Gordon Ramsay – Continues To Be As Egotistical As Ever
Gordon Ramsay continues to show his ego is much bigger than any of his prices at his many restaurants world wide, with it being reported he was racist towards Top Chef Master’s winner Marcus Samuelsson.
It is reported in the Daily Mail that in Marcus’s new autobiography that Gordon called him a ‘f****** black b******’.
The article stated:
Samuelsson, 42, said he thought it was a call from a friend in New York, but added: ‘Instead, there was screaming. “How the f*** can you come to my f****** city and think you are going to be able to cook without even f****** referring to me?”
He claims Ramsay was angry that Samuelsson had not named him when he was asked which chefs he admired.
‘On my second day I was cooking when a phone call came into the kitchen. The executive chef answered and with a puzzled look handed me the receiver.’
‘This went on for what seemed like five minutes. “I’m going to make sure you have a f****** miserable time here. This is my city, you hear? Good luck, you f****** black b******.” Then he hung up.
‘To be honest, though, only one phrase in his juvenile tirade unsettled me: When he called me a black b******. Actually, I didn’t give a f*** about the b****** part. But the black part p***** me off.’
Gordon is denying the uncorroborated claim. Saying years after the alleged incident he had auditioned Marcus to be a judge on Masterchef US, a role he did not get.
Who knows where the truth lies. Marcus wants to sell books? However Gordon is known for his ego and temper and the books publisher has decided to keep the allegations in. Will Gordon sue? We will have to wait and see.
If you want to see Gordon Ramsay at his scathing best he is currently being shown on Kitchen Nightmares on Channel NINE at 11.00pm on Tuesday nights.
