Another day, another resurfaced interview scandal. This time, it's celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay who’s making headlines for the wrong reasons. At issue is an interview he gave on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno from 2010. In the clip, he interacts with Sofia Vergara in a way that many find unacceptable.
"Did I scare you guys?" Vergara asked Ramsay and Leno during the interview, referencing her screaming in the previous skit. "I never scream like that in real life. It was all acting."
"Only in the bedroom?" Ramsay responded, touching her arm.
"You would never know," Leno said after Vergara made a face and the audience gasped.
Later, Leno referenced a headline that read, If Modern Family wins the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy, Sofia Vergara will run naked down Sunset Blvd. *"
"That's ridiculous. I cannot run," Vergara responded. "Knock yourself out," Ramsay said, apparently in reference to her chest.
When Leno showed a shot of Vergara eating a slice of pizza, Ramsay said: "You seem like you're enjoying that. You had a whole wedge in your mouth at one time?"
"You seem like you're enjoying that. You had a whole wedge in your mouth at one time?"
"You just pick it up and stick it in," Ramsay added
When she presented a dessert she made, Ramsay tried it and called it “s—t fudge.”
Users on social media were not amused. Tweeted one, "This is awful behavior [sic] and shame on a Jay Leno for not stepping in as well," while another wrote, "Sofia Vergara didn't deserve to be treated like this. This is very very uncomfortable."
Other resurfaced videos and tweets have recently gotten Drake, Kevin Hart and Louis C.K. in trouble too. Hart was forced to step down as host from the Oscars as a result of resurfaced homophobic tweets.
