But for chefs and foodies, they sure watered it down, saying:

“Yesterday, allegations of past improper behavior surfaced about our own Mario Batali, and ABC asked him to step away from the show while those allegations are reviewed.”

Considering he admitted to the behavior, and it’s been corroborated by multiple others already they sure made it sound like he’s coming back.

We’re hardly food experts, but as public statement aficionados, we’d say this could have stood to be saltier AND more plain.
