In a Columbia Spectator editorial of her own, Julia said, “I’ve received a lot of criticism, both to my face and in print, about the flippant comments I’ve made while appearing on talk shows to promote. Save the Dank for laste. I was harassed in one Columbia media outlet and almost censured in another, all because I made a joke about the dining hall on national television. Talk shows require a pre-interview, where the host is grilled for funny anecdotes.

Granted, I didn’t have to say anything, but under the circumstances I wanted to get through the live interview. Having examined every comment under such heavy scrutiny made me consider the implications of what I am saying. I have apologized in writing to the diner staff; they seem to understand that I was not referring to any particular person. They understand that it is a very common, if not clichéd, joke to have fun at a cafe meal. Adam Sandler did it, and so did a writer for a campus publication that upset my views.

I didn’t realize that so many Columbia students have had a reason to fight for Food Services. I also didn’t realize that mudsling is the way to criticize a thoughtless joke…You may be trying to humor your audience, but even people have feelings lunch ladies and Hollywood wenches.”

Then, in 2019, she told Glamor UK, “I went on a late night talk show; I think it was Conan O’Brien or David Letterman. I was in college at the time and I was talking about college life and they asked me if I ate in the cafeteria like a normal kid, I went ahead because I was unsure and I thought I used the word, ‘man moles.’ But I think Adam Sandler had a song at the time where there was a character on a sketch comedy show where he was playing the waitress and she had a hair net and a wrist band.

It went back at a very fast rate. The people I was with at school were angry with me. Someone wrote in the school newspaper, “she’s an elitist!” How dare she insult the workers of the cafe,” which was my intention, and it was not who I am. It was so devastating for me to know the people who worked hard at school, cleaning the trash, feeding our meals that I was insulting them, because that was not my intention. So, I wrote something in the newspaper. I sent -issued a handwritten apology to the cafe staff, but I learned a valuable lesson besides ‘think before you speak’. That kind of thing is so big now because of social media. You have to be careful about how what you say is perceived and the impact it will have.”
