The 55-year-old sparked outrage after sharing a video of himself picking out a live lamb to cook and eat.
"I'm going to eat you!" he says while climbing into a pen. "Yummy, yum, yum, yum, yum.
"Which one's going into the oven first?" Gordon says, looking at the lambs before pointing at one and saying, "You!"
"Oven time!" he adds while sneaking up behind the lambs.
"The Lamb sauce was still not found in the making of this video," he captioned the TikTok.
Many TikTokers slammed the celebrity chef, with one user writing, "Ok I am not a vegan or vegetarian but that crosses the line."
"Bro has officially lost it," another wrote.
"I'm not even a vegetarian, but this is kinda sad," a third wrote.
"Who left Gordon unsupervised 😂," a fourth added.
"Gordon! They're so cute though!" someone else said.
"Gordon, I think you need a break from TikTok," another said.
Others defended him, with one user writing, "People just cant taken a joke... .. I just don't get it why people cry about everything nowadays 😕."
"Everyone losing their minds, do they not know where meat comes from?" another wrote.
"I don’t get why people are so upset by this. People pay for this every day at the grocery store," a third said. "Go vegan if you are so upset by this!"
Some wondered if the video was Gordon's response to TikToker That Vegan Teacher who sang a song last year, telling the chef that eating animals is wrong.
"Eating animals is wrong, Gordon Ramsay. Hurting animals is wrong, Gordon Ramsay. Share this song, Gordon Ramsay," she sang in a video that Gordon duetted at the time, showing himself eating a beef burger.
