[Ed. – It’s what the market will bear, chum.]
Mayor Bill de Blasio got hot and crusty Wednesday over a Post report about a Domino’s pizzeria in Midtown that sold pies for $30 apiece to penned-in New Year’s Eve revelers in Times Square.
“Jacking up your prices on people trying to celebrate the holidays? Classy, @dominos,” de Blasio tweeted from his official city account.
“To the thousands who came to Times Square last night to ring in 2020, I’m sorry this corporate chain exploited you — stick it to them by patronizing one of our fantastic LOCAL pizzerias.”
But Hizzoner’s furious accusations of profiteering drew heaps of scorn from Twitter users who promptly delivered a menu of insults that included reminders of his infamous 2014 pizza peccadillo on Staten Island.
