D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser took to her personal Facebook page Tuesday night to express her annoyance with mumbo sauce.

"Is anybody else annoyed by Mumbo sauce ? I wish people would stop suggesting that it is quintessential DC. I’m just saying I was a full grown woman before I had heard of mumbo sauce! So there, I’ve said it," she wrote. 

Mumbo sauce, a sticky,sweet, and sour sauce paired with chicken wings, has been a D.C. staple for ages.

Food publication Eater D.C. confirmed that it was the mayor's post.

Mumbo sauce-defenders of the DMV let Bowser hear it.
