Foodbeast.com – Celebrity chef Mario Batali was accused of sexual misconduct by four women, shocking and saddening the food world. While it is still sinking in that the world-renowned chef was probably a scumbag, some of his colleagues have given some early commentary on the situation.
While many have been silent, you know that Anthony Bourdain had something to say. Plus, a few others, such as Giada De Laurentiis and the cast of The Chew, briefly spoke, as the overall feeling still seems to be that of surprise.
Perhaps the most vocal so far has been fellow super chef and globetrotter Anthony Bourdain.
When Bourdain first heard the news, he said he felt “guilty as fuck,” for not knowing sooner, as apparently he is the lord of all things food, and everything should be run by him.
Sunday night, Bourdain tweeted out, “…and Monday, I’m afraid, isn’t going to get any better,” and “No. Trust me. Monday is really gonna suck.”
It seems Bourdain got a heads up on the news and was really distraught.
Yeaaaa finding out your friend is a scumbag can’t be a good feeling at all.
