There is now an online petition calling for the Cleveland City Council to replace a statue of Christopher Columbus with a statue of Chef Boyardee instead!
As of right now, the petition has more than 2,500 signatures! The petition is called "Replace the statue of Christopher Columbus in Little Italy with Chef Boyardee."
It also states the reason why they believe this change is the best choice. The petition states:
"If Italian-Americans in Cleveland want to celebrate one of their own, they need look no further than the iconic Ettore (Hector) Boiardi, AKA Chef Boyardee," the petition reads: "Born in Piacenza, Ettore immigrated to the U.S. at age 16 in 1914. He eventually moved to Cleveland, where he opened a restaurant, Il Giardino d'Italia, that was so popular people asked him to bottle his sauce for them."
Do you think this is a good idea?!
