NFNS: Next Food Network Star Finalist’s Offensive Remarks

May 29, 2008 at 1:01 am 1 comment

In a recent interview with Patsy Kreitman of Edible TV ( Kevin Roberts, one of the new contestants to be the Next Food Network Star, referred to boxed mac and cheese as “white trash boxed version.”

The phrase “white trash” is a racist phrase equal to any that the media has declared unspeakable.  So where is the uproar over this elists’ foul words?  Well, I guess it is starting right here.

The beauty of Kreitman’s enlightening interview is that Robert’s goes on to say that his favorite Food Network personality is Ming Tsai, a talented chef to say the least, but also one who has not been on TFN for years.  When asked how he is “different from the finalists in previous seasons,” he admits that he has never scene the show.  The capper is that after referring to anyone who has ever eaten boxed mac and cheese as white trash he goes on to say that he would like to cook for, “The Dalai Lama, so I could wrack his brain about compassion and empathy.”

I honestly have no idea what to say to that.
