Chef Vikas Khanna is in the news again. Though, this time, it's not for his culinary skills or for his humanitarian work.
This time, he won the internet's heart, yet again, after giving a befitting reply to an anti-immigrant remark made by a US Senate candidate, Lauren Witzke.
This is what Lauren Witzke tweeted about. She said:

You want to send the Mexicans and Guatemalans and West Africans home? Who would do their work? Delaware would collapse. You don’t get out much, do you?— Joseph N. DiStefano (@PhillyJoeD) October 10, 2020
You are tweeting your anti-immigrant bigotry on a phone created by the son Syrian immigrant. Will that do? pic.twitter.com/DGkWTOm8K2— Don Moynihan (@donmoyn) October 10, 2020
It is absolutely abhorrent to be this racist without being smart enough to know it.— Andrew Goss 👊USAF👊 (@Goss30Goss) October 10, 2020
