Gordon Ramsay can dish it, but apparently he can’t take it! The celebrity chef, 52, has no shortage of harsh words for cooks on shows such as MasterChef and Hell’s Kitchen, but when Piers Morgan criticized a dish at one of his restaurants, the Hotel Hell alum had an NSFW response.
It all began earlier this week when Ramsay took to Twitter and posted a video clip of a new vegan dish now on the menu at his London restaurant, Bread Street Kitchen. “It’s happened … the #vegan roast has landed at @breadstkitchen! #roastrevolution,” he tweeted. Hours later, 53-year-old Morgan responded by tweeting, “Oh [for f–k sake], Ramsay… not you as well? This looks utterly revolting.” He also included two vomiting smiley face emojis.
The drama continued on Tuesday, March 12, when Ramsay was a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden and the talkshow host brought up the beef. “What do you say to Piers’ critique? Corden, 40, asked his guest.
Not surprisingly, the MasterChef Junior judge had an equally profanity-laden reply. “So Piers Morgan is now a food critic,” he said as the audience laughed and applauded. “Go and f–k yourself. Seriously, really? Seriously?”
Still, Ramsay, who has been very outspoken about his dislike of vegan food (he said he was allergic to vegans in 2016) took the opportunity to explain his flip flop. “Here’s the thing, we have three girls. Moving trends. I mean, veganism is on the rise, so we ought to adapt,” he told Corden. “We just have to eat a slice of humble pie.”
However, Morgan wasn’t buying it. When a Twitter follower alerted him to Ramsay’s late-night clap back, he tweeted: “Is this the same @GordonRamsay who when asked in 2016 if he had any allergies, replied ‘vegans’ – and who last year tweeted that PETA stands for ‘People Eating Tasty Animals’?”
The former America’s Got Talent judge later doubled down when another Twitter follower called him a “troll” for criticizing Ramsay. “Gordon hasn’t changed his mind about vegans because he’s suddenly seen the vegan light,” Morgan responded. “He’s changed his mind so he can cash in on this absurd new craze to eat tasteless gruel.”
Morgan has also feuded with other stars in the past including, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian and Ariana Grande. He and the “Thank U, Next” singer recently called a truce when they bumped into each other at a Los Angeles restaurant.
