Brooklyn Beckham slammed for ‘out of touch’ recipe during cost of living crisis
| Last updated
Brooklyn Beckham has been slammed for sharing a cooking video, with viewers describing it as 'out of touch'.
As you will be well aware, the UK is in the throws of a cost of living crisis (or cozzie livs, if you're into abbreviations).
Energy bills are up, inflation is high and people's stagnant wages mean many are unable to afford what they once could - including things like, you know, heating.
But Brooklyn doesn't need to worry about that, as the 23-year-old is the privileged child of Victoria and David Beckham.
Recently, he made a career turn by announcing his desires to be a chef, and he's been busy sharing his culinary creations with his 14.8 million Instagram followers.
While many people support his aspirations, some have slammed his recent recipe for being out of touch with reality.
The dish in question is fresh pasta with truffle cream sauce, topped off with a heavy serving of fresh truffle shavings.
Accompanying the video is a caption which reads: "In my kitchen no such thing as too much truffle."
Considering a single truffle can range from being around £20 to literally hundreds, it's no surprise a lot of people won't be trying this recipe for themselves.
Taking to the comments section, one person wrote: "I wish I could afford the idea of 'no such thing as too much truffle'."
"We're in a Costy Livs Crisis Brooklyn," said another, while a third added, "Completely out of touch."
A fourth chimed in: "Because that's what you'll find in the kitchen of an average 20 yr old... truffles. Let alone anyone that grinds each day for a paycheck."
And a fifth, who said celebs 'live in a different world', added: "Most people can barely afford to eat at the moment and this kid is waffling on about truffle."
But not everyone was against Brooklyn's post, including this person who said: "Let the man just be, so much negativity. We live in a world where people love to hate."
Another wrote: "Some comments are out of this world. I cannot afford truffle either but still I enjoyed the video and really don’t care who and how he bought it.
"What about unfollowing him instead of writing mean comments."
And then there were those who were there simply to critique his cooking, with one suggesting it needs a tad 'more pasta water'.
"That would be nowhere near enough for me to not be hungry," said a second alongside a laughing face emoji.
LADbible has contacted a Brooklyn Beckham rep for comment.
