After Questlove, drummer for The Roots, Tweeted about the questionable menu featured at NBC yesterday in honor of Black History Month, NBC’s cook Leslie Calhoun doesn’t seem to understand what all the fuss is about!
“All I wanted to do was make a meal that everyone would enjoy — and that I eat myself. Questlove, who I serve every day and who enjoys my food, requested the neck bone [cooked in] the black-eyed peas and fried chicken, then got off the line, saying, ‘This is racist.’
“The next thing you know, people were taking pictures of the sign and asking all the other black people in the cafeteria if this was racist. They said that it wasn’t.”
NBC did end up removing the sign and apologized for anyone who was offended by it.
