Gordon Ramsay loves to stoke drama on TikTok – it’s one of his favourite new pass times.

Most of the time his gentle mocking is met with laughter, but the celebrity chef rubbed a few people up the wrong way with a video he shared recently, in which he appears to be picking a lamb to slaughter.

The Lamb sauce was still not found in the making of this video…..

In the video, you could see the Hell’s Kitchen host, 55, approaching a group of lambs and saying: “I’m going to eat you! Yummy yum yum.”

The clip ends with the chef climbing into the pen and the lambs scattering away from him fearfully.

“Oven time!” he teases.

The clip was filmed in jest, but some people didn’t see the funny side, with one person writing that they had “lost all respect” for Gordon, whilst another claiming that he had gone “a little too far” this time.

“This is quite morbid,” wrote another in response to the video.

As another penned: “I’m not vegetarian but this is demented! Who taunts [their] food…”

“I’m not vegan but this makes me really sad,” concurred somebody else, echoing the sentiments of fellow critics.

Whilst some people thought the video was a little insensitive, others happily accepted it was just part of the food chain.

“Everyone in the comments not realising where their lamb comes from,” commented one.

As another wrote: “How do people think meat gets to the store? lol trust me I love animals. but it’s funny (sic)”.

“The lamb sauce was still not found in the making of this video…” the chef wrote in the caption of the video.

The comment was referencing a 2006 episode of Hell’s Kitchen in which he shouts: “Where is the lamb sauce?”.

Whilst Gordon has not responded to the backlash, a comment on the clip, posted by his account, does assure followers: “No animals were cooked in the making of this video”.
