Gordon Ramsay takes swipe at complaining Cornwall neighbours by offering them a burger to ‘put a smile on their face’ – The Sun
GORDON Ramsay took a swipe at his neighbours in Cornwall today during a live Instagram video.
Gordon, 53, made the dig after reports suggested that the locals were not happy that he and his family were isolating at their second home during the global coronavirus pandemic.
Taking to social media to make an epic burger, Gordon pledged that he would donate £10,000 to NHS charities if he wasn't able to make the snack within ten minutes.
Filmed on a mobile phone by one of his daughters, the hot-headed chef tried his best to complete the challenge in the given time but sadly he didn't succeed.
Admitting to his fans that the Ramsay's had actually already donated the money, Gordon then held up the delicious-looking burger.
And as he displayed the finished product to his followers, he told them: "I'm not going to eat this. I'm going to give it to the neighbours next door. Hopefully that might put a smile on their face."
He then ran out of the kitchen door and towards what appeared to be his neighbours' house, shouting: "Love thy neighbour!" while his daughter giggled.
Gordon has angered locals by shacking up in his £4million second home in the county after the government announced strict rules to stem the spread of Covid-19.
Earlier this week it was reported that a Cornwall resident has threatened to report Gordon to police and it seems time is not healing the resentment felt by some locals who have taken to Twitter and Instagram to vent about Gordon.
He was called "disgusting" and accused of "flouting government rules" by one user.
They raged: "Don’t you realise that by doing that you’ve possibly brought the virus with you and because Cornwall is not your main residence, if you and your family get sick you will place yet more strain on an already fragile infrastructure.
"I’m reporting you to the police. What you’ve done is against the law and I hope they force you back to London."
Another bluntly wrote: "P**s off out of Cornwall, you're not wanted."
A third vented: "Cornwall MPs have specifically asked for people with a second home not to do this. You might be rich and famous but you’re not special and you’re setting a bad example! Really disappointing."
The angry comments came after The Sun reported how Gordon was being targeted by some living near Polzeath Beach for going against government guidelines and moving his family to Cornwall during the lockdown.
