This blog is dedicated to spreading the truth about Jack Scalfani, a child abuser and racist who has run up modest celebrity on the internet through his “Cooking with Jack” youtube channel. For a long but by no means exhaustive list of what Jack has done, please see this post.

Jack has been doing a lot of these very youtube-esque “food reviews” recently, and I would attribute it to three main factors: One, they’re very easy to do. Two, they’re typically rather current, and Jack is woeful at chasing trends. Three, they’re growing popular in the youtube landscape, a subset of “review-as-entertainment” where a colourful personality and the ability to eat empty calories vicariously count for much. But another major factor is almost certainly his crumbling relationship with his grumpy teenage son. Yes teenagers can be moody and attempt to distance themselves from their parents, but the fact that Jack Junior willingly engages in physical affection with his mother and not his father is very telling in this regard. Given this it’s not surprising Jack uses food as a lure and his “show” as an excuse to hang out with his son, especially after years of not allowing him on the show, using appearances as a carrot with which to encourage good behaviour.
My own intense hatred of Jack doesn’t appear to have a patch on Jack Junior, and I assume it’s because I’m not blood related to him and don’t have to spend any time around him. I can’t say I blame him. He soils the good name of the Beastie Boys, a band I assume he’s never actually listened to given his Milquetoast predilections. Perhaps he heard “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (to Party!)” once and took it at face value? That’s the only explanation I can think of. Much like Deadpool or his Italian heritage he attaches himself to things he thinks other people will find cool.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, rest in peace MCA.
