Jack in the Box and Martha Stewart Feud Over Asian Fried Chicken Sandwich

The latest celebrity feud comes from two iconic figures in the world of food: Martha Stewart and Jack Box.

As part of Jack’s new game day promotion, the fictitious figurehead crashes a segment in Stewart’s studio kitchen during her demonstration on how to make a Banh Mi-inspired fried chicken sandwich. During the “taping” she conveniently comments to viewers that they would not be able to find something like her sandwich at a fast food restaurant.

This enrages Jack who storms the set and exclaims that his new “food truck series” actually carries an Asian-inspired crispy chicken sandwich, albeit not a Banh Mi.

The sandwich features crispy fried chicken, an Asian slaw, Gochujang mayo, served on a toasted baguette. Kind of an amalgam, taking elements from different Asian cuisines.

To add further layers to their dispute, text messages were leaked between the two icons:

Wonder if this beef will get squashed after a limited time, or if it’ll be another Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon feud. In the meantime, that sandwich doesn’t sound half bad.

Jack’s new food truck series will debut a trio of sandwiches inspired by gourmet food truck items.

This Alt-Right News Empire Is Making Kellogg’s Pay For Spurning Them

Breitbart News Network is going hard on the offensive to retaliate against food industry giant Kellogg’s.

Shortly after Kellogg’s announced they would be pulling their ads from Breitbart’s programming, the alt-right news agency launched a Twitter campaign, calling on its readers to #DumpKelloggs and sign a petition to boycott any product that Kellogg’s sells.

Kellogg’s is pulling the ads because they were alerted to consumers that ads were on Breitbart, which in the eyes of many, has been associated with articles promoting anti-Semitism, racism, and sexism. The cereal giant stated that they pulled the advertising since the values of Breitbart did not match their own company values.

Breitbart retaliated by stating that the removal of Kellogg’s ads wouldn’t make a difference in their revenue regardless, and accused the company of being an “out-of-touch corporation” trying to “cynically smear hard-working Americans.”

Since Breitbart’s call for boycotting Kellogg’s began, tons of Twitter users have shared the hashtag #DumpKelloggs in support of the campaign, and shares for the cereal company have been on a steady decline as more than 130,000 people have signed the boycott petition.

So far, it appears that the retaliation efforts are working in favor for Breitbart. However, this isn’t the first company to pull ads from the news website, with BMW and Allstate also pulling its ads.

Regardless, it’s noble to see companies like Kellogg’s standing up and doing what they believe to be right, regardless of the repercussions that may follow.

This Restaurant Owner Was A Dick To Vegans And It Brought In TONS Of Business

Ah, vegans. There are few sources of entertainment greater than the impassioned rantings of an angry vegan.

Paul Stenson, owner and operator of The White Moose Cafe in Dublin, Ireland, was a firsthand witness to this reaction, as a swarm of infuriated meat-haters bore down upon him with the furious clickety-clack of a thousand netroverts.

The entire online war began after Stenson posted a status to his cafe’s Facebook page, passive-aggressively mocking a vegan who came in and apparently had a hissy fit due to the restaurants lack of vegan-friendly foods.

The vegan woman this post was intended to taunt eventually saw it and wrote a ferocious review online. After other fellow vegans saw her plight, they quickly joined in to verbally trash the restaurant and the owner for his poor (in their opinion) sense of humor.

As word began to spread of Stenson’s response to the angry diner, more and more vegans and vegan supporters began thrashing the restaurant online, scorning the owner for being “disgusting, disrespectful and ignorant.”

After receiving a multitude of reviews from people who had never even eaten there, Stenson decided to take it a step further.

While his response may have sounded a bit aggressive and his sense of humor a bit rough around the edges, the sarcasm and use of ridiculously faulty logic is evidence enough that he does not intend to shoot vegans at point blank range. His joke caused so much more damage in repercussions that he eventually decided to grow up and apologize to the vegan community.

PSYCH! Paul Stenson, according to these posts from his restaurant’s Facebook page, gives little to no fucks about what people think of his actions. In fact, if you were to visit the White Moose Cafe’s Facebook page, you would see that even today, he is still urging these angry men and women to continue attacking him.

Not only did the vegans’ attempt to shut down White Moose Cafe fail miserably in grand fashion, but their ostentatious and misguided scrutiny also managed to give the restaurant an unreal amount of good publicity. Even amongst the hundreds of death threats Stenson has received, he still manages to keep his sense of humor about him, albeit a pretty dark sense of humor.

In the end, the vegans succeeded in failing to make a difference. Maybe we can get them to start bombarding Foodbeast, if we’re lucky.
