I guess he’s not backing down.

After finding out the lambs she was keeping on her property as a favor to Celebrity Chef Gordon Ramsay were due to be culled, Victoria Beckham contacted PETA and appealed her friend to back down. However, it appears that the efforts have only amused Ramsay. From the article,

“But Ramsay insists he can win the former Spice Girl over: ‘As long as I make Victoria a nice pair of lambswool knickers to keep her warm for the winter I think she’ll be fine, don’t you?’

As we wrote about earlier, Victoria Beckham allowed Chef Ramsay to graze the little lambs on her UK Estate because he had very little land of his own in London. A devout vegetarian, Beckham never suspected the lambs might be for something other than wool. She was ‘horrified’ when she learned they were headed to Ramsay’s London gourmet restaurant. As PETA’s Europe director Poorva Joshipura said, “People are rallying to spare the lambs Posh grew to love. With soy ‘lamb’ kebabs and marinated mock meats, everyone wins, including the animals.” 

Alas, this will probably not have a happy ending.  We’ll keep you posted…
