‘They feeding y’all like it’s Fyre Festival’: Internet reacts to food at the Met Gala
‘This is why they don’t show y’all the food,’ the actor joked

Actor and TV personality Keke Palmer has shared a photograph of her meal at fashion’s most lavish night of the year, where the food was less than glam.

帕默 posted a photograph of her dinner plate on 社交媒体 星期二 14 September after a Twitter user asked her what was on the menu at Monday’s Met Gala.

“The menu chile”, Palmer replied, alongside a sad-looking plate of 食物.

Although it did look like Palmer had already made a start on her food before taking the picture, the portion was small.

The plate featured a sweetcorn and tomato salad, some barley, three slices of courgette and a fourth indistinguishable vegetable, which looked like it could either be a piece of browned broccoli or a type of mushroom.

One person posted a close-up of the vegetable, 写作: “I’m trying to figure out what this is.” One user joked in response: “That’s um bronchitis”.

Marcus Samuelsson, a chef who helped create the menu for the evening, 告诉 TMZ on Wednesday that the vegetable was in fact a mushroom.

Some compared the plate to the food at the notorious failed Fyre Festival, which served guests cheese sandwiches after they paid upwards of $1000 (£722) for tickets.

“They feeding y’all like it’s Fyre Festival,” one person said. Another replied: “Didn’t the Fyre Festival at least have a cheese sandwich.”

Palmer also shared the photograph to her Instagram stories. “This is why they don’t show y’all the food. I’m just playin’,“ 她写了, adding a side-eye emoji.

A ticket to the Met Gala reportedly costs $30,000 apiece (£24,000), and tables cost $275,000 (£215,000), 根据 时尚.

This year’s Met Gala guests sat down to a three-course meal that was entirely plant-based.

In August, Samuelsson told Bon Appetit the organisers had opted for a meat-free menu because it represents how “food is changing in America”.

“We thought it was important to really talk about what’s present, what’s happening — how food is changing in America.

“We want to be the future of American food, of plant-based food. That conversation is happening now,“ 他说.

The full menu included a salad starter, made using “farm-to-table” ingredients, followed by a creamy barley and corn dish for mains. For dessert, guests enjoyed an apple mousse with apple confit.
