When Jatavia Johnson of the City Girls, affectionately known as JT by the duo’s fans, was incarcerated for fraudulent credit card charges in 2018, she received a two-year jail sentence. When Shannade Clermont was indicted for wire fraud and identity theft, she faced 42 years in prison. Despite serving only one year, before being transferred to a halfway house, she nor Johnson received a Netflix special that depicted their criminal offenses like that of a bubblegum fairytale, with them being painted as resilient heroines who were being unfairly treated by the criminal justice system. Do you know who did receive that treatment? Anna Sorokin, also known as Anna Delvey, was the biggest scammer to hit the Upper East Side since Georgina Sparks (see Gossip Girl).
