But not for what you think you should be ashamed for.
”I’ve struggled with weight all my life, and probably always will. But I was on my most recent book tour I was shocked by the number of overweight families,” he says. “People would come up to me and say, ‘Oh, we love the Food Network.’ Well, no (expletive); did you eat the TV? There’s only four of you and you can’t ride in an elevator together. I’ll probably make fat people angry, but we need, as a culture, to be ashamed. It’s not “… healthy.” http://www.ecorazzi.com/2008/09/10/food-star-alton-brown-talks-sustainability/
You’ll probably make fat people angry? To quote you verbatim: Well, no shit!
You make your money by selling FOOD to people, fat and skinny alike. You don’t care who pays for your books or watches your TV programs because it adds to your fortune, a fortune people like me, FAT people like me, are contributing to. And then you have the audacity to say in an interview, “Did you eat the TV?”
You HYPOCRITE! You have the unmitigated gall to verbally humiliate fat people, the people who pay your salary, both directly and indirectly?
You don’t like yourself when you are fat? Fine. Do something about it. But to make your money on people like me and then to publically ridicule us?
Yeah, your bosses will be getting a letter from me. And hopefully, from a LOT of fat people. This isn’t the first time you’ve talked smack about fat people. At least the other time you seemed to be polite about it (from what I heard, not having seen the interview itself, I can’t attest to that from first hand knowledge). But now?
You are on my shit list. And no, the expletive isn’t deleted.
