Keke Palmer is not backtracking from her negative review of Chef Marcus Samuelsson‘s food at the Met Gala on Monday.
Keke went viral when she shared a photo of her wilted salad as part of her 3-course meal at the Met Gala.
Marcus — who helped select the 10 aspiring chefs to feed the hungry A-listers – told TMZ he was dismayed that Keke criticized the food he curated.
When a fan retweeted Page Six‘s article about chef Marcus Samuelsson defending his food on Wednesday, the 28-year-old actress replied, “I just have different taste buds! I love this Chef, sorry to this man.”
Keke first criticized the food on her Instagram Story after paying $30,000-$50,000 for her ticket.
She wrote: “The menu chile… This is why they don’t show y’all the food… I’m just playinnnn.”
Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour defended Marcus’s meatless menu in a statement to Page Six on Tuesday.
“We are so thrilled and grateful to have worked with Marcus Samuelsson on the menu for this year’s Met Gala. The plant-based menu featured recipes from 10 emerging New York-based chefs to celebrate the return of the city’s restaurant industry, which was devastated by the pandemic.”
Marcus is the head chef of Red Rooster in Harlem.
