World News – US – Alton Brown apologizes for « Flippant » about the Holocaust


Food Network host Alton Brown apologized today for a tweet he posted last night referring to the Holocaust. Brown began tweeting about food the day before the election, but his tweets quickly turned into political rhetoric over the past week, culminating last night in A widely criticized tweet comparing the current political climate to the Holocaust While it wouldn’t take a celebrity chef’s taste to reveal notes of fascism baked in this country, the joke that has since been deleted, asking whether a camp uniform would be planned, like the one in Auschwitz, was offensive and unpleasant. Brown tried to amend this in a new post Wednesday morning that wrote: “I apologize for the flimsy reference I made to the Holocaust in my tweet last night.” “It was not a reference for me to the humor effect but rather reflects how deeply my fear of our country is. It was a very poor use of judgment and bad taste.”
