Jason Segel quit Twitter over burrito debate
By Tribute News on July 18, 2014 | 4 Comments
Jason Segel, 34, hasn't used his Twitter account for over two years after he upset some Mexican food fans. Speaking on The David Letterman Show this week, the Sex Tape star said: ''It was 2 a.m. and I was hungry so I went to my kitchen and I had a choice between a burrito and a sandwich. I chose to make a sandwich; it was delightful. So I innocently tweeted, 'Sandwiches are more diverse than burritos.' For the next day and a half, there was a firestorm of debate. 'You're an idiot, you don't know about burritos.' And I said 'I do know about burritos and if they get too diverse, they're a wrap.'' When the things had cooled down, the actor posted a picture of himself with a burrito and wrote: ''Ok. Burrito lovers. I made a giant delicious burrito. Get off my back. It's still not as good as a sandwich. Sorry.'' Jason - who still has an impressive 2.53 million followers despite sending his last tweet in April 2012 - also revealed some of his favorite types of sandwiches. He said: ''A BLT. BLT's the best sandwich because it can be eaten any time of the day ... Tuna melt, delicious. Plain old grilled cheese - fantastic.''
