The never ending search for something to be offended by:

  • Guardian writer Raj Patel said the classic American dessert was born of slavery and colonialism
  • His article highlighted how apple trees had been brought to the west from Asia
  • He claims they were used as symbols of property by settlers who arrived in America, and forced indigenous people off their lands
  • Patel also took aim at the sugar crust, and even the gingham cloth an apple pie is traditionally cooled on   
  • But his opinion piece, first published last month, was widely mocked online  
  • One sarcastic tweeter claimed the piece was ‘going for gold in the oppression olympics’
  • Another joked that apple pie was also ‘glutenist’ and discriminated against people with wheat intolerances

Food writer Raj Patel (pictured) claimed the all-American dessert was born of colonialism and slavery, after highlighting how apples had first arrived in the west from central Asia 4,000 years ago
