I don’t agree with this.
The following are often mispronounced:
asparagus
quinoa
acai
tempeh
seitan 
various other fruits and veggies (that might be new to a person’s life).

i’m having couch for dinner! 

this Thai place in the city serves this dish called Khao Kra Paow Kai Dow and it’s goddamn amazing and if you follow the above mentality then honestly you deserve to miss out on the vast majority of good food
so angry at this ridiculous statement

-i think it’s meant to be for preservatives and weird chemicals-

me too! I was just pointing out how prima facie absurd it is
but yeah even though it incidentally advocates racism (or at least xenophobia), that shouldn’t distract us from the fact that it intentionally advocates the naturalistic fallacy
and even then it does it in a completely backwards way with this assumption that these undesirable chemicals are even necessarily lab-produced
like google fructooligosaccarhides
everything we eat is made of chemicals and some of those chemicals are grown on a plant or made in an animal and some of those chemicals are synthesised in a lab and some are good for you and some are bad for you
like if your rule of thumb is “the red flags are pronounceability and laboratory origin” then mushroom, berry, go have a forest picnic mate
(the above is not directed at you, there, justforyoumiranda, but at the mentality at large)
