Trump was seen mingling with renowned actor Mark Wahlberg and acclaimed director Mel Gibson. However, despite Fieri’s notable philanthropic efforts, a barrage of criticism came from individuals on the left who expressed their outrage at his seemingly affable interaction with the former president.
Liberal TikTok influencer Harry Sisson took to Twitter to voice his concerns, tweeting, “Guy Fieri was seen with Donald Trump last night and my only question is: what’s wrong with these celebrities? Why are they trying to normalize Trump’s behavior? He’s the twice indicted, twice impeached, disgraced former president who’s a sexual abuser. He’s not a good guy.”
Another notable figure, liberal activist Laura Chapin, also chimed in on Twitter, criticizing Fieri’s decision to associate with Trump: “Congratulations to @GuyFieri for completely trashing his brand by gripping & grinning with Trump last night. Your audience/fan base isn’t Trumpers, bruh.”
Even Jack White, former lead singer of White Stripes, expressed his objection to those who treated Trump with any degree of respect.
Taking to Instagram, White wrote, “Anybody who ‘normalizes’ or treats this disgusting fascist, racist, con man, disgusting piece of s*** Trump with any level of respect is ALSO disgusting in my book. That’s you Joe Rogan, you Mel Gibson, you Mark Wahlberg, you Guy Fieri. This is a statement from me, not a discussion/debate.”
The controversy surrounding Fieri’s photograph with Trump sparked further criticism on social media platforms. Detractors vehemently expressed their disapproval, with one individual stating, “Trump ruins everything. You can’t shake hands with racist rapist Nazis — the stain won’t wash off.”
Calls for a boycott against Fieri and his renowned “Flavortown” restaurants gained traction on Twitter, with one tweet garnering over 16k “likes” and 7.2k retweets. The tweet read, “Hey @FoodNetwork, I knew that Guy Fieri was a bigot, but I didn’t know that he was a Fascist too. Boycott Guy Fieri!”
Insane Woke Backlash For Guy Fieri For DARING To Shake Hands With Donald Trump At UFC Event!
The overblown reaction of liberals to a mere photograph reveals the intense and divisive nature of the left. It is disheartening to see such passionate outrage over something so trivial when our nation is grappling with crucial problems like inflation and a child trafficking epidemic.
They should refocus their efforts on addressing real issues rather than getting caught up in the endless cycle of whining and complaining over celebrities and their selfies.
