You know what I really hate? Celebrity adoration. The blatant oozing, gushing, and fawning over random people you don’t even know, simply because they’re getting paid to entertain you. These days, perhaps nowhere is this activity more evident than on Twitter. You see, when we ordinary folk tweet that our steak was delicious or that we’re feeling under the weather, we’re usually met with a few genuine replies from friends or family members. However, when celebrities tweet – regardless of what they tweet – they’re met with hundreds of ridiculous replies from creepy people making laughably ridiculous requests of them (“come to my house and cook me dinner!”) and/or sharing boring anecdotes about their lives in a desperate attempt to relate to them (“My mom saw the back of your head on a plane once!”).
I used Twitter Search this morning to see what people were tweeting to their favorite celebrity chefs, and almost barfed at the results. Here are the 8 stupidest @ mentions to celebrity chefs from the past week, along with my replies which so eloquently detail what I would have tweeted back. Of course, celebrities have to politely reply for fear of tainting their images. However, I don’t have such restrictions. God, I love not being famous!
(Note: these are simply my sarcastic replies, and in no way reflect what the chefs may or may not have been thinking.)
Really, Twitterverse? Come on. I’m not saying you can’t like celebrities; I’m just saying there is a line that needs to be drawn. DRAW IT, PEOPLE.
