Gov. Scott Walker gets roasted for BBQ tweet

Twitter food shamers pile on

The internet doesn’t believe in taking holidays off.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker learned that the hard way on Memorial Day after posting a photo on Twitter of some kebabs he was firing up on the grill along with the caption “grilling out!”

Social media food shamers were quick to pile on, noting that the meat and vegetable mixture could be the fast track toward a salmonella contamination, or criticizing the governor for the meal’s lack of seasoning and for mixing chicken and steak on the same kebab. 

It’s not the first time Walker has been roundly roasted for tweeting about food. Last year, the internet was quick to take note of his photo of a ham sandwich on National Sandwich Day.
