NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio eats pizza with a fork

Complex.com called the mayor's act as "his first mistake as mayor of NYC."

When asked why he used fork on his pizza, Mayor Bill de Blasio had this to say:
In my ancestral homeland, it’s more typical to eat with a fork and knife
De Blasio kind of referred to his Italian roots.
Since the photo of NYC Mayor spread online, it even earned its own hashtag: #forkgate - which, in turn created further media buzz and produced humorous headlines from media outlets. Here are some of them:
"Some New Yorker!" from New York Post
"The Mayor of New York eats his pizza like a tourist" from New York Daily News
"The honeymoon is over" from New York Magazine
There are questions though, if the NYC Mayor's eating pizza with a fork is such a big deal or not. (Source)
