Food Network has disowned one of its hosts, Josh Denny, due to describing himself as pro-life in a series of tweets.
Josh Denny, a former frontman for Food Network’s “Ginormous Food” describes himself as pro-life in a controversial thread celebrating the Texas Abortion bill that blocks abortions once a heartbeat is detected at 6 weeks. “After six weeks. You can still get one (an abortion) for six weeks. Calm down, broads. You still have six weeks to decide your life is more important than anyone else’s,” Denny posted to Twitter Wednesday.
Food Network went to Twitter and pinned its tweet about Denney stating “For those asking: Our work relationship with Josh Denny ended years ago and we removed all episodes he hosted at that time. His views do not reflect our company values and we regret giving him a platform.”
Denny stated his employers were being hypocrites in their attempt to distance themselves from him and his humor. He tweeted “You knew my views and my style of comedy when you hired me. My views represent the beliefs of half of this country.”
When called out for his inflammatory statements he did admit they were “very incendiary” but also refused to apologize. He stated “I take responsibility for it” but also stated without taking back “I said those things” (The New York Post).
Denny told The Daily Wire that he understands some of his comments might be perceived as edgy and offensive but stood by them, noting that “nothing is off limits” when it comes to comedy.
