The Hell’s Kitchen chef laid into Aussie TV interviewer Tracy Grimshaw at a cooking demonstration in Mebourne, allegedly calling her a “lesbian” who needed to "see Simon Cowell’s botox doctor”. He also insinuated that she was an ugly pig.
That’s not going to win you many fans, Ramsay.
While she was hosting A Current Affair, the nightly news discussion show, Grimshaw hit back at the chef, saying: “I’m not surprised by any of this – we’ve all seen how Gordon Ramsay treats his wife, and he supposedly loves her. Obviously Gordon thinks that any woman who doesn’t find him attractive must be gay.”
Although Ramsay insists that it was all a tongue-in-cheek joke, Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has waded into the spat: “I think I can describe his remarks as reflecting a new form of low life," he said in a radio interview. "I just drew breath when I saw the sort of stuff which was said about her. I just think that’s off and offensive.”
Gordon Ramsay: a “low life” misogynist or a clever business man who knows how to draw headlines? What do you think?
