More hot wa­ter for Bour­dain

Ottawa Citizen - - YOU -

An­thony Bour­dain is push­ing back after another con­tro­versy over po­ten­tially of­fen­sive Cana­dian nick­names. The celebrity chef ’s CNN show, Parts Un­known, aired an episode Sun­day on the cul­tural and culi­nary her­itage of New­found­land and Labrador. Some­one asked Bour­dain on Twit­ter why two Que­bec chefs were with him when he vis­ited the prov­ince last fall. Bour­dain said the two “Frenchies” were the ones “solely re­spon­si­ble for en­tic­ing me there.” That sparked more con­tro­versy, com­ing after the show had al­ready taken heat for us­ing the term “New­fie” in a now deleted tweet pro­mot­ing the episode.
