Fake grocery store Twitter trolls Mehmet Oz over crudité shopping video


Last April, the Republican Senate nominee for Pennsylvania (and.) long time New Jersey resident) released a video walking through a Pennsylvania grocery store looking for vegetables for what is believed to be a crudité platter. He uses this opportunity to complain about the prices and, by extension, President Joe Biden,

In the video, Oz apparently scrambles the names of two chains in Pennsylvania, Radner’s and Wegman’s, and says he was shopping for a Wegner’s—a grocery chain that doesn’t actually exist.

“In PA we call this a…veggie tray,” Fetterman wrote on Twitter, reposting Oz’s video. Fetterman later doubled and Launched a new campaign sticker Featuring a Wegner logo that reads “Let them eat crudité.”

The ribbing continued Tuesday, this time checked out by Oz in his video for the fictional Wegner’s grocery store, a parody Twitter account.

The Twitter bio for the account reads “Crudit Capital of Central PA.” The account has been contacted by HuffPost to learn more about its creation.

And, yes, Twitter users were delighted.

Some had to go back to 1988 to remember themselves as bad as Oz.

One Twitter user, political strategist Atima Omara, wanted to turn the whole thing into a learning moment for future political candidates.
