BuzzFeed legal editor Chris Geidner is not Harvard Business School professor Benjamin Edelman, the world’s most famous customer of Sichuan Garden in Woburn, Massachusetts.
But as far as many people on social media are concerned, he’s the same guy.
@chrisgeidner Mr. Gardner. What a colossal waste of time. Get a job you Harvard-coddled loser.

Reached by email, Geidner said as far as he knew, the mistaken identity comes courtesy a Fox News article about Edelman that embeds a tweet he wrote.
His coworkers aren’t really helping out.
i wholeheartedly endorse trolling @chrisgeidner out of the mistaken belief that he is the Harvard prof who was a dick about $4
