One person wrote: “Alright. I love you but you hating on vegans is getting out of hand.”
Another individual commented: “You’re just a desperate individual intimidated by the rise of the #vegan movement. It’s the future, you should embrace it.”
PETA has even joined in the conversation, tweeting: “Oh dear, Gordon. We’ve heard that old line before.
“While you’re spending time mocking the future #vegan we’re betting you one day become, most chefs are exploring healthy, animal- and environment-friendly #PlantBased dishes.”
Alright. I love you but you hating on vegans is getting out of hand.

PETA continued: “A real ‘hell’s kitchen’ is full of corpses and secretions from artificially inseminated, castrated, and routinely abused animals.”
However, a number of people have also come in their droves to Ramsay’s defence.
One of his supporters wrote: “Absolute ripper of a response. I’m a member of this PETA too then!”
Another added: “THANK YOU!!!! People eating tasty animals all the way!”
This isn’t the first time Ramsay has expressed his aversion to veganism.
In 2016 when asked by a follower on Twitter if he had any allergies, Ramsay wrote: “Vegans”.
However, Ramsay quickly updated his comment with a small correction, writing: “It’s a joke jack it’s not vegans! It’s vegetarians.”
