Guy Fieri gets a bad rap. Sure, he was accused of saying some anti-semetic and homophobic things, but he also officiated 101 gay weddings in one weekend back in 2015. Maybe, he's just a dude who runs his mouth and doesn't mean the things he says or they were taken out of context. I'm not here to defend the man's worst so BACK OFF.
For the uninitiated, Guy Fieri is the Corvette-driving, hedge-hog-haired, Warp-Tour-punk-band-singer-voiced, flame-shirt-wearing, sunglassses-on-the-back-of-his-head-sporting host of Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Guy is a larger-than-life character who has been regularly parodied by SNL, but has always been ridiculed for his vape-pen-come-to-life personality.
Comedian Shane Torres takes issue with this. In his forthcoming album (out September 8th on Comedy Central Records), he has a bit about how it's bullshit that we collectively hate Fieri because “looks like a Hot Topic manager moonlighting at a Fridays." Have a listen:
Apparently the glowing gremlin himself, Guy Fieri, has heard the bit because he just tweet this to Shane Torres.
Torres goes on in the bit to attack the bravado-ed actual-chef-turned writer/celebrity food eater, Anthony Bourdain. It's worth noting that Bourdain and Fieri actually have longstanding beef with each other. Bourdain once famously described Fieri as the product of“if Ed Hardy fucked a juggalo."
