Recent chatter among Las Vegas influencers has unearthed a new Vegas scandal, and no, it’s not about shady casino dealers or bribed politicians. This time, it’s all about the inflated price of a humble plate of nachos at the sportsbook venue in the Fontainebleau Las Vegas.
A rather disgruntled Twitter user, @MuTigerMike, took to the popular social media site on Jan. 22 to express his dismay after waiting an hour for his order only to be served a meager plate of nachos. The post, which included a photo of the underwhelming dish, has since garnered 1.2M views, igniting a flurry of reactions from other social media users.
The swift and witty discussions reached a climax when Twitter/X user @ThatCasinoLife coined the scandal “Nachogate,” effectively solidifying its viral status. Additionally, the resort’s handling of the incident was further scrutinized by social media aficionados, with @WesMcQ delivering a rather blunt verdict on the situation.
In a bid to manage the debacle, Fontainebleau Las Vegas’ social media manager attempted to pacify the situation by reaching out to @MuTigerMike with an offer to discuss the incident, only to be met with skepticism from social media observers who criticized the resort’s response as inadequate.
It seems Nachogate has truly made and continues to make quite an impression across various social media platforms, sparking a wave of attention with mixed backlash for Fontainebleau’s sportsbook and customer service management.
