Bourdain, a CNN host and celebrity chef, came under fire for joking that he would serve hemlock at a hypothetical dinner between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“If Trump and Kim Jong Un were going to have a bit of a summit to try and mend relations and they wanted you to cater, what would you serve?” a TMZ reporter asked Bourdain.

“Hemlock," Bourdain deadpanned.

Conservatives have largely condemned Bourdain for the joke, calling his answer a death threat.

The 61-year-old host of CNN's weekly "Parts Unknown" food and travel series later told Fox News he meant to say "kale" instead of hemlock.
