After daring to utter an uncomfortable truth about life in the big city, actress Jennifer Aniston is in hot water with New York City cabbies.

Responding to a People magazine question about adding cologne to her new fragrance line, Aniston said, “I’m not big on it. I’ve probably got [post-traumatic stress disorder] from cab rides in New York City that ended in pure suffocation.”

A seemingly innocuous ‘funny’ response that has cabbies everywhere in a tizzy.

And they aren’t about to take this lying down.

New York City’s taxi drivers responded to Aniston’s comment on Friday via Allan Fromberg of the Taxi and Limousine Commission, who told Page Six, “Hundreds of thousands of people get in and out of NYC’s yellow cabs each day. Some leave behind umbrellas and cellphones, and some leave a bit too much cologne. My advice to Ms. Aniston would be for her to create a yellow taxi-themed cologne that is as subtle and sophisticated as she is, and call it ‘Common Scents’!”

Taking a stab at Aniston’s privileged life, Page Six also opined, “And while we’re quite sure that Aniston’s yoga mat don’t stink, given the choice between the scent of a yellow cab or her steaming superiority, we know which we’d choose. (When, by the way, was the last time she rode in one of these supposed taxis? We only ever recall seeing her around town blocking traffic in a chauffeured Escalade).”

Sure she’s rich and privileged, but let’s not ‘wealth-shame’ Aniston here, especially when she’s basically stating a universal truth. Maybe the actress hasn’t actually ridden a New York City cab in quite a while, but can everyone who has agree that the experience is an unforgettable one?
