Farofeiro

A "redneck" who goes to the beach for a day, brings his own food and has no consideration for anyone else around. He/she generally are the typical light-skinned irritating day tourists that crowd the beaches in Brazil.

It has turned into a term to describe people who are inconsiderate to others and don't want to fit in.

Those farofeiros who are always eating chicken with farofa, make so much noise, don't clean up after themselves and have no consideration for other people!

João is such a farofeiro, he could care less about anyone else around him!
