How Sean Hannity Lost His Olive Garden Lifetime Pasta Pass After The Capitol Riot

A Twitter joke spiraled out of control and the internet lost its mind, so Hannity covered it on his show.  

Here’s what happened:

Olive Garden

The Italian chain restaurant released a statement alleging that guests at their restaurant had participated in the Capitol Riot, and in response they were invalidating their “Never Ending Pasta” passes as well as revoking Sean Hannity’s Lifetime Pasta Pass. 

Or Did They?

A designer named Louie Mantia Jr., who is verified on Twitter, actually made the post.   

Mantia Explains

The Portland designer wrote that “Anderson Cooper said those who attacked the Capitol would be returning to Olive Garden and Holiday Inn,” then Hannity took the time on his show to lament about his love for Olive Garden. 

Axe Body Spray

He went on to explain that he thought it was ridiculous that AXE made a public statement about a can of their body spray being left in the Capitol Building.   

Making A Joke

Because it was absurd that Olive Garden was dragged into the incident, and he was essentially bored, he crafted a fictional statement. 

Jabbing at Cooper

He thought that since the Pasta Pass hasn’t been sold since 2019, and his intentional jab at Anderson Cooper would make the joke obvious.  

Too Big, Too Fast

But when the joke was tweeted and re-tweeted, and people started to believe his joke was real… 

Hannity Responded

Even Hannity covered the tweet.  

Not Just A Joke

Since actual journalists believed in the jokes legitimacy, he deleted the original tweet. 

Taking It Back

It was fun while it lasted…

Time to step UP
The leftists are using Twitter and FB to organize themselves they will never get banned because FB and Twitter are Antifa and BLM members.
Twitter and Facebook ARE NOT Private companies they have gone PUBLIC as they are publicly traded.
Mexican President Manuel Lopez Obrador, is also mounting an International Campaign Taking On Tech Companies After Trump Bans.
All this “Conservative” sites should disconnect from Twitter and facebook use something else why anyone is sharing to FB or Twitter they are banning every conservative.
Twitter down 15% from $52 to $45, from last week to today, make sure everyone keeps telling everyone else to help this is the war we are fighting..
This is the next path forward, first Blocksite twitter and facebook from your internet provider, the state of Idaho internet provider blocked them both, in North Dakota banned users can sue Twitter and Facebook.
Use Ramble, GaB instead.
Tech bubble is imminent, close twitter, FB, Instagram accounts, dump their stock if own any from your IRA, 401K check your mutual funds that have Twitter or FB included, Twitter down again, dump before they go to zero, stop buying from Amazon, NO more made in the CCP purchases, buy direct from the mom’s and pop’s stores near you, made in America only, don’t wait DO IT TODAY.

Actually, the food has really suffered the past two years. It is not what it use to be.
So avoid Olive Garden.

Olive Garden just lost a family group of 9. Shame that these companies seem to choose the wrong side of these issues.

It was a joke (satire) that everyone spread as if it is real. Sean Hannity explained it on his show. And he’s still eating at Olive Garden.

I used to eat at Olive Garden in the Eighties, I loved their food, the spaghetti and meat sauce. I used to go through so many of those bread sticks, when the meal came, I could barely eat that. After staying away from spaghetti for awhile, I finally returned to them about ten years later and nothing tasted the same at all!!

I do think this is a joke, based on the fact that there’s probably more pasta available than we’ll ever be able to eat (sort of like potatoes). As a footnote, please don’t confuse “vicious” with “viscous” — which is an aerodynamics term that means “sticky” or drag-causing.

I guess I am out of date on this Internet stuff. I had always thought the Internet was created by the government (not the idiot politician) and its use was supplemented by satellites. Now is a license required to connect to the backbone of the net? How about demanding the FCC to revoke any license if they cannot control their biases.

And I though it was the leftist elites that thought Olive Garden was for the masses and not good enough for their refined tastes. Now nobody will be eating there.
