Ramsay has now opened up on the controversy surrounding his decisive decision to terminate the contracts of over 500+ staff members overnight. This came after Gordon Ramsay Restaurants put out a statement that they would be temporarily closing due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
When restaurant critic, Marina O’Loughlin took a hit at Ramsay’s decision on Twitter, it wasn’t long before Gordon fiercely responded.
“You’ve clearly have never run a business, and yet across these very difficult times for all, you hide behind your pathetic tweets, get a grip will you !!! Cheap shots again and again from a bitter egotistical critic yawn!”, tweets Ramsay in response.
The TV chef didn’t stop there, choosing to take fire at the critic’s journalism career. “You complain about food for a living! Closed restaurants with your poison pen because they didn’t kiss your arse, ever thought about giving back across these difficult times???? I’ve done nothing BUT put my hands in my pockets for years!”, continued Ramsay.
It’s fair to say that the Hell’s Kitchen star isn’t taking the criticism lightly…
