Chef Gordon Ramsay under fire for killing goat on TV
New Zealand : Michelin Star Chef Gordon Ramsay came under fire after he was seen killing a goat on his TV show Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted on National Geographics. Many of the people criticized him for his act on the social media.
Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted follows the chef as he explores "people, places and flavours the world has to offer", according to National Geographic.
The show series was started in Peru and then brought Mr Ramsay to New Zealand's South Island, where, according to NZ Herald, the chef aimed to "discover the secrets of Maori cuisine".
In New Zealand, chef Monique Fiso shows him edible wild plants and then sends him to kill a mountain goat. It was Mr Ramsay's shooting of the goat that has received a lot of backlash online.
Later, they cook the goat and serve it with a berry chutney and a salad.
