Mccartney Slams Anti-vegetarian Ramsay
SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has hit back at GORDON RAMSAY after the British TV chef criticised vegetarians.
Ex-Beatle MCCartney has been a vegetarian for 30 years and admits he gets upset when people say "stupid" things about people who don't eat meat.
And the singer was outraged when Hell's Kitchen star Ramsay recently announced he would disown his daughter if she fell in love with a vegetarian.
Veteran rocker MCCartney says, "I just read a quote from Gordon Ramsay... 'If my daughter ever grew up and married a vegetarian, I'd never forgive her.'
But even that I would forgive because it's not my affair, it's not up to me if he talks stupid or not."
The foul-mouthed chef also recently threatened to punish his children if they gave up eating meat.
MCCartney's youngest daughter, four-year-old Beatrice, is a vegan, and the recently divorced star would like the whole world to stop eating meat.
He says, "I'd be happier if everyone was vegetarian. The planet would be better off for it."
The music legend gave up meat after he met his first wife, Linda, in 1967. Linda died of breast cancel in 1998, and the star is preparing to relaunch her range of vegetarian food.
