Gordon Ramsay is a man who often attracts controversy. Ramsay’s viral TikTok video recently garnered attention, and a few days after the clip went viral, PETA decided to join the debate.
In a conversation with Insider,
PETA UK Vice President Elisa Allen said, “Gordon Ramsay is a callous man who makes a fool of himself. Intimidating gentle lambs is loutish, not amusing. What would be funny is if his children went vegan and disowned him — much like Elon Musk’s daughter disowned her father,” Allen continued.
He added, “Those lambs are just babies who want little from life but the chance to live it and not end up in this moron’s — or anyone else’s — mouth.”
The 28-second clip, which has garnered more than 10 million views since Ramsay posted it on Thursday, also infuriated some of his fans.

“I’m going to eat you! Yummy, yum, yum,” Ramsay says in the clip. “Which one’s going in the oven first?”
The lambs are startled when Ramsay steps into the pen, points to one, and says, “You!”
“Oven time,” he yells before the video ends.
“The lamb sauce was still not found in the making of this video,” Ramsay wrote in the caption, referring to the famous “Hell’s Kitchen” episode in which he repeatedly asked, “Where’s the lamb sauce?”
In the caption, Ramsay mentioned, “no animals were cooked in the making of this video.”
Ramsay once jokingly remarked that he was “allergic to vegans” and would never pardon his daughters if they dated vegetarians.
However, the “MasterChef” celebrity has recently altered his mind and even serves a vegan version of his most well-known dish, the classic Beef Wellington, in one of his restaurants.
