Twitter Blasts Mogul Who Says Millennials Can’t Afford Houses Because They’re Buying Avocado Toast



Posted above is a stock photo of several pieces of avocado toast. And it — according to one Australian real estate mogul — is responsible for the housing crisis among millennials.

Yes, avocado toast is apparently the reason millennials don’t buy houses these days. So says Australian real estate magnate Tim Gurner, according to 60 Minutes Australia.

“When I was trying to buy my first home, I wasn’t buying smashed avocado for $19 and four coffees at $4 each,” Gurner said.

Naturally, millennials and others took issue with the idea that avocado toast is the very thing that’s standing between them and their home owning dreams.

Twitter let Gurner have it even more after discovering that he got his start in real estate speculation with a $34,000 loan from his grandfather.
