Victory! Jessica Simpson Is Finally Vindicated for ‘Newlyweds’ Chicken of the Sea Snafu
It's been 14 years since Jessica Simpson's famed Chicken of the Sea snafu. You know, when she asked her then-husband, Nick Lachey, “Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish?” on their hit MTV reality show, Newlyweds. Now, Simpson is finally getting the vindication she deserves—all thanks to a mix-up where we spend 80 percent of our paycheck at Whole Foods.
According to reports, the food retailer was forced to recall about 440 pounds of tuna masquerading as buffalo chicken salad earlier this month. Simpson saw this as an opportunity for simultaneous self-deprecation and support.
The singer-cum-fashion designer rehashed her iconic reality-TV moment by tweeting a screenshot of a news report with the headline: “Whole Foods Discovered Its Chicken Salad Actually Had Tuna,” along with the caption, “It happens to the best of us @WholeFoods.”
Well played, Jess. Well played.
Simpson: One, Whole Foods: Zero.
