Jerry Seinfeld Supports Bloomberg’s Soda Ban: ‘Fatten them up, kill them off, and move them out’

We love Jerry Seinfeld and his cynicism. We always will, too. So don’t expect Seinfeld references to ever stop here at FishbowlNY. New York’s Grub Street recently caught up with the creator of the best TV show of all time (that’s right!), and he shared his thoughts on Michael Bloomberg’s soda size ban.

Not only does he support it, he supports it in his trademark hilarious way. When Grub Street asked him how he feels about outlawing large sized soft drinks, Seinfeld explained, “I’m in favor of continuing the accelerated Darwinian process of early death and weeding out most of the population through sugary drinks.”

Then, just to make things clear, he added, “I say, ‘Fatten them up, kill them off, and move them out.’”

How can you not love that guy?
