‘I will not be apologizing’: Podcaster won’t take back ‘White Lizzo’ Christie smear

Podcaster Joey Mannarino caught some heat on social media for a hilarious dig, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to apologize.

It started as a message directed at former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who recently took a trip to Ukraine and delivered flowers to the country’s president.

“White Lizzo, also known as Chris Christie, took a trip to Ukraine and presented Zelenskyy with blue and yellow flowers. In case you were wondering what kind of a Republican Chris is, it’s the type that would continue the national sucking-off of Zelenskyy,” Mannarino wrote. “Why is it that Chris wants to continue to take American tax dollars and send them to Ukraine? Let’s be real. He doesn’t care about that part.”

Chris is there for the borshch, varenyky, holubtsi, Chicken Kyiv, banosh, and syrnyky. Chris is there for the crazy lunch festival that I’m sure Zelenskyy is going to provide,” he continued. “If Chris was serious about winning the GOP primary, rather than eating his heart out with Zelenskyy he’d be denouncing every dollar that we’ve sent to this war of NATO aggression. Chris Christie is not the guy we need right now… and with those flowers in hand, we don’t EVER need him.”

Critics quickly jumped on the message, but not in defense of Christie, Zelenskyy, or even war-torn Ukraine.

No, apparently people are upset about his use of recently-embattled musician Lizzo’s name to smear Christie.

The podcaster addressed the backlash by refusing to apologize:

Something tells me Lizzo has more pressing concerns than being compared to Christie…
