Petition to Rename Columbus, Ohio to 'Flavortown' in Honor of Guy Fieri Gets Thousands of Signatures

George Floyd's Daughter Gianna, 6, Says 'Happy Father's Day in Heaven' Weeks After His Death

Woodbridge wants to take things a step further and completely rename the city. "Columbus is an amazing city, but one whose name is tarnished by the very name itself," he wrote in the petition. "Its namesake, Christopher Columbus, is in The Bad Place because of all his raping, slave trading, and genocide. That's not exactly a proud legacy."

The name change to Flavortown has two reasons, Woodbridge says in the petition. First, "it honors Central Ohio's proud heritage as a culinary crossroads and one of the nation's largest test markets for the food industry." Secondly, Guy Fieri just so happens to be from Columbus. "Naming the city in honor of him (he's such a good dude, really) would be superior to its current nomenclature," Woodbridge explains.

So far, over 28,000 people have signed the petition, and Woodbridge hopes this petition will spark a change that will be brought before the city council. "let's get the ball rolling for a more flavorful tomorrow," he wrote.
