A woman on TikTok is under fire after criticizing critics of her most recent food video.
Zoe Barrie (@zoebarrie) is a food creator who posted a video of herself preparing dinner for her family, which included chicken, beer bread, and a veggie-packed marinara sauce. She showed the process step by step, but some people were not happy with some of her choices.
She showed herself putting chicken in the pan, which some people made some comments about.
“Not a pinch of salt or pepper?” asked @chantelly.
“A little salt and pepper on the chicken to take away the bland flavor of the meat, but otherwise good,” said @that_girlnene.
Barrie responded to several of those comments by saying that she used a large amount of salt on the chicken. However, he then proceeded to make a follow-up video addressing his detractors.
“This is a public service announcement for the police experience in this app,” he began. “If, in your brain, you only use seasoning like garlic powder, onion powder, or something like rosemary… If this is what you see as seasoning and just seasoning, let me ask you a question: Where does this come from?”
Barrie continued to defend her tactics in the kitchen.
“What’s so funny to me is that if I had basted my chicken with this marinade and only this marinade, the seasoning police wouldn’t be around for my comments.”
TikTok jokes about creators not seasoning their food are common, and #seasoning garnered more than 687 million views.
Barrie is now facing criticism, as some users believe that the term “condiment police” was a euphemism for black people.
“I just don’t know who the condiment cops are,” @loammiririchardson said. “I’m curious who she is because the only people I know who season her food don’t look like her. …I don’t know. Spicing up the police sounds a bit racist.”
Richardson isn’t the only person who feels this way.
“Who’s the condiment cop honey?” @theshelahmarie said. “Say the quiet part out loud.”
People in the comments on her video felt the same way.
“It’s the same energy when they say the ‘kinky police’ or whatever, we all know who you’re talking about. Just say it,” @terrordomes replied.
Barrie has yet to respond to the criticism, but the conversation about seasoning food is in full swing.
