People who think #PartsUnknown disparaged Pittsburgh by not just talking about how great it is are the problem with this city.— John Hamilton (@jham1496) October 23, 2017
Pittsburgh was portrayed as it really is. It's painful but real. We have gentrification, racism, blue collar and tech. #PartsUnknown 1/— Melissa (@mimigirl013) October 23, 2017
Dear World, please don't judge Pittsburgh based on what you saw on #PartsUnknown . It's really thriving and really lovely.— Tory (@KJUGTory) October 23, 2017
