Legendary Village Voice Critic Robert Sietsema Fired After 20 Years

A shocking piece of news has just come down the wire - legendary Village Voice food critic Robert Sietsema has been let go after 20 years. Part of an appalling mass layoff including NY icon Michael Musto and Michael Feingold, this latest news comes on the heels of a staff resignation last week after some caught wind of the impending layoffs. The Village Voice has long been going through financial woes which are obviously coming to a head in the last several weeks. Sietsema is a true legend in the world of NY food criticism and an inspiration to many with his fearless palate and distinctive writing style. The remaining staff is apparently in an uproar over the news, stay tuned for more updates as they come. [Gawker]
