Gordon Ramsay is under criticism for his behavior towards Sofia Vergara in a resurfaced interview on the Jay Leno: fans of the actress are saying Ramsay and the host are both cancelled.
The chef appeared with the Modern Family actress on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2010 and the interview has now resurfaced online with viewers severely questioning Ramsay’s intentions.
At one point, Vergara asked Ramsay and the host if her screaming in a previous skit was scary. She asked, “Did I scare you guys? I never scream like that in real life. It was all acting.”
Ramsay asked in response, “Only in the bedroom?” Vergara made a face at the comment and Leno answered the chef saying, “You would never know.”
Leno then brought up an advertisement which read, “If Modern Family wins the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy, Sofia Vergara will run naked down Sunset Blvd.” It also added, “Cast member may change without notice.”
Vergara responded, “That’s ridiculous. I cannot run,” to which Ramsay said, “Knock yourself out.”
Leno then showed a few pictures of Vergara eating and having a good time with her friends during a trip to Italy and Greece. Ramsay asked the actress, “You seem like you’re enjoying that. You had a whole wedge in your mouth at one time?”
He added, “You haven’t heard of a knife and fork? You don’t eat pizza with a knife and a fork. You just pick it up and stick it in.”
The two then started fighting about a Colombian delicacy Vergara brought onto the show, which Ramsay continually insulted, prompting Vergara to stand up and pretend to hit him.
During this interaction, he also hit her on the side of the thigh, which prompted her to get irritated and yell, “No touching!”
Fans of the actress have taken intense issue with Ramsay acting the way that he did and with Leno for not speaking up and stopping him. They took to social media to express their thoughts about the issue.
Ramsay has not yet spoken up about the whole incident.
