Canadian Man Starts A Dinner Brawl Over Hot Sauce
All because someone wanted to use his Franks Red Hot? I don’t know about that one, chief.

If you are hosting a dinner party, then it should be your job to accommodate your guests, right? For example, if you and your friend are eating dinner at your house and they ask for salt, and you know you have salt….shouldn’t you let them use some of that salt?
If it’s readily available in your home, there’s no reason to tell someone that they can’t have it…especially if you’re trying to be a good host.
One Canadian man, who was hosting the dinner party, accidentally started a dinner fight after his sister’s boyfriend said he “needs hot sauce” and started walking towards the fridge. The host stopped the boyfriend and said, “I’d appreciate it if you enjoyed my meal as it is.”
And there’s a reason why.
The dinner host shared his encounter on the Buffalo subReddit:
“We come from an Italian family but are in Canada (my mom was born there, I was here). I take my food very seriously, especially Italian food, and double especially because my nonna is eating with us.
I spent all day preparing dinner and when we sat down to eat, my sister's boyfriend is humming and hawing saying my meal is missing something. He said he needs hot sauce and starts walking to my fridge. All I have is Franks and Sriracha. I like hot sauce, too, but I don't dare mix cuisines like that.
So I stopped him saying I'd appreciate if he enjoyed my meal as it is. He said it's no big deal, and in a way it isn't, but also in many ways it is. I told him at the very least, I have some Calabrian chili oil he can use, or dried chili flakes. Then it would at least still be Italian. He insists on Sriracha, and I declined him.
He escalated it and said he was going to go to the store and buy his own bottle and return if that's the case, and I said by all means. He left, we finished up dinner, and we called it an early night. Everyone is putting their coat and shoes on as he returns, and he's pissed.
This has been a fight all day yesterday between them because he wants my sister on his side, not mine. They've been dating only 3 months.”
If the boyfriend said “something is missing” and it was his first time over at the house, that’s rude. And definitely crossing the line as a guest.
But to police someone’s food and condiment of choice, even though the Frank’s Red Hot and the Sriracha were readily available, that’s just kind of … a jerk move.
