When it comes to celebrity chefs and food media personalities, a popular observation about life in the public eye applies: Haters gon’ hate.
This phenomenon is no more apparent than on a recent Reddit thread where visitors commented on the question, “What celebrity do you have an irrational hatred for?” Right after Will.I.Am and Megan Fox, one user points out the “entire Food Network minus Alton Brown.”
Brown seems to earn respect for the food-science knowledge he displayed on Good Eats. Bobby Flay and Guy Fieri, on the other hand, are among those who generates the most hate. Sandra Lee is called out on her semi-homemade approach and Rachael Ray’s shorthand for extra virgin olive oil (“EVOO”) seems to make people super heated.
We haven’t seen this much hate toward the Food Network gathered all in one place since Food Nework Humor.
But seriously, guys: How can you feel anger in your heart when you look at these faces?
