"There’s been a change of plans. Let’s talk about it. The next half of the food tour is not Atlanta," he said.

However, Lee said that since he was already in Atlanta, he would rent a local food truck on Wednesday and give it away to anyone who showed up as a way to give back to the community.  

He then posted details about where the food truck could be found to his Instagram story

Lee was not happy after his first visit to Atlanta in October 2023. His comments about the service he received in Atlanta didn't go over well with most people in the community. While some people were offended by his take on Atlanta, others attacked the restaurants that Lee criticized. 


The former professional MMA fighter, who thanked the community for welcoming him back with open arms, says he will be back in Atlanta soon. He also explained that he didn't feel it was fair to "short anybody" in Atlanta by cutting his official visit short. 

"I didn’t think it was fair to short anybody. If we gonna do it, we gonna do it all the way."

Lee announced his Redemption Tour on March 30. In that video, he made it clear that he planned to have security with him to protect his family after they received death threats following his first visit to Atlanta.

Lee also announced that his next stop will be Toronto, Canada, for his first international food review,
