PETA want Gordon Ramsay's family to disown him over lamb video

Watch: Gordon Ramsay picks out lamb to kill and eat in controversial TikTok video

PETA have called on Gordon Ramsay's children to disown the celebrity chef following a controversial TikTok clip.

In the video posted to Ramsay's TikTok account, the Kitchen Nightmares star appeared to be picking out a lamb for slaughter to then eat.

In the video Ramsay can be seen climbing into a pen of lambs and saying: "I'm going to eat you! Yummy, yum, yum. Which one's going in the oven first?"

In response, the animal rights organisation have asked for Ramsay to be disowned by his children.

In a statement they said: "Gordon Ramsay is a callous man who makes a fool of himself. Intimidating gentle lambs is loutish, not amusing."

They added: "What would be funny is if his children went vegan and disowned him — much in the way Elon Musk's daughter disowned her father. Those lambs are just babies who want little from life but the chance to live it and not end up in this moron's — or anyone else's — mouth."

The caption for the video also includes the message: "No animals were cooked in the making of this video."

The clip in question has been viewed over 10 million times since it was first posted last week.

In the past, Ramsay has been critical of vegetarians and vegans but has softened his stance in recent years introducing meat free menus to his restaurants and cooking vegetable based versions of his famous dishes.

On a recent episode of Masterchef in the US he admitted he "loved" vegan food after the cooking competition held its first ever vegan round.

Ramsay has yet to comment on either the TikTok clip or PETA's response.
