Andrew Yang has taken to the streets of NYC since the announcement of his 2021 mayoral campaign. His first stop was a spacious, pristine, well-lit convenience store that he featured in a video about supporting local bodegas. Anyone who lives in NYC knows that bodega discourse is a contentious subject for New Yorkers, and so it is unsurprising that Yang’s message was completely eclipsed by the fact that he was not, in fact, in a bodega.
The bodega warriors of Twitter wasted no time roasting Yang for the faux pas. Many tweeted photos of Whole Foods and CVS with the caption, ‘on my way to my local bodega!’ Sorry Yang, but no one wins in the bodega wars. We’ve collected some of the funniest reactions to Yang’s viral Twitter video.
