Alton Brown has revealed in a tweet that has provoked a lot of backlash from his fans online that he is a long-time Republican.

The celebrity chef and television personality from Food Network managed to upset legions of democratically-minded fans on Monday night with his confession, which comes just days after the 2020 US presidential election.

“I voted Republican for most of my life,” Brown twittered. “I consider myself a conservative. I want to believe that there are still ‘very good’ people on both sides of the aisle, but … if the #GOP leaders can’t get their collective noses out of this man’s A**, we’ll talk.”

I voted Republican most of my life. I consider myself a conservative. I want to believe that there are still very good people on both sides of the aisle, but … if the GOP leaders don’t get their collective noses out of this man’s ass, we’re going to fight.

The 58-year-old refers to Donald Trump and his allies, who did not admit defeat after the victory of Joe Biden.

A number of senior GOP figures – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Lindsey Graham – stand by Trump’s refusal to give up defeat as the White House continues to advance unfounded accusations of election fraud and a flood of lawsuits sparked by the Trump campaign.

In Brown’s home country of Georgia, the Republican US Sen. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue have called for the resignation of Georgian Foreign Minister Brad Raffensperger and at the same time criticized the state’s election process.

Brown checked the name of both Loeffler and Perdue in another tweet: “My family has lived in Georgia for at least 5 generations. I own several companies in Ga. I employ Georgians. My home country is Georgia. And my senators embarrass me and the state they are supposed to represent. @sendavidperdue and @SenatorLoeffler. I speak g to you.”

Brown has not indicated whether he voted for Trump in this election, but seemed as stressed as other Americans on election day when he posted numerous disturbing tweets about stress-eating and other bizarre musings in anticipation of the outcome.

One angry response to Brown’s political revelation is: “Alton Brown said that homosexuals have the right to brine, but not the right to marry.

Another person replied, “As someone who woke up early on Saturday morning to see good food, as someone whose life was immeasurably influenced by your mission and the way you handled food, as someone who looked up to you since childhood, and as a gay woman, I cannot express how disappointing this is.

Another fan said: “…and I liked and like your shows very much. They have made me a better and more adventurous cook. I am not angry…. just incredibly disappointed.” Brown answered them by saying, “Frankly, you have no right to be disappointed in me. Not at all. I used my own platform to express my opinion. You may not like me, sure, but disappointment in me should be withheld when you say… bad recipes.

Brown has spoken in the past about not wanting to become a politically sung celebrity.

In 2012 Alton simply tweeted: “Vote.”
