Douchieness level: Owning a fedora

Mario Batali has a well-documented (word to Twitter) history of saying really regrettable things, i.e. comparing Wall Street bankers to Nazis. Apparently, Batali's track record extends past reckless tweeting. Batali apparently stole from his employees. While the full story remains under wraps cause the chef settled the lawsuit, he gist is that employees across his restaurants accused him of pocketing their tips, which is clearly very illegal. It's one thing to whip out disrespectful metaphors, it's another to allegedly take money from people making two bucks an hour waiting tables. Shame on you, Batali.
