Michael Buble, the Canadian crooner, has taken to Twitter to defend the way in which he consumes corn.

Buble was photographed last week in the midst of eating an ear of corn while walking around in Disneyland. While most people hold the corn horizontally in front of their months to bite off the corn kernals, Buble put the end of the ear right into his mouth to take a bite – causing Internet hysteria.

Responding to the influx of criticism about his corn-eating habits, Buble captioned the picture in question on Twitter, “This is vegetable harassment !!! What I do with my Cobb is nobody’s business. ‪#‎mesocorny‬ ‪#‎I‬❤paparazzi ‪#‎shuckme.”

Among those who had targeted Buble for his unconventional method of eating corn was comedian Dane Cook, who penned an open letter on Instagram. “Hey, listen my crooner friend I get it. You wanted an entire husk of corn and wtf man who doesn’t right?” Cook wrote. “A full cob just Popsicle style with a wad of paper towels to catch the extra butter dripping away. A torpedo or post kernel magnificence so hearty and yummy that you have to turn your hat backwards like you’re about to carry all 6 bags of groceries from the car to your kitchen counter cuz you don’t wanna make two trips. Yes! We all do son! It’s like a warm hug from someone wearing a very bland thermal long sleeve shirt. Pure love.”

Cook continued, “Let’s maybe lay low for the next few weeks. No Garlic Knot Fairs, Rotwurst In The Park Conventions…. hell I would even steer clear of the biggest cheesy puff in the bowl partner.
Point is this. Big brother is always watching and when you gots a massive phallic food item jammed lovingly in your mouthhole… we all need to know.”
