Patti LaBelle and James Wright Chanel

R&B icon Patti LaBelle made good on her promise to fete Youtube star James Wright Chanel at her Philadelphia mansion for Thanksgiving.

James Wright became an overnight Black Twitter sensation when he sang Patti’s praises while eating 2 of her sugary, high calorie sweet potato pies.

Patti angered many of Wright’s supporters when she refused to cut him a check for the free promo that resulted in the pies selling out at Walmart stores everywhere.

While Wright’s story is good for laughs, what isn’t funny is the fact that Patti’s sweet potato pies are loaded with sugar (25 grams per slice) and calories (nearly 400 calories per slice).

According to the CDC, black people lead all categories for heart disease, diabetes, poor diet, lack of exercise, and excessive alcohol use.

We must do better.
