He's hardly known as a man who minces his words, but this time professional savage Gordon Ramsay could have gone too far on one of his fellow chefs. Seriously. It's fucking brutal, man.
He branded chef Michel Roux Sr a 'pompous old fart' after he banned diners from posting pictures of his restaurant's dishes on Instagram.

Michel, 76, put up a sign at Michelin-starred The Waterside Inn telling customers not to take photos of their food.
Gordon, 50, called the move 'bloody pompous', adding: "It's a compliment to the chef the fact that customers want to take a pictures of dishes they've paid for - it's 2017.
"It's a free promotion they should be grateful for. He's just an old fart who's forgotten to move on.
"Customers vote with their feet, pictures create huge followers and excite potential business."
He added: "Can you imagine being asked not to take a picture of Ed Sheeran singing?"

French chef Michel said this week: "I'm really getting so upset about people taking pictures. We put up a card at the door - 'No photos, please'."
A six course tasting menu costs £167 ($218) at the restaurant. Pretty damn expensive.
Michel hit out at diners who love taking pictures, saying: "What are they doing? Maybe once during the meal you want to take a little photo of something because it's unusual.
"But what about the flavours? A picture on a phone cannot possibly capture the flavours."
It comes after Gordon agreed to eat a pineapple pizza - which he hates for obvious reasons - if enough people donated to his charity.
In an Instagram post he said: "I've got a proposal for YOU: if we can hit 500 donations in the next 48 hours, I will eat this f**king god-awful PINEAPPLE pizza on Facebook Live. Don't forget, your donation also gives you the chance to be my VVIP on #thefword."
Brutal he may be, but still. LAD.
