Bankers Boycotting Mario Batali Over Hitler 'Metaphor'
You can charge a guy $600 for a tasting menu. You can compare a guy to Hitler. But if you do both to him, sooner or later, hes going to get mad.

Members of the finance industry are lashing out against Mario Batali after the celebrity chef likened their impact on the world to that of historys worst villains, Josef Stalin and Adolf Hitler. On Twitter, angry bankers are using a hashtag, #bataligate, to encourage each other to boycott Batali restaurants like Babbo and Del Posto, whose ultra-high prices make them popular expense account destinations.

On the other hand, Paula Dean is a Limbaugh fan, Guy Fieri and Bobby Flay are homophobic pricks.

Anthony Bourdain: Paula Deen is most dangerous person to America

That Anthony Bourdain sure knows how to get people talking. The No Reservations host sounds off on other food stars in TV Guide Magazine.

He has the strongest words for Paula Deen. The worst, most dangerous person to America is clearly Paula Deen, Bourdain says. She revels in unholy connections with evil corporations and shes proud of the fact that her food is f bad for you <...> plus, her food sucks.
