Gordon Ramsay has landed in another controversy after he posted a TikTok video on Thursday, July 28, in which he climbs into a lamb pen as the group of animals moves away. The British chef and restaurateur captioned the video, "The Lamb sauce was still not found in the making of this video." It was in reference to a viral scene from a 2006 episode of 'Hell's Kitchen' in which Ramsay yells "where is the lamb sauce" at his contestants.

The 28-second video has gone viral with more than 9.3 million views at the time of writing and over 947,000 likes. In the video, as he climbs onto the pen, he says, "Yummy, yum, yum, yum, yum. Which one’s going in the oven first?”. The chef then goes on to point at one of the animals and claims “you.” As the lambs scurry away in fear, he concludes the video by saying, “Oven Time.”

Over the past few months, Ramsay has dealt with a lot of controversies on TikTok especially by reacting to other people's cooking videos. Elisa Allen, PETA UK's vice president of programs told LADbible, "Gordon Ramsay is a callous man who makes a fool of himself: intimidating gentle lambs is loutish, not amusing, what would be funny is if his children went vegan and disowned him – much in the way Elon Musk's daughter disowned her father. Those lambs are just babies who want little from life but the chance to live it and not end up in this moron's – or anyone else's – mouth."

There have been criticisms and backlashes across social media for his action as well. Shalin Gala, Vice President of People for ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) tweeted, "Hey @GordonRamsay, taunting baby lambs to pick who's the next victim of your knife is shameful. Just stop. And a reminder, #SilenceOfTheLambs was just a movie, not for real life." One of the users stated, "#gordonramsey #Lambtotheslaughter #chef ENOUGH TO MAKE YOU BECOME VEGETARIAN @GordonRamsay Selects The Next lamb To Slaughter"

However, a few users are coming out in support of the chef. A user on Twitter stated, "Is he supposed to pretend lamb isn’t yummy because they’re like…in ear shot? Facing backlash for being insensitive to his food? Is he supposed to be sad and humble himself for the lamb becoming his food? A lot of sadness then. Let’s be real; I see a goat, I see it’s food…".

Supporting this tweet, another user said, "It's just the REEEEEEEE! generation doing what they do best, go insane when someone does something they don't like...We need to just ignore them just like a toddler in their 'NO' phase..." Also another user tweeted, "Americans are way too far removed from their food. If you’re offended by Gordon Ramsay picking out a lamb to eat, you’re a spoiled child. Also, go outside and touch some grass."
