Jamie Oliver Ripped To Shreds After Asking For Twitter's 'Favourite Go-To Breakfast'
Oh, Jamie Oliver - why must you try to ruin our lives? Ok, healthy diets and all that, but trying to banning Turkey Twizzlers (which we're definitely not over btw)? He's also taken on energy drinks and 2-4-1 pizza - and now he's had the audacity to ask for our 'favourite go-to breakfasts'.
Like he deserves to be gifted with that information. And people clearly don't want to tell him, because he's been ripped into left, right and smack-bang centre.
The 43-year-old celebrity chef took to Twitter to ask his seven million followers about their fave brekkie, but he was quickly torn apart by social media users far and wide - and the responses are everything.
Favourite go-to breakfast?

One user showed they had no interest in Jamie's healthy eating campaigns, as they replied: "2 Square sausage, 2 fried eggs, Black Pudding, 4 rashers of bacon, Baked Beans, Fried Bread, Tea with 3 sugar and a Mars Bar."
Another added: "If we're talking a Tuesday, dearest Jamie, then Imma have myself TWO (yes, two) Dominos large Margherita pizzas with extra cheese (thin crust cus I'm on a diet). I know, I live my best life dont I?! #TwoForTuesday."
Meanwhile, a third commented: "STOP TRYING TO BAN EVERYTHING AND BUY SOME SODDING PLATES TO USE IN YOUR RESTAURANTS YOU WOODEN BOARD LOVING TURKEY TWIZZLER HATING TWONK." A clear message there, mate.
Some have given him what he presumably wanted, commenting with suggestions such as: "Pomegranate seeds, blueberries, Oat cakes and Avocado, hummus, tomato and black pepper on toast." That many ingredients in a breakfast? Behave.

Another person said: "Poached eggs on an English muffin. If it's a weekend then i'll add smoked salmon and homemade hollandaise sauce."
And a third added: "Eggs softly scrambled in homemade lightly-salted butter, topped by slivers of the best smoked salmon Scotland has to offer with a sprinkling of finely-ripped coriander on well-toasted self-baked sourdough. Serve with cool cranberry juice with strong espresso to follow."
These are clearly big fat lies. Who decides to make hollandaise sauce as part of a convenient 'go-to breakfast'? No one, that's who. Perhaps these guys are just trying get a mention in his upcoming recipe book, presumably entitled I Will Ban Everything You Love.
While all Jamie's meddling in the nations's diets ultimately comes from a good place (and yes, we could all eat more healthily; it certainly wouldn't do any of us any harm in terms of our general well-being), the constant hectoring is certainly pissing people off.
Ditto the attempts to ban things. Yes, we get it, these things are unhealthy. However, no one - NO ONE - has ever bought 2-for-1 pizzas and thought to themselves, 'Ah, perfect for my diet. This will provide the inner cleanse I so sorely need.' Leave us alone, ffs.
Just days ago, the chef found his new target: cartoon characters that are used on cereal packets and other products consumed largely by kids.
Just stop now, Jamie. We beg you.
