Twitter sounds off on Fojol Bros. controversy

It took three years and thousands of meals, but the public started to speak out about the Fojol Bros. shtick in the past week. (Dominic Bracco III/The Washington Post)
Like Sunday morning talk shows, office lunchrooms and sports talk radio, Twitter loves controversy, and the Twitterati sunk their teeth into Saturday’s Style story about the racism charges leveled at the Fojol Bros. food trucks.

The public’s words of wisdom — and otherwise — spanned a broad spectrum of commentary, including folks who wanted to pat themselves on the back for spotting the racism first and those who thought the P.C. police had become Stalinesque in their attacks on unfavorable “speech.”

Then there was the comment of one Andy White, who wrote: “Had to stop reading the anti @fojolbros commentary because stupid makes my brain hurt.”

Perhaps you’ll feel the same way after wading through the Twitter comments after the jump.

Is there more to add to the conversation? Let it rip in the comments below.
