Here’s a very hot take for you: Gordon Ramsay acted like an idiot sandwich with all the obnoxious, embarrassing fixings during this 2010 The Tonight Show interview with Sofia Vergara, which recently came to light again in the public eye:
“Did I scare you guys?” the Modern Family star says in reference to her performance in a skit which took place on the show earlier that night. “I never scream like that in real life. It was all acting.” The 52-year-old Ramsay leans in, touches her arm and says “Really? Only in the bedroom?” to the astonished cries of the live crowd.
Later, when shown a still shot of Vergara eating a slice of pizza, Ramsay makes another sexually suggestive comment: “You seem like you’re enjoying that. You had a whole wedge in your mouth at one time? … You just pick it up and stick it in?”
The 46-year-old Vergara seems frustrated with the restaurateur/television personality’s comments. “No, no touching!” she yells near the end of the interview. The reactions from social media have been reasonably full of shock and awe as well:
My jaw is on the floor. Is he drunk? How could he not get that message? He owes her a HUGE apology. #gordonramsay

Sofia Vergara is the highest-paid actress on television. Far more of a star than Gordon Ramsey. That really triggers outright misogyny in some men. #creep

“Sofia Vergara didn’t deserve to be treated like this. This is very very uncomfortable,” one commenter said. “My jaw is on the floor. Is he drunk? How could he not get that message? He owes her a HUGE apology,” said another.
