Keith Lee Says His Family Faced Threats After Critical Reviews Of Atlanta Restaurants

Keith Lee, a popular food critic on TikTok with over 14 million followers, has faced threats after being critical of several restaurants in Atlanta.

In a recent social media post, Lee expressed concern for his and his family’s safety, stating, “Nobody’s safety should be on the line. Not mine, not my family, not the restaurants that we go to relax. Like relax, bro. Like I understand, I get it. I get it. But at the end of the day, what you want me to do, you want me to lie? I can’t do that. I’ll walk away from everything before I lie. I’m telling you that right now. On 10 toes, everything. God bless me.”

The controversy began when Lee posted videos about his dining experiences in Atlanta, including encounters with restaurants such as Atlanta Breakfast Club, The Real Milk & Honey, and Old Lady Gang.

Some restaurant owners faced backlash for their responses to Lee’s reviews. The owner of The Real Milk & Honey claimed to state they didn’t know who Keith Lee was after his review expressed a problematic experience.

The owner of Old Lady Gang, Kandi Burruss, addressed the reasons for not creating carry-out orders on the weekend but did not address the reason for Keith Lee’s family being told it would be an hour to an hour and a half to be seated, but when he walked in the time changed to a five-minute wait.
