David Chang is sick and effin’ tired of anti-foie-gras activists threatening him and his restaurants, and kindly requests that they stop picking on the Momoverse and focus on real animal abusers like, say, McDonald’s.

But as of today we’ll be adding at least one foie gras dish to each of our menus in the coming week or so, and we’ll work to keep the prices of the dishes low, and we’ll donate any proceeds from those dishes to charity, including City Harvest and The Foodbank NYC … ” [Eater]
