If you come for barbecue Twitter, you best not miss.
Unfortunately, Vice Magazine’s food-focused site Munchies seems to have done exactly that. And, well, people on the internet have some rulings .
Like an under-smoked brisket unceremoniously dumped on the world’s plate, person at the media company thought it was a good idea to tweet out a fine enough article titled “Why Is Brooklyn Barbecue Taking Over the World? ” with the following photo 😛 TAGEND
The undeniably sad stack of meat calls to head many things — loneliness, hopelessnes, desperation, a misguided try at connection — but none of them are a regional style of BBQ reigning supreme over this troubled earth.
While Munchies had to be aware of that fact, and could very well have chosen the photo as an intentional dunk on Brooklyn barbecue , no quantity of context in the world could avoid that tweet from getting ratioed straight into the wood-burning burn pit of inferno. At the time of this writing it had 280 retweets and over 5,000 responds. And, yes, “Brooklyn BB”Q is now trending nationally on Twitter.
The tweet/ headline combo is undeniably a pain thing, but there is still joy to be found in the situation. Specifically, that is, in the tweets mocking it.
Even The New York Times ‘s Mike Isaac( currently on book leave) isn’t having it.
Of course , no Twitter outrage would be complete without the backlash to the backlash. And we got that — with one novelist suggesting that the entire degree of the article is that Brooklyn BBQ in fact sucks( hence the shitty photo ).
Others supposed this entire thing was all much ado about nothing.
the worst kind of twitter is always Several Hundred Mostly Media People Are Bored Enough To Get Run Up About A Tweet For A Couple Hours twitter and it’s not even close, i’m sorry

Either way, I’m sure we can all will be voting in favour of the fact that all barbecue — Brooklyn included — is horrible.
