Jamie Oliver In Tears As American Fatties Reject His FoodJamie Oliver and his soap box have travelled far and wide over the last few years in an attempt to get tubby people everywhere to shape up and improve their health.
Obviously some have reacted better to his advice than others, but nothing could have prepared the Essex chef for the hostile reception he received in America’s fattest city, Huntington, West Virginia, (where more than half of residents are obese).
The townsfolk were openly hostile when the good food campaigner started lecturing them as a part of his new show Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. However reports that someone tried to eat him are as yet unconfirmed.
According to even-handed and liberal journalists at The Daily Mail, Oliver wept as he confessed that he didn’t know how to confront the chunky population.
“They don’t understand me. They don’t know why I’m here,” he said. However we think they knew all too well why he was in town, and decided to act before he compromised their burger resources.
A production source told The Sun: “His tears was the lowest we’ve ever seen Jamie. He is normally so upbeat but the scale of this challenge got to him. Everywhere he turned, he was faced with obstacles. People were outwardly hostile to some of the ideas he put forward.”
It has been reported that some members of the local press even warned him to steer clear of their community.
“We don’t want to sit around and eat lettuce all day,” said one radio presenter as he tucked into his fifth pie of the morning.
