The Greatest Feud in Wellness History: Moon Juice vs. Father John Misty

The quarrel is about a stolen crystal

Grab your green juice and prepare yourself: the founder of Moon Juice and indie artist Father John Misty are having a social media showdown. Moon Juice became infamous outside of the tight-knit wellness community when founder Amanda Chantal Bacon’s food diary for Elle went viral. Despite her last name, the resulting product was not exactly a diet of Big Macs. The much-maligned list of ingredients Bacon consumed included ho shou wu, umeboshi, maca and cordyceps, and no, those aren’t iPhone autocorrections. A day in Bacon’s life involves consuming $1,200 worth of health food and practicing meditation. Moon Juice is also notorious for being a Goop-approved supplement (check out their Sex Bark recipe), mixed up by granola girls Gwyneth Paltrow and Shailene Woodley.

Father John Misty is most famous for his sad songs, but now he’s becoming known to a broader audience–for insisting he stole the rose quartz from the Moon Juice shop in Silver Lake nearly six weeks ago . The ongoing feud has been documented on Instagram, where Father John Misty responded to Moon Juice’s plea for the return of their rose quartz. Their appeal called for the safe return of the crystal, and no, Spencer Pratt did not hack their account. “This loving rock has given so much to an entire community and has much more to share. To whomever took her out the door, you do not want the energy of a stolen crystal, please trust me! Anyone who can help her find her way home will be hugged and fed, no questions, just thanks,” the social media post read.

On his own Instagram page, Father John Misty falsely admitted to stealing the crystal from its natural habitat in Silver Lake. The feud peaked when Father John wrote, “Your smoothies are inconsistent to say the least but largely impossible to steal so that is an injustice that I must face, and I accept with an open heart knowing that each watery gulp is an invaluable teaching moment,” adding the prayer hands emoji. Now, Father John Misty is hawking rose quartz earrings on Instagram, writing, “You definitely DO want the energy of these rose quartz earrings in your life.” For those who aren’t wellness obsessed, and don’t plan on meditating or consuming a $60 bottle of Sex Dust, consider purchasing a pair of quartz earrings, with no bad energy.
