Ordeal for Approval
Johnny California (pictured lying in the dirt outside of the Yellowjack bar for reasons unknown) is one of the most well-known figures in the state of San Andreas and possibly beyond.
With a reported 2.2 million Twitter followers and 1 million TikTok followers (verification pending), “JC” is much in demand both on social media and on the streets for his personal “seal of approval” granted to local businesses which he deems worthy of endorsing to his fans and followers.
However, this accolade comes at a cost. Literally. Following the exchange of contact information, Mr. California will approach businesses with the opportunity of receiving his seal of approval in return for a cash sum – turning this seemingly harmless social media trend into a quasi-business contact. However, where such business is usually conducted behind closed doors, recent negotiations have spilled out on to the streets and according to multiple eyewitnesses… turned aggressive.
It is understood that the UwU Cat Café is the latest business to receive JC’s Seal of Approval and, according to reports, it is believed that it was acquired for a lower price than the previous holder of the stamp – the local branch of Burger Shot. Multiple sources have confirmed a public altercation between Mr. California and well-known patty-flipper Sid Hunter.
