Korilla BBQ Booted From The Great Food Truck Race for Cheating

kbbqtiger.png
Oh, Korilla, say it ain't so! The Korean BBQ truck, whose chosun bowls we are so very fond of, has been kicked off of The Great Food Truck Race for cheating.

Midtown Lunch viewed last night's episode of the reality show, which is basically like every other televised culinary competition, only with exhaust fumes. Host Tyler Florence announced that the truck, which had placed in the top four, would no longer participate in the competition because its owners had added $2,000 of their own money to their cash drawer in order to compensate for a lack of sales during the episode's challenge.

Korilla's owners have denied any wrongdoing with the emphatic tweet "WE WOULD NEVER CHEAT ON YOU NEW YORK." Contractually, of course, they're forbidden to discuss any details of the show until a much later date. Or, as they put it over Twitter, "1st Amendment rights went on a haitus and won't be back till Spring." (Well, that's what happens when you sign your life away to a TV production company.) In the meantime, they're scheduled to be open at Broadway and 116th at 12:30, serving lunch like they always do.

Well this is typical Koreans, they"ll do anything to get what they wanted. IRS should pay them a visit

They cheated and now they're lying. I have no doubt that they treat their customers with the same lack of honor and honesty.

They said the host "made them look bad"!!!!!!!!!!   "They" made themselves look bad.  Unbeleivable.  Im glad they got kicked off. Everyone needs to be on the same page and honest too.

If we all want to be treated as equals how come we all insist on put labels on ourselves?

The point here is that a group's ethnic background is not relevant to pointing out cheating. Irish, Korean, Jew, 2 Africans and 1 German - none of those distinctions matter here. The point is to simply say, "man, why did that group cheat. Stupid move!"

Pointing out race (or gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc) when it's not central to the issue being discussed is discriminatory.

Cheating to win is as American as Apple Pie. The Pilgrams did it to the Native Americans. G.W. Bush also did it to win the 2000 election. We also have Congressmen and Senators that cheat on their spouses but protect the Sanctity of Marriage. Ameician as Apple Pie!!!

You forgot to mention how those sneaky cheating Koreans showed no signs of remorse for there misdeeds. In fact they seemed more concerned about being made to look bad for only cheating ... it was hard to tell the exact quote from them because they would only speak in Korean from that point on ... huh

"Haitus," not hiatus? They are at the very least guilty of spelling crimes....

Dude....in truth, Bush actually stopped GORE from cheating by cherry picking only certain heavily Democrat counties in FL for recount and disenfranchising all others. All Gore had to do was to ask for a recount of the entire state but he knew what the NY Times, Orlando Sentinel and other media outlets learned after they scoured every single ballot in the state....Bush won and Gore lost, fair and square.

why is it sneaky cheating "koreans"?  would you have said "sneaky cheating irish" or "sneaky cheating jews" if one of the other groups went down like that?  not cool, moo.  we're past that.  let's hear what they have to say when the gag order is over.
