Giancarlo Stanton Devours a Kit Kat in a Way That Defies All Logic
Giancarlo Stanton is unlike millions of us because he can crush a baseball. He’s also unlike millions of us because he has no idea how to eat a classic American snack.
The Miami Marlins slugger was caught by teammate Dee Gordon mangling a Kit Kat (note the somewhat NSFW language). Gordon showed the world just how Stanton chooses to eat the candy bar:

Gordon was hardly the only one up in arms over Stanton’s unorthodox eating methods. Twitter went wild with people bashing him harder than he bashes baseballs:
@Giancarlo818 just cause u hit baseballs like most hit a 4 iron doesn't mean u can eat candy however u wish. We're living in a society here

You can't eat a Kit Kat like Giancarlo Stanton. That's just savage.

Based on the way Giancarlo Stanton eats a Kit Kat I think it's safe to assume he's a certified psychopath pic.twitter.com/Yf060buN2e

I disagree w/ the way he eats his Kit Kat but Giancarlo Stanton can eat Kit Kats however he wants to because he's Giancarlo Freaking Stanton

Physically hurts to see Stanton eat a Kit Kat like that.

The Marlins never making the playoffs as long as Stanton there just because he ate a kit kat that way

Stanton may soon be treated to a crash course in the Kit Kat consumption etiquette. ESPN’s Darren Rovell reports the company sent him hundreds of bars to scarf down, as well as a guide on the proper way to enjoy them.
Because if there’s anything a baseball star who’s 13-year, $325 million contract that’s the richest in sports history needs, it’s free stuff.
