I doubt very much that Gordon Ramsay has ever been shy about professing his opinion on anything. The celebrity chef, renowned for his vicious put-downs and imaginative insults directed toward staff and television show participants alike, has made a career in entertainment centred around those aspects of his personality – so it should come as no surprise that his Twitter account very much reflects the brash, blunt and altogether brilliant fury of the man.
Recently internet users have started tweeting their awful dinner photographs to the celebrity chef, seeking his approval. They inevitably get torn to shreds in utterly brutal fashion for all to see. There have been some absolute crackers so far:
You could be forgiven for thinking that there was no way Ramsay could better any of those hilarious put-downs. But the guy’s a professional swearer. If you presumed that he could go no further, you presumed incorrectly. Ramsay is still rating and roasting his followers’ dinners on Twitter, and the last few days have given light to some utter gems of contempt.
This user asked Ramsay to rate his friend’s dinner
And probably wishes now that he hadn’t bothered
Lastly, though, Ramsay came up with a real humdinger – arguably his most savage response yet to this piece of advice from a follower
Unfortunately though, he didn’t seem that keen…
Perhaps Ramsay’s hilariously brutal treatment of his fans on Twitter shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to any of us. After all, it wasn’t so long ago that he told an interviewer that he wouldn’t be giving his children his fortune after he passes away.
“I’ve never been really turned on about the money,” he stated. “That’s not my number one objective, and that’s reflected in the way the kids are brought up … It’s definitely not going to them, and that’s not in a mean way; it’s to not spoil them. The only thing I’ve agreed with Tana is they get a 25 percent deposit on a flat, but not the whole flat.”
Expanding on the decision, Ramsay also revealed that his children do not fly in first class with him and his wife when they travel together; “They don’t sit with us in first class. They haven’t worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that. At that age, at that size, you’re telling me they need to sit in first class? No, they do not.”
“We’re really strict on that,” he continued. “I turn left with Tana and they turn right and I say to the chief stewardess, ‘Make sure those little f*ckers don’t come anywhere near us, I want to sleep on this plane’. I worked my f*cking arse off to sit that close to the pilot and you appreciate it more when you’ve grafted for it.”
Though it may seem a little brutal, it seems to me that his reasoning is sound enough – he wants his children to work hard for their money just as he did as a youngster – believing that the reward is in the work itself, rather than the money that comes as a result of it. As far as his Twitter followers go, it would appear that they have some way to go before he gives the rare Ramsay seal of approval to any of their culinary efforts.
