Guy Fieri gets a lot of flack for his flame-emblazoned bowling shirts, 90s boy band haircut, and his dorky catch phrases, but are any of those things deserving of true hatred?
Comedian Shane Torres seems to believe that all the Fieri hate is stupid, and furiously defends him in a hilarious five minute joke that actually makes a lot of sense.
Torres released the clip as a teaser to his upcoming Comedy Central-backed album, “Established 1981,” and probably spent way more time defending Guy Fieri than any human should.
“Can someone please explain to me what the f*ck Guy Fieri ever did to anyone?” Torres says to start the joke. ” ‘Cause people shit on that dude all the time, and as far as I can tell, all he ever did was follow his dreams.”
He goes on to point out the internet hate Fieri gets, even though he does not discriminate in his hiring, pays workers above minimum wage, and even donates “pretzel-making machines to inner-city schools so they can have fundraisers.”
“… but because he has flames on his shirt, everyone shits on him like if he’s a member of Nickelback.”
Torres makes a lot of sense. Fieri is a legend and should be treated as such, but we can never get rid of the Fieri memes. Those are just as beloved as Fieri should be.
