Jennifer Esposito Jabs Rachael Ray in Gluten-Free Cooking Dustup

Celiac.com 03/07/2014 - Our latest gluten-free celebrity news comes with word from eon line.com that actress Jennifer Esposito has sparked a bit of a dustup with Rachael Ray over an episode of Ray's 3 in the Bag that aired earlier this month on Food Network, in which Ray shared some favorite gluten-free recipes.

Photo: Wikimedia Commons--David of EarthActress-turned-activist Jennifer Esposito called Ray out for failing to make any mention of celiac disease, and dubbed Ray's efforts a "wasted opportunity," for failing to mention celiac disease, gluten sensitivity or cross-contamination, adding: "Why be responsible?"

Esposito also tweeted, "That would mean @rachaelray would have to understand what she is actually speaking about."

Esposito also tweeted a link to a post in Gluten Dude's blog which slammed Ray.

The former Blue Bloods star ended by tweeting: It's a shame that their r so many suffering at the hands of ignorance such as this."

Esposito claims her doctor-advised 2012 medical leave from the show for celiac disease led to her suspension from the CBS series.

My guess is that Rachael Ray is not aware of the far reaching effects of gluten sensitivity and celiac disease. Insults were unnecessary and don't help our cause.

Celebrity should not be used as a blunt object in the name of activism. Shaming does not advance awareness, but initiates disdain.

I so agree with Arg - your attack on Rachel Ray looks shortsighted and self centered - do you have any idea how many problems, illnesses and issues there are in the world today? It would be impossible for anyone to stay on top of it all ... you should pick on people who are truly doing harm in the world ... Like persons who publicly attack innocent people for starters ...Newsflash ... The show wasn't ABOUT you ...
