Twenty-eight of the Best Twitter Reactions to the New York Times’ Guy Fieri Takedown

By
How's he doing today?

If you're like us, you were woken up at 2 a.m. by a call from your 80-year-old grandmother in Butte wondering who exactly this Pete Wells person is and what did Guy Fieri ever do to him that would cause the New York Times to publish such a negative review of the Food Network host's sprawling 500-seat restaurant in Times Square. The review — in which Wells compares the house margaritas to radiator fluid and formaldehyde and ruminates, in an all-question format, about the exact origins of Guy's "Donkey Sauce" — has now been tweeted around the world. As should be expected, Wells has some new fans, and Fieri has some staunch supporters here in New York. But the rest of the county? Let's just see what @teenmom4evr has to say about all of this.

Daaaaamn, Pete Wells!







Update: Fieri himself has responded to the review.
