The food court is named Eataly, not Mario or
Batali. Derp.

Yes, the food court is called Early, but after the allegations broke, workers had to spend time scrubbing Batali's name from every last place it'd been inscribed or pasted in the place.

Why would you hope that hundreds of service industry workers lose their job?

there are plenty of other restaurants who will hire people and whose owners don't assault women.

The food is good and employs hundreds who in turn support hundreds, possibly thousands.

Your taxes pay for ICBM's, Idiotic Military Interventions, Subsidizing Freeloaders and the Rich. - Should you go out of business for supporting that?

Don't let one idiot's mistake push you into hysteria about wishing closing off the income of hundreds of working class men and women.

No big loss to the city if the brainchild of a goof who can't keep it in his pants and serves overpriced Italian peasant food cooked by underpaid Latinos to tourists and people who don't know any better goes under.

Why not extend it to every celebrity chef shithole anywhere? Or fast food joints. Or Dunkie’s.

I grow, process and cook all my own food myself because I refuse to be a tool to the restaurant/supermarket industry, now if you'll excuse me I think I hear my sprouts crying out to be watered from my rain bucket

Why? Mario was thrown out a long time ago and has nothing to do with it.

I always imagined that however humiliating it is to be groped, that the memory must be intensified when recalling that that the molester was fat, wore a a pony tail, fleece vest and orange Crocs.

...someone should feel worse because they're groped by an ugly person with no sense of style? Because being groped by a pretty person is kinda ok? Where are you going with this?

How would you feel if you had to watch your abuser have his fat ass kissed all day long in the media and by the City merely because his only contribution to society comes from an ability to play with food?

I can see where it would bother an abuse survivor to see their abuser fawned on, but I'm not sure why they should feel worse he's fugly (or by implication, why they should mind less if he's pretty).
