    Portland pop-up burrito shop forced to close after being bombarded with accusations it was 'stealing Mexican culture"

    "Two white women have been forced to close their pop-up burrito shop after they were accused of cultural appropriation.

    Kali Wilgus and Liz 'LC' Connelly opened Kooks Burritos in Portland, Oregon, after taking a trip to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, last December.

    For the first few months, the weekend pop-up shop housed in an taco truck was a smash hit. It gained so much popularity, a local weekly newspaper decided to profile the entrepreneurial duo.

    But that's when the trouble started for Wilgus and Connelly, after quotes they gave to the Williamette Week led to them being accused of stealing their success."

    Looks like we should all stop making ethnic food then. I love to cook and I make it as authentic as possible. But by this insane train of thought we are all stealing now.

    They didn't use enough rat and dog meat, not authentic.
