'Psycho' Guest Trashed Airbnb Apartment And Left Blood On The Walls
An Airbnb host found her rental apartment completely wrecked – with broken furniture, a mice infestation and bloodstains on the walls following a six-month stay. The apartment is located in Brooklyn, New York. The trashed Airbnb incident was so disturbing that the guest, a 36-year-old NYU professor, earned comparisons to Norman Bates, some of Hollywood’s most infamous film psychos created by Alfred Hitchcock.
The Airbnb host named Jazmin Jones (@jazminrjones), a Brooklyn-based filmmaker, decided to post a TikTok video last week featuring the state of the apartment. With a caption that says “@airbnb y’all better help us clean up after Norman Bates…, Jones shows some sort of dried dark red or brown liquid smeared and dripping from a white wall, which she refers to as blood. Also, the text written on the screen of the video “POV: you come home to the realization that your Airbnb guest was a literal demon…” The video, posted on May 26, went viral, reaching millions of viewers on this platform.
In the video, it’s possible to see bags of trash and old takeout strewn across the floor and piles of sheets and pillows pulled off the bed. The bathroom was also messy. It was covered in toiletry products and makeup spilled on the sink. In the kitchen, the guest left a pile of dirty dishes and started to grow mold.
According to Jones, the apartment was also infested with mice. The video ends by showing Jones and her friend sitting outside her apartment building.
“And you spend your birthday weekend tryna figure out how to hire hazard cleaners, get your deposit, and find lodging in a housing crisis,” the video caption reads.
As the Sun reported, Jones said she is trying to sue to get the deposit, but first she has to itemize the damage and file a police report about the trashed Airbnb incident. “We have contacted the authorities and will be approaching this like a crime scene/lawsuit,” she wrote via text overlay on the video.
