GORDON Ramsay has been branded a “snob” after calling a Costa barista an “idiot sandwich” for selling him a £3 microwaved bacon butty.
The TV star, 54, filmed the people serving him behind the till as he moaned about the lack of bacon and the state it was in.
Gordon started off by saying to the barista: “I’m Gordon, you’re Costa right?
“£3 for one rasher! And was the grill even on?
“Jesus Christ big boy you can get half a pound of bacon down the local butchers for £1.50 …
“No grilling the bacon in the microwave! How many times have I told you?” he added in the video on TikTok – after the barista said the roll was pre-made and heated in a microwave.
Hamming it up, the celebrity chef returned the bacon to the man and said: “Please. I’ll take the roll, take the bacon back.
“Tell Mr Costa to get a grill for Christmas”.
Before driving away, Gordon climbed out of his motor and held the bread buns to the man’s ears
“What are you?” he asked.
“An idiot sandwich” the barista replied laughing.
The phrase is a reference to a sketch Gordon acted in on the Late Late show with James Corden in 2016.
But many on social media didn’t find his quips funny – branding him a snob.
