Campagne already has a Michelin star, but one representative from a “foodie blog” dared to send the restaurant an email that was so outrageous, they didn’t even bother to reply. Instead, they posted the entire thing online for others to be shocked by! Apparently, this sort of thing happens a lot, and people are hoping that sharing the story makes a difference.
The restaurant has been around for nearly 10 years and has been receiving Michelin stars since 2014. Needless to say, Campagne already has a solid foothold in the restaurant scene, and receiving this email was just too insane. Unfortunately, the restaurant isn’t able to pay its bills in “exposure.” The employees have also expressed a desire to be paid in actual money instead of “reviews.”
The viral tweet was shared by people who could relate; artists that are asked for free work in exchange for “telling friends,” or authors who get asked for free books in exchange for “a shout out on Twitter.” People wanted to know which blog was asking them for several free meals…and many actual food bloggers realized that this person hadn’t been in the blog game for very long and probably had a very small audience!
But the restaurant wasn’t going to give out that information. Instead, they just decided to share their experience and hope that other people would take note.
