'Salt Bae' noodles seller receives summons for posting parody video on Facebook

Police in Vietnam have summoned a noodle seller, who became a viral star following his role in the “Salt Bae” video, for questioning over posting a parody of the viral video on Facebook.

People who viewed the video, called “Noodlegate,” were outraged when they realized it was a parody.

Consequently, Nguyen Doan Hai, a noodle seller in north Vietnam, was summoned by police on Thursday.

Police made an official request on Sunday to Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg to investigate the video, which has over nine million views.

Police in Hue, the capital of Hue province, posted a summons on Tuesday to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, urging him to investigate the video.

Hai had originally shown the video to his customers.

“I made this to amuse myself but people felt disgusted with it,” Hai told the Cambodia Daily.

“I also made this to teach people about the history of noodles.”

Facebook told Fox News that the issue had been taken “very seriously” and it would start an investigation immediately.

Hai said that Facebook had apologized after he posted a video thanking them for their cooperation.

“They said that they would check this for me so I am sure it will be finished soon,” he said.

“Salt Bae” made international headlines in November after he fed camel with his penis in Saudi Arabia.

Camel has a high salt content and the 2015 video won international acclaim.
