People on Twitter are freaking out over a restaurant that was trying to inject celebrity DNA into their meats back in 2014.
A recent Tweet from @BaltimoorBambi has revitalized the conversation on meat infused with celebrity DNA. Despite the Tweet’s claims, there is only record of one company even attempting to try this— BiteLabs. This company made a very weird campaign back in 2014 to try and get people to Tweet at popular celebrities. This was part of a plan to pressure the celebs to allow BiteLabs to use their DNA in their meat.
On BiteLabs‘ website, you can see them suggesting different flavour compositions for celebs such as Ellen DeGeneres, James Franco, Kanye West, and Jennifer Lawrence. Ellen, James, and Kanye have since fallen from grace since this 2014 campaign so maybe they should look for fresh meat to fetishize?
“They got whole restaurants where they inject meat with your favorite celebrities dna and they promote cannibalism lol and y’all still think the industry is normal ok”

There are better ways to do this than growing celebrity tissue samples in a test tube @ BiteLabs.
