'Emily in Paris' Dissed a Chicago Pizza Restaurant & They Just Responded

One of the most famous pizza restaurants in Chicago was dissed in the new Netflix series Emily in Paris and they aren’t happy about it.

In the new series, which has reached number one on the Netflix charts in the U.S., a character referred to deep-dish pizza as a “quiche made of cement.”

Lily Collins‘ character Emily responded, “Oh no, you must have gone to Lou Malnati’s.”

The chain’s owner Marc Malnati released a statement in response to the dig. He said, “We’ve been serving Chicago’s favorite Deep Dish since 1971. When Netflix’ Emily in Paris writers chose to take a shot at Chicagoans and our pizza to try to get a laugh, it felt heartless and not humorous in the midst of Covid-19.”

The restaurant is also offering a discount in honor of the support they’ve received.

“Thank you to all our fans who have shown so much love and support! To say ‘merci’ for keeping us #ChicagoStrong we’re giving you $5 off a Tastes of Chicago shipped 4 or 6 pizza pack! Place your order by Wednesday, October 14th and use code TCXCHISTRONG at checkout,” the statement added.

Read about the one moment on the show that all of the fans were waiting for, but didn’t get.
