Of course Gordon Ramsay knew he was going to have a go at Tracy Grimshaw at the Melbourne Food and Wine show. He brought a prop, for fuck’s sake. But apparently his “light-hearted banter” was “taken out of context”:
“I find it hard to believe that anyone was offended when it was a throwaway line that was not there to cause any upset… The sexist thing, that was the thing that upset me.”
Um, in what context would calling someone a ugly lesbian in need of botox and brandishing a picture of a nude woman on all fours with a pig’s face be in context? And who carries a picture like that around? And then shows it to an audience of cooking fans at a public event? And being called sexist upsets him, but he doesn’t think it would upset someone to be called an ugly lesbian pig-woman?
