Anthony Bourdain on Paula Deen: What a Con Artist!

by at . Comments

Safe to say Anthony Bourdain is unmoved by Paula Deen's diabetes diagnosis.

Bourdain, who once called the butter-loving chef the butter-loving chef the most dangerous person in America, mocked her on Twitter for poisoning the public with her unhealthy food, then turning around and trying to profit off of it.

In a hilarious, obvious Twitter attack on Deen, Bourdain wrote, "Thinking of getting into the leg-breaking business, so I can profitably sell crutches later."

Bourdain is upset that the high-fat, high-sugar recipe queen announced she has diabetes and subsequently became a paid spokeswoman for a diabetes medication.

There are reports that Deen knew for years about her diabetic condition and can't even eat her own dishes, but continued to hock her recipes on the Food Network.

All while negotiating a deal to endorse a diabetes-fighting drug. Obviously, Bourdain sees a serious conflict of interest in Deen's behavior and isn't mincing words.

Given that he calls her "dangerous" and "proud of the fact that her food is f**king bad for you," it's no surprise he's calling her out, and we don't expect it'll stop.

Anthony Bourdain certainly likes to drink and swear but his show somehow manages to be both entertaining and educational. He's definitely the smarter of the two. Also he's the one who looks half normal. Paula Deen looks like she needs an exorcism ASAP.

With obesity at an all time high, once she learned she had diabetesit would have made sense for Ms. Deen to adapt her cooking to accommodate this. What an example she could have been, instead of continuing to lead her followers down that pure butter yellow brick road. Her cooking is certainly delicious, but it's special occasion cooking for anyone trying to feed their family normally healthy foods. As for Anthony Bourdain, who I think is very entertaining, I doubt if he makes a dent in her complacency. Not as long as she can probably buy and sell him.

It's simple to me folks. We are not all ignorant cattle being led to slaughter by any bodys tv show. We all have the ability to make a choice of what we eat. I do agree that children need guidance, but that is the job of the parents or whoever is is responsible for them. I personally do not take either side in this debate. However for me, Paula merely teaches people how to cook food that has been found in American homes for centuries. Good or bad is for the viewer to decide not another tv show host who is only concerned about ratings in my opinion.

You have to use common sense in what food you decide to buy. One look at Paula Deen and her recipes and I knew the food was not healthy. I have never been a fan or purchased her food or recipes. I always pass over her deserts at Wal-Mart which did go on sale after Anthony Bourdain started publicly criticizing her products for being unhealthy.
