Michelin star chef Gordon Ramsay has time and again mocked the vegan diet but now it seems he has taken a U-turn from his stand. On Tuesday, he announced that he’s going to try the vegan diet. This shocked the entire clan of fans who knew how Gordon Ramsay has mocked the plant-based diet in past.
Ramsay took to his Twitter account to post a picture of a cheeseless pizza topped with tomato, mushroom, pine nuts and pesto and captioned it as "Going to give this whole #vegan thing a try. Yes guys you heard that right. Gx."
His followers went in for a shock after reading this as several of them posted memes saying "We fear change" and "This tweet was so savage I had to re-read it to confirm what I was seeing."

PETA's official Twitter also expressed its views on Gordon Ramsay's choice of trying a vegan diet.
FINALLY, we knew this day would come 💁😉 Matilda knows what the people want; keep on adding #vegan options to your restaurant menus 👏🙌— PETA: Turkeys are killed at 6mo, don’t eat babies (@peta) April 16, 2018
One vegan item on your menu’s would sure be nice! I have gone to your restaurant’s and just had fries and drinks, but would love to taste your cooking!— Jherek Bischoff (@jherekbischoff) April 16, 2018
Prior to this declaration Ramsay posted another short video of a lit-wood stone oven and captioned it as "There's something cooking in The City of #London. Can you guess what it could be?"
As we later found out that the video was of the same vegan pizza of which he later posted the picture.
Although the change in the dietary stance of Gordon has not been yet confirmed, it is not less a shocking statement by a chef who had earlier posted his own full-form of PETA which only a meat-lover would say.
In February Ramsay tweeted, "I'm a member of PETA! People eating tasty animals......" This tweet was re-tweeted more than 43,000 times.
PETA originally stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. On earlier occasions, the Chef has invited trouble as he had mocked vegans and the vegan food.
