Throwin' shade goes both ways, Anthony Bourdain, but the hate mail you got was TOTALLY uncalled for!
Here's what Anthony had to say about it:
"A year ago, before she announced that she has diabetes, I dared to suggest that the food she was advocating was dangerous for you, and I received a lot of scary mail and Facebook posts. It was the first time I've ever been frightened."
Yeah right! You're telling us you weren't scared shizzless over ghosts or bears or the dark when you were a kid?? Ha!
He admits, however, that it was probably his own words that got him into trouble with the Deen Diehards:
"I don't know what my problem is, honestly. Why can't I just live and let live? It's a personal failing."
It was probably the way he said it that we disagree with most, because honestly, the message was correct: we do not condone what Paula Deen did as far as hiding her diabetes from her viewers while continuing to push the food that gave it to her in the first place. AND THEN to only come out to back a diabetes drug to make money off of it. It's greedy and unconscionable.
That being said, Anthony didn't have to be so ruthless in getting his point across!
