Thumbs down Gordon Ramsay's sexist rant against Aussie TV host

Quote:
The fallout from Gordon Ramsay's sexist rant against A Current Affair host Tracy Grimshaw has gone global, including in his homeland.
British media have published reports about Ramsay's weekend rant at the Melbourne Good Food and Wine Show, in which he made foul comments about the Nine Network host's appearance and personal life.
His tirade has also been reported in the US and New Zealand - further tarnishing his public image following recent allegations that he indulged in a long-running extra-marital affair.
A day after being interviewed by Grimshaw, Ramsay told shocked food lovers in Melbourne the TV host was "a lesbian" and needed "to see Simon Cowell's Botox doctor".
He also showed a picture of a woman, who appeared naked on all fours, with multiple breasts and the facial features of a pig, saying: "That's Tracy Grimshaw."
Representatives for the chef, known for his foul mouth on his various TV series, said the comments were a joke, but Grimshaw hit back on her show, calling him an "arrogant narcissist" and a bully.
She also said his rant had upset her mum and that she had no interest in ever interviewing Ramsay again.
In his native Britain, The Mirror sent up Ramsay in a report headlined: "Good thing Gordon Ramsay is such a sex god".
"Gordon is such a handsome devil, a veritable sex god come to Earth to live among men, you can understand why he might feel that mere mortals are unworthy of his presence," The Mirror report said.
The Mail Online also carried a report about the outburst and the angry reaction it had generated among audience members and women's groups.
Celebrity watcher Perez Hilton agreed, writing on his website that Ramsay, often in trouble for his mouth, had gone too far with his "sexist, homophobic remarks".
Other celebrity sites have also carried angry comments.
"Ramsay definitely went too far. He should be ostracised for this horrible unfair unwarranted attack on Tracey [sic]," wrote Georgie on the celebuzz site.
Ramsay was also copping it on gay websites.
"Ramsay is just a little snot with no breeding or class ... " one site user wrote on samesame.com.au, which says it's Australia's No.1 gay and lesbian lifestyle site.
Another observed: "Gordon is quite unattractive - I think many people both gay and straight would agree with that fact."
Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard has joined the public backlash.
Ms Gillard said Ramsay's tirade showed bad manners and bad taste.
"I understand from the publicity that Gordon Ramsay is a good chef," Ms Gillard said.
"I think perhaps what he should do is confine himself to the kitchen and make nice things for people to eat rather than make public comments about others."
Ramsay will be on the Gold Coast for the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show from Friday to Sunday.

I love Tracy. He is indeed a bully and I'm glad she took on his comments.

Re: Gordon Ramsay's sexist rant against Aussie TV host

he shouldnt have said that... yes it was totally stupid and idiotic..

but the way channel nine is acting its as if he has killed someone. their report tonight was a joke... taking things he said BEFORE the incident that were totally fine jokes (and didnt offend the people) and making them out to be just as bad as what was said about tracey.

Re: Gordon Ramsay's sexist rant against Aussie TV host

Oh I can only imagine what A Current Affair are doing in response to this lol.. the ACA vs Today Tonight fued on Aussie tv is absolutely cringeworthy but Im going off on a tangent..

Gordon Ramsey is shown up for being the narcistic arsehole that he is by these comments. Good on Tracey for responding!

Can someone explain what Tracey did or said that annoyed Gordon so much?

Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.

I really hate the fact that Ramsay is so popular in the UK. Can't stand him.

Re: Gordon Ramsay's sexist rant against Aussie TV host

Tracy Grimshaw can dish it out but can't take it when the heat is on her. I don't condone what Gordon did in any sense but Tracy being allowed to exploit him afterwards is pathetic. Her mother? All of a sudden we should care about her feelings and Tracy's as well when she herself dishes into other people for a living. What about Matthew Johns' mother or his wife's mother after Tracy tore into him ON NATIONAL TELEVISION? What about the 'chk chk boom' girl's mother? Surely she didn't care for them. I think this was a well deserved bite on the arse from the Matty Johns interview to be honest. I just think the double standards are incredible in that she is sacred and no one else is and it would not surprise me one bit if this was a publicity stunt to boost ACA's sagging ratings or to help her secure a job for 60 Minutes. If Gordon Ramsay only did this for publicity for himself, he definitely knew what he was doing.

I've always had the impression that he is very popular. He's always got some crap on the prime-time TV.

I really hate the programme Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. It's so tediously formulaic

Completely irrelevant but I actually thought she did a good job in that interview. I saw the "attack" on Matthew Johns as justified. Her job is to represent the general consensus, which was a condemnation on what he did. Just because he decided to accept responsibility does not automatically mean he should garner sympathy for it.

It's the same in this Ramsay instance. Even Julia Gillard and Perez Hilton spoke out about his comments, so why on earth can't the woman at the center of it all be heard? Unlike Ramsay and Johns, Tracy has done nothing wrong and it would be extremely unfair to critisise her for responding to such remarks.
