Gordon Ramsay’s latest TikTok video has sparked backlash, and animal rights organization PETA is now calling on the chef’s five children to disown him.

In the video uploaded to Tiktok, Gordon can be seen climbing into an animal pen and pretending to select a lamb for slaughter.

“I will eat you!” he says while climbing into a pen, “Yummy, yum, yum, yum, yum.”

As the lambs greet him, he jokes, “Which goes in the oven first?” before pointing to one and saying, “You!”

“The lamb sauce was still not found in the making of this video,” Ramsay wrote in the caption — a reference from the Hell’s Kitchen show in which he asked a contestant about lamb sauce.

However, not everyone saw the funny side of the video, which has over 12 million views.

PETA UK Vice President Elisa Allen told Insider about the video, in which she branded the Michelin-starred chef “heartless.”

“Gordon Ramsay is a callous man who makes a fool of himself. Bullying gentle lambs is rowdy, not amusing,” she said.

Allen went on to say, “What would be funny would be if his kids went vegan and disowned him – similar to how Elon Musk’s daughter disowned her father.

“These lambs are just babies who want little from life other than a chance to live it and not end up in that idiot’s — or anyone else’s — mouth.”
