With statues of Christopher Columbus being taken down across the country, a Change.org petition argues that Columbus, Ohio change the name of the town to “Flavortown,” the catch phrase of Food Network TV host, Guy Fieri.
The name change would honor Fieri, who was born in Columbus in 1968.
The petition’s creator says the name change would also honor the city’s “proud heritage as a culinary crossroads”, adding “let’s get the ball rolling for a more flavorful tomorrow”.
As of this morning, the petition has close to 30,000 signatures. The goal is set for 35,000.
