As if dating in New York wasn’t hard enough, now we have to worry about men exploiting our love of Broad City for nefarious means. Is nothing sacred?!

During a comedy set last week, Ilana Glazer shared a story about a friend of a friend who went out with a guy claiming to be a Broad City writer. The con was so elaborate that the guy (whom Glazer calls out by name) sent her a photo of himself with Abbi and Ilana that he had taken at a comedy show back in 2014, as well as a photo purportedly taken on set that day. He also told her “writing in the room this season was weak,” which probably should have been a red flag.

“No men work on Broad City,” Glazer warns. “Don’t fuck a dude cause you think he works on Broad City.” Words to live by!
