a Velveeta shortage on the East Coast. Many worried that the shortage would negatively impact tailgating and football parties. Many worried that the supposed shortage was a ploy to drive up demand right before the NFL playoffs and Super Bowl. Well this weekend all of those fears came to a head.
|Police and B.F. D. were called to this Boston Area Shaw’s for a Velveeta Riot.|
It is at this point that details get fuzzy. But Police spokesman, Tim Flock says that angry customers began throwing the contents of their carts and baskets at the manager, a few glass bottles of salsa thrown form the back of the crowd hit some of the people in the front. Eventually punches were thrown and a full riot was in gear.
By the end of the melee the store’s electric doors were ruined, the manager was in critical condition, 47 people were injured, 23 of which were sent to the local hospital including the store manager, and almost 60 were arrested or being held for questioning by Police.
As many users on Twitter call this #Cheesepocalypse, this crime escapade is the sum of all our fears. As the NFL playoffs near, and lest we forget the Super Bowl, what further incidences of Velveeta Riot can we expect? How bad will this get? Most importantly, is it worth it for processed cheese product?
