Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is no stranger to stirring up controversy.
The 55-year-old TV presenter sparked outrage after he posted a 28-second video on tik tak or he playfully chose lambs to eat.
“Yummy, yum, yum, yum, yum,” he said in the video, climbing over the fence into the yard.
“Which of them will go into the oven first?” he asked before pointing to the lamb he wanted and saying, “You.”
“The lamb sauce was still not found at the time of making this video,” he jokingly captioned the video.

The video attracted 7.7 million views and many were outraged that Chef the owner would consider slaughtering these lambs.
“Okay, I’m not a vegan or a vegetarian, but this is out of the box,” wrote one person.
“Don’t play with your food, Gordon,” another said jokingly.
“Okay, I think Gordon has completely passed out. Someone do something before it’s too late,” said a third.
“Gordon, please leave them alone,” wrote a fourth person. “Find lamb sauce, not lamb.”
Many fans wondered if the video was in response to a feud with a vegan TikTok user who called out Ramsay because of his love of meat.
Last year, a British chef was scolded by TikToker That Vegan Teacher, who sang: “Eating animals is wrong, Gordon Ramsay. It’s wrong to hurt animals, Gordon Ramsay. Share this song, Gordon Ramsay.”
Ramsay replied to clip duet in the app and paired it with footage of him eating a hamburger.
