“I mean there's such a thing as earning money, making money, but kicking people out to make money? It's just I thought there were laws against that. And they're finding ways to go around that. And they're making up shit and they're scaring people, they're intimidating people. I don't intimidate well. I'm a fighter. I'm not gonna deal with it.”
