Critics Slam Gordon Ramsay For Posting Video Where He Selects Lamb For Slaughter

Gordon Ramsay has angered a section of his followers after he posted a video on TikTok showing him getting excited about his upcoming meal.

In the clip, the celebrity chef climbs over a small lambing jug and then playfully selects lambs to be sent to the slaughter before they're turned into food.

While looking at the flock, he says, 'I’m going to eat youuuu', and 'Yummy, yum, yum, yum, yum'.

He added: “Which one’s going in the oven first?”

The 28-second video received intense backlash online as viewers were left horrified by the careless approach to ending an animal's life.

One person wrote: “Ok I am not a vegan or vegetarian but that crosses the line.”

Another commented: “Alright I think Gordon has finally lost it. Someone do something before it’s too late.”

A third person said: “Imagine just sleeping, waking up in the middle of the night and hear this from the corner of your bed.”

While another wrote: “Those beautiful little babies, what people will do for views. It’s a sad world we live in.”

Some users even thought the video was in response to a TikTok user under the name ‘That Vegan Teacher’, who urged the Brit to go vegan.

Last year, the woman shared a video of her playing the ukulele while singing: “Eating animals is wrong Gordon Ramsay. Hurting animals is wrong, Gordon Ramsay. 

“Share this song, and if you call me a ‘donut’, that’s fine, as long as you’re vegan from now on.”

Let’s just say Ramsay didn’t take too kindly to her advice, as he responded by posting a side-by-side of the original clip while eating a burger. 

However, this didn’t come as a shock to many as Ramsay has historically condemned vegetarianism and veganism.

The Mirror reports that while promoting the BBC's Comic Relief programme in 2003, the Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares star was asked what the biggest lie he ever told was.

Ramsay responded: "To a table of vegetarians who had artichoke soup. I told them it was made with vegetable stock when it was chicken stock."

Ramsay has also been panned for tricking a vegetarian into eating a meat pizza.

During the second season of his show, members of the public were invited to try pizza samples at a struggling Italian restaurant in Hertfordshire

Ramsay had notified one of the volunteers, who had led a plant-based diet for eight years, that one of the chefs had prepared a ‘special’ pizza for him.

After the man had eaten a slice, Ramsay told him: "Unfortunately, that pizza has got a lot of mozzarella and tomatoes, but underneath all that there is parma ham."

Yeah, don’t expect him to join PETA anytime soon.
