This isn't the first time Ramsay has provoked anger from animal advocates. During one 2005 episode of "Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares," he was serving pizza samples to passersby, when one man asked if the pizza was vegetarian. Ramsay said it was, and gave the man a slice. After the man took a bite, Ramsay revealed that there was actually ham on the pizza, and laughed at the visibly upset man.

However, Ramsay appears to have demonstrated a soft spot for animals in the past. In 2006, the chef was nearly reduced to tears as he watched footage showing the treatment of pigs at factory farms.
"It's enough to make anyone turn fucking vegetarian, for God's sake." he says.
