Peloton celebrity Cody Rigsby apologizes for Amy Klobuchar 'casserole' faux pas

It comes after he heard from a number of Minnesotans.
Klobuchar

Cody Rigsby, a celebrity instructor for exercise bike phenomenon Peloton, found himself in hot water with Minnesotans during Joe Biden's inauguration.

The reason? Because he described the coat worn by Sen. Amy Klobuchar as she spoke and compered at President Joe Biden's inauguration as "corn casserole yellow." 

He made the comment on Instagram Stories, but had to post a clarification a short time later in which he apologize to "all the midwesterners."

"Apparently it's called a hot dish not caserole [sic]," he posted. "Either way sign me up. I do know Amy K just sent one to the White House."

Rigsby has become known as the "King of Quarantine" for his high-energy, optimistic fitness classes for Peloton, the fitness bike phenomenon that has boomed during COVID-19 shutdowns.

His bio for Peloton notes he was "born in the West but raised in the South," so it's not surprising he's not familiar with "hot dish," a term very much rooted in the North.
