Planned Parenthood pins worn by all ‘Top Chef’ judges in season finale: ‘Just stick with food’
The host of “Top Chef” defended her desire to “showcase” Planned Parenthood on Thursday’s season finale by choosing to wear a Planned Parenthood pin on camera — along with the other three judges.
A Twitter user asked host Padma Lakshmi “Why does politics have to invade everything?” after noting that she and judges Gail Simmons, Tom Colicchio, and Graham Elliot were wearing the Planned Parenthood pins.
The Twitter user then quipped, “Come on just stick with food. Crap can’t we relax?”
But Lakshmi — who’s also a judge on the show — apparently was in no mood to trade jokes: “No … we can’t relax,” she tweeted back. “We need food for survival, we also need privacy to deal with our own bodies as we see fit.”
No @petewitte we can’t relax. We need food for survival, we also need privacy to deal with our own bodies as we see fit.
