in an area where there is enough of them to cause a problem. But I understand why they are a nuisance to others, especially when they park there caravans/homes anywhere they like bad leave all their rubbish behind when they decide to leave.

But I thought all the women did was cook and clean and make babies??..why would they such a mess and then complain that people are mean to them! It's so weird that they are actually how they are perceived on the show!!...and (if you know) are there weddings always that "tacky"? I mean, with the neon everything thing and animal print on all things?...It's so weird that here in the in Hawaii, I sit here and hate that people judge us because people still think that we are this uncivilized culture of savage hawaiians who live in huts and sit in hula skirts and coconut shell bras, and I allowed myself to think that the only thing that could ever come out of Europe is a civilized higher class of human being! I keep forgetting that everywhere is almost exactly the same with the good and the bad people in it!...

Oh yeah the weddings are exactly how they are on the show, I live around the corner from a pub they all go and have party's at and it is horrendous, like honestly it's ridiculous what they wear, even for christenings! The kids twerk, dance like adults and dress like wh**es basically but 'that's ok because they don't have sex before marriage' lmao. They get a lot of abuse due to being a gypsy. My mum is a teacher and she has two gypsy kids in her class who had a limo to their holy communion lol
