Chef Gordon Ramsay In Trouble After Puffin Hunting Scandal?
I think it’s fair to say that Gordon Ramsay loves meat with the same amount of gusto that he hates vegetarians. In case you’ve forgotten, Gordon angered Paul McCartney after making several off color remarks about the vegetarian lifestyle that were just plain dumb. Obviously this very, VERY pro-meat chef might upset the meat-free, but is he now even starting to piss off his own fans too? YEP!
Earlier this summer, Ecorazzi reported that Ramsay spent time in Poland Iceland hunting puffins. You see in Britain, where Ramsay regularly records, puffins are endangered and therefore protected by law. However, Gordon took the special trip to Iceland so he might get the chance to hunt the otherwise endangered bird. As if that wasn’t enough, after shooting the puffin he proceeded to rip out its heart and eat it raw.
Shortly after the episode the bosses at his network were inundated with complaints over the vulgar action and many suspected that Ramsay might be in some real trouble with the law. But the watchdog group Ofcom has just concluded that since the bird is not protected in Iceland, Gordon broke no rules.
Will Gordon Ramsay see a backlash from his beastly ways? I certainly hope so!
