Humanitarian Chef Allegedly Kicked Out Of Restaurant Because Of Ivanka Trump—And We're Livid
4 months ago

Celebrity Chef Jose Andres has made a name for himself as a humanitarian, particularly in Puerto Rico after the island was hit by devastating hurricanes this past summer. To date, his organization José Andrés’s World Central Kitchen has served over 3 million meals to Puerto Ricans in need, more than any other organization.

Despite this, Andres was reportedly thrown out of Cafe Milano in Washington D.C. over the weekend, allegedly because he made guest Ivanka Trump feel uncomfortable. 

Andres tweeted on Sunday:

Jorge Guajardo tweeted a play-by-play of how it all went down...

To him, it was nothing short of a betrayal:

Twitter was understandably outraged...

Although not everyone had Andres's back:

While the White House would not comment, apparently Ivanka did reach out to Andres and insist she was not involved in removing him from the event...

Cafe Milano also reached out to Andres on Twitter, absolving Ivanka:

Without having been there, it's hard to know whether this was a simple misunderstanding, a lack of communication after-the-fact, a malicious removal, or something else entirely. 

Instead of arguing ad infinitum, Andres instead decided to take a different path:

Well played, sir, well played.
