Millennials have it tough — they are consistently broke and have to tip-toe around their fancy tastes. They are also ridiculed for not having fancy tastes *What do you mean you don't have Netflix?* They have rents to pay, internships to finish, Stranger Things to stream — it's hard, okay?

And then there's Michael Rotondo,  the 30-year-old man who refuses to get a job, or leave his parents' home, or pay rent, or even make an effort to save the good, hard-working name of millennials. 

Plus, he won't even admit he is a millennial. We don't want you either buddy — but you're here.

Michael's story has gone viral and he is being labelled the most entitled millennial ever. Michael has been ordered by court to vacate his parents' New York home where he has been living rent-free for eight years. 

His parents had reportedly given him five written notices in the last few months and even offered to pay for his new place, but Rotondo told them he needed six months' notice.

"There are jobs available even for those with a poor work history like you. Get one – you have to work!” reads a formal letter which the Rotondos sent their son. 

In a recent interview, Michael revealed that he doesn't really like living with his parents, and it's "very tense and awkward". Yeah dude, we know. So, why are you there?

Plus, Michael would like to be detached from the millennial entitlement narrative, as he doesn't really see himself as a part of this generation. “I would say that I’m really not a member of that demographic. I’m a very conservative person. The millennials that they are speaking to are very liberal in their ideology,” Michael said during his CNN interview with Brooke Baldwin.

"I think a millennial is a millennial is a millennial, based upon the year that you were born,” Baldwin responded. Though she clarified that he could say he doesn't fit the stereotype.

The stereotype being people who work around 50 hours a week and a couple of part-time gigs just to afford rent. Oh... right, he doesn't know what rent is. Our bad.

Tweeple agree with us, BTW. Have a look.
