But it is a hilariously awful way to make fried rice.

Adding some scrambled eggs to the rice, instead of adding eggs to the rice and scrambling them with the rice?

It is outrageous. She's right to get called out for her culinary bs.

Without the so-called cultural appropriation we wouldn't have things like chili and Tex-Mex (actual Mexican is very different from what is normally called Mexican by Americans.)

As a Texan I may LAUGH my ass off at what even people here at Retort consider putting parsley into Pico de Gallo, or putting beans in chili or calling grilling burger a barbeque instead of a cookout...these are barbaric things to do to our Texas authenticity... But I only laugh it.

I don't get angry or offended. I certainly don't expect people to research and honor Texas culture simply because they are serving up terrible versions of our food.

Good gravy. This cultural sensitivity is downright silly. It prevents creativity.
