Everyone's favorite food blogger is in some hot water after coming out as a verified Internet troll — and during his own birthday week, no less. Jonathan Cheban, friend of Kim Kardashian, spent the better part of his birthday weekend leaving mean comments on an a fellow food blogger's page, Sophisticated Vegan. The trolling saga has made headlines because of Cheban's incredibly rude, immature, and sexist comments to the complete stranger.
Six days ago, The Sophisticated Vegan (Nancy Sidley) left a not-so-nice comment on a photo of Cheban on Instagram, calling him a "fur hag" because he, along with the Kardashian fam, is a consumer of real fur. In retaliation, Cheban started perusing Sidley's page and leaving disrespectful comments on her pictures, which she preserved via screenshots below. His ruthless body-shaming is so gross.
Then, a few days after that, social media caught wind of the garbage comments Cheban was taking the time to leave on the blogger's page. He responded to one such tweet by claiming that Sidley was thrilled to get attention over the insults he virtually spewed at her. (Which, yes please, Cheban. PLEASE mansplain why a woman is UPSET THAT YOU REPEATEDLY MADE FUN OF HER APPEARANCE.)
So, fast-forward to today, February 21 — the blessed day Cheban was born, 43 years ago. He unblocked his Instagram, surely to ensure his fans could wish him a happy birthday.
, because that's just what he does.
@JonathanCheban finally went private. I wonder why? 😂Thanks to everyone who stood up for me! He gets called a #furhag over 100 times a day by other people. He singled me out for some crazy reason and body shamed me. No man should ever make a woman feel like they need plastic surgery to be pretty. We are all beautiful just the way we are! . . . . . . . . #jonathancheban #simonhuck #celebsgodating #vegangirl #kimkardashian #kyliejenner #khloekardashian #krisjenner #kourtneykardashian #kendalljenner #notourstowear #compassion #ethical #furhag #furismurder #veganfortheanimals #theshaderoom @Theshaderoom #stephshep
