Cancel Culture: John Kruk attacked for putting ranch on steak
Cancel culture has officially come for John Kruk. The former Phillie, current color analyst, and national treasure took to Twitter to ask a simple question about how his followers like to eat a steak. He was swiftly met with backlash.
The tweet that put Kruk in the crosshairs:
Only in present-day America can a man’s late-night musings on how he likes his steaks bring baying hounds to his doorstep. Usually the debate is between medium-rare enjoyers and well-done troglodytes, but this has been a rather unusual October.
The hate quickly rolled in and soon his quote tweets were full of quips about his apparently treasonous tastes. They ranged from joking he’d been hacked by Russia to how you “should never meet your heroes.” All very funny, very original jokes that weren’t lame at all.
While it’s incredibly easy to dogpile on the timeline, I’m not one to be negative about anything related to the Phillies during this special run they’ve been on. So in that spirit, I’ll refrain from jumping in on this one and will not be posting this slander. Check his quote tweets if you need your negativity fix, sicko.
That said, how dare any of you judge Krukker. The man is a Phillies legend and can eat whatever he damn well pleases.
If you play like this in a Phillies uniform, you can do what you want as far as I’m concerned:
Would I eat ranch on a steak? Absolutely not, it sounds horrible. But John Kruk is an American and, more importantly, a Philadelphian, and it is his god-given right to enjoy a steak his way.
So go ahead, make your silly jokes and show them to your friends. I know Kruk doesn’t care.
We’ve got a fucking World Series to win. Enjoy it
