Dumb Starbucks Founder Nathan Fielder Fires Back at Health Department on Kimmel (Video)

Comedy Central star Nathan Fielder’s Dumb Starbucks was shut down by the Los Angeles County Health Department on Monday for operating without a health permit, so the businessman fired back at the department while appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” later in the evening.

“What they don’t understand is that, technically, legally speaking, we’re an art gallery and the coffee we’re selling is considered the ‘art,’ so art galleries don’t need health permits,” Fielder, star of comedy docu-series “Nathan for You,” said in an interview with Kimmel (above). “But also, by not having the proper health permits and paying those fees, we’re able to pass on those savings to the customers.”
