Anthony Bourdain Backpedals on Hate for Guy Fieri, but Can’t Stand Trump
Anthony Bourdain has historically had no problem with being totally, bluntly honest about other TV chefs and personalities, and recently was called out for throwing serious shade at Guy Fieri at his standup comedy tour last summer, saying, “I wonder about him. He’s 52 years old and still rolling around in the flame outfit.” Ouch. But as it turns out, Bourdain harbors no ill will toward the enthusiastic Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host.
“I have no hate in my heart for the guy. He doesn’t make me angry,” Bourdain said in an interview with The New York Daily News, mentioning that the two TV personalities grabbed dinner a short while ago.
But don’t worry, Bourdain fanboys: the No Reservations host still isn’t afraid to get salty: “He’s just low-hanging fruit. He’s a rich and deep source of comedy,” Bourdain continued.
And while on the subject of TV stars, Bourdain could not resist taking a jab at Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.
“Credible hair and something resembling a human skin tone would be a prerequisite [for my vote],” the TV personality and chef quipped.
