Early Monday morning, Palmer decided now was the time to seemingly ignore the existence of food deserts.

“Imagine if your EBT card could only work on healthy items,” Palmer said in the tweet receiving the most attention.

Prior to sharing this take, Palmer had been replying to fans amid a discussion on the pumped-up cost of healthier foods. The eventual “imagine if” tweet, however, has been panned for appearing to miss multiple points including the difficulty of eating healthy in food-sparse regions, the unavailability of healthier alternatives in many of those same regions, and the aforementioned (and often massive) cost difference.
