Alton Brown »
To the thousands of you blowing up our FNH e-mail box asking why Alton Brown deleted his Twitter account, here’s what happened:
1. A random psycho stalker freak made a fake twitter account claiming to be Alton’s wife. The aforementioned random psycho stalker freak actually USED A PHOTO of Alton’s wife as their Twitter avatar. OH NO THEY DIDN’T.
2. This was Alton Brown, upon learning a random psycho stalker freak was posing as his wife on Twitter:
3. He then chewed the random psycho stalker freak out on Twitter, and promptly deleted his Twitter account.
Alton just posted this note up on his newly updated official website: “The way I see it, Twitter is like a big cocktail party. If I was at a cocktail party and someone puked on my wife’s shoes, odds are excellent that we’d leave. Does that mean I won’t attend any more cocktail parties? Maybe not. Maybe I’ll just have to figure out a way to host my own cocktail parties where people have to actually be accountable for their behavior.” Indeed.
As is so often the case with life, one bad apple spoiled the bunch. Alton drew a line in the sand, and when someone crossed it, he stuck to his morals and abandoned ship. You’ve got to respect a man who stands up for his family. At the end of the day, they’re all any of us really have in this world. AMIRIGHT?
