“Cash me outside, how bow dah?”
You know we love getting down with finding out about the mysteries behind certain trends or memes. Such as the recent “Om Telolet Om” Indonesian phenomenon that seemingly came out of nowhere but took the interwebs by storm, confusing a throng of netizens in its trail.
We’ve seen the tweets, images, Bitmoji, Facebook posts, Facebook statuses, and Instagram captions, but we never really knew where they came from.

Until now, that is.
Meet Danielle Peskowitz Bregoli, the mouthy 13-year-old who was solely responsible for making the “cash” phrase, “Cash me outside, how bow dah?” famous. The teen appeared on an “out-of-control teen” episode of “Dr. Phil”, an American daily talk show where clinical and forensic psychologist Dr. Phillip C. McGraw deals with real issues.
On the episode, Danielle discussed her anger issues and “out-of-control behaviour” in the presence of her anxious mother, but openly insulted the audience by calling them “hoes” before challenging them to “Cash me outside, how bow dah?” because they were laughing at her.
Watch the moment in the video below, at the 3:20 mark:
Danielle’s mother, Barbara Ann, later explained that her daughter’s weird, almost gibberish-sounding accent was “street dialogue”, saying, “Catch her outside means she’ll go outside and do what she has to do.” Which means that Danielle was threatening to beat them all up outdoors, basically.
But instead of resulting in a good enough intervention to “fix” her behavioural/social problems, the episode propelled her to fame and turned her into an interwebs star. And that’s not to say that the “she thug wannabe” wasn’t already pretty famous-ish to begin with – she has over 800,000 followers on her Facebook page and 3.3 million followers on her Instagram. Did we also mention that she has been busy selling merchandise of her infamous line?
More recently, news about Danielle surfaced once again when she got into a squabble with a passenger a Spirit Airlines flight out of Los Angeles a couple of days ago. Danielle admitted to punching the female passenger who she claimed pushed her mother. As far as we know, Spirit Airlines has banned Danielle, her mom, and the other woman for life.
Well, how bout dah?
