One small word for Barefoot Contessa – KARMA!

After Food Network star Ina Garten realized the PR mistake in turning down a terminally ill child who requested a cooking lesson with her via the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the ‘Barefoot Contessa’ turned around and changed her tune, offering to fulfill the wish. But too little, too late, according to TMZ, which reports that the boy’s family turned down Garten’s offer. Our Facebook fans had a lot to say about the double snub, and we’ve highlighted the best responses for you below.

Faylynn Hall: Good for the KID! he deserved better and doesn’t need to help her guilt or pity need to do it ! She should have said yes in the first place now its out of guilt Screw her . I am not watching her show..

Karissa Joi Singleton: Good, this jerk deserves some embarrassment. If people like Beyonce and Michael Jackson spare time for Make-A-Wish kids, I’m sure she could have too. I’ve never even heard of this lady. Give me a break!
