|Anthony Bourdain gets burned by Guy Fieri|
Anthony Bourdain has never shied away from sharing his opinions, regardless of how offensive they may be to his targets. Among the celebrity chefs that Bourdain has criticized are Rachel Ray, Alice Waters, and most notably Paula Deen, who he labeled as "the worst, most dangerous person to America". But there was one celebrity chef that Bourdain should have avoided: Chef Guy Fieri. This time, it was Bourdain who took the hit.
In a charity roast of Bourdain, co-hosted by Willie Geist of MSNBC and Chef Mario Batali, at the NYC Wine & Food Festival, Guy Fieri decided nothing was off limits. Fieri started out light enough with cracks like "You've taken cooking, TV and comedy without ever being good at any of them." But he may have hit below the belt by bringing up Bourdain’s self-confessed past drug use. Fieri quipped "Anthony ... I hear you’re the only one in [culinary] class who did most of his cooking with a spoon and a Bic lighter", according to TMZ.
Anthony Bourdain did have a chance to settle the score, which he led by thanking everyone for his "public colonoscopy". At least we know he can take it almost as well as he dishes it out.
What are your thoughts on Guy Fieri’s statement? Was he too harsh or did he serve Bourdain his just desserts?
