Normally I don’t give negative comments on my site too much attention. I love the fact that people have all sorts of opinions and it’s what makes the world a more interesting place.
After all, if everybody were like me and you, it would make for a pretty boring existence.
But when a chef calls us hypochondriac frauds…well, it raises my interest a little bit.
There is someone who calls himself Chef Brizzle who has taken time out of his day to leave two comments on this blog in the past few months.
Last may, I wrote a tongue in cheek post called 17 Gluten/Celiac Headlines I’d Love to See. Chef Brizzle left this little gem as a comment:
“The Attention Starved Hippies Finally Admit That They Are Faking!! All So-Called Celiacs Are To Be Stoned Today!!”
I figured it was a spammer or somebody extremely mentally unstable, so I let it pass.
But yesterday, our friend left another comment on my post about the Today Show calling us picky eaters. Here’s what he had to say:
“I applaud the Today Show for exposing you hypochondriac frauds! If you don’t want to consume gluten, then stay home! Stop forcing your hippie dietary restrictions on other people. You are not special. Everyone laughs at you and calls you idiots when you go to a restaurant. Go eat a bag of flour!!!”
So Chef Brizzle (if he’s even a real chef or a real person) is an angry, angry man who has an ax to grind and he’s using our platform to do it.
That’s ok…we’re fair game.
But so is Chef Brizzle.
What would you say to Chef Brizzle if given the opportunity? And please, no need to hold back.
I’ll be sure to pass along your comments to our friend.
