When it comes to celebrity feuds, nothing beats the weird beef between Guy Fieri and Anthony Bourdain.
Bourdain has taken plenty of shots at Fieri over the years, calling Fieri’s restaurant a “terror-dome” while also stating he’d be the resulting product “if Ed Hardy fucked a juggalo.” Bourdain also made fun of the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives star’s infamous “flame outfit” during a July interview with Atlanta Magazine. In September, he defended his constant jabs to People, saying, “The day you can’t tell jokes about Guy Fieri, comedy as we know it is dead. I tell jokes about those guys; it’s what I do.”
Fieri responded to Bourdain’s bullying in a new interview with GQ:
“I don’t like him making fun of people, and I don’t like him talking shit. And he’s never talked shit to my face. I know he’s definitely gotta have issues, ’cos the average person doesn’t behave that way. It’s not that I’m not open to the reality that the food world was like this from a few people’s perspective. It’s just, What are you doing? What is your instigation? You have nothing else to fucking worry about than if I have bleached hair or not? I mean, fuck.”
It wasn’t not funny, Tony! But, Bourdain is right; this is what he does. Fieri isn’t his only target. Man vs. Food’s Adam Richman, Paula Deen and Ina Garten have all endured ridicule from the Parts Unknown host.
