A post on Reddit asked what people's thoughts were on Auckland. Now it's been spread around on Newhub & the NZ Herald, by lazy journalists creating news reports out of Reddit.
It has really brought out the worst in people in the Facebook comments section. Like this one from Denise Franklin:
Ugh... Auckland sucking the rest of the country dry... Cut them off then see how long they last on soy milk.
Auckland didn't even ask people. Get a life!
