In a recent episode of his podcast "Two Bears One Cave," comedian Tom Segura shared some harsh opinions about the city of Erie, Pennsylvania. He called it a "depressed town with a depressed economy" and encouraged residents to leave. This caused a stir in the local community, with the segment being played on the local news and even the Mayor being interviewed about Segura's comments.
However, the story didn't end there. A local weatherman, David Walter, decided to clap back at Segura's insults with a clever retort of his own. On his social media account, he joked that Segura's disdain for Erie was actually because he wasn't voted in the top 10 of the "sexiest bald men alive." This sparked a bit of a back-and-forth between Segura and his fans, and a small group of Erie residents who decided to "pester" Segura on social media.
It's not uncommon for comedians to have ongoing beefs with specific cities or towns, but it's clear that the citizens of Erie are not taking Segura's insults lying down. Despite his negative comments, they are using their wit and sense of humor to fight back and defend their city.
