Gordon Ramsay may have upset some of his followers with a new TikTok video.

On Thursday, the British chef and restaurateur posted a video in which he climbs into a lamb pen, startling a group of animals.

"I'm going to eat you! Yummy yum yum," Gordon, 55, said in the video. "Which one's going in the oven first?"

Ramsay then pointed at one of the lambs, saying, "You!"

The 28-second video ends with Ramsay climbing into the pen as the lambs scurry away.

The video, with more than 8.5 million views and 947,000 likes, has the caption: "The Lamb sauce was still not found in the making of this video." It references a viral scene from a 2006 episode of "Hell's Kitchen" in which Ramsay yells "where is the lamb sauce" at his contestants.

He also added: 'No animals were cooked in the making of this video."

Although some of Gordon's followers were tickled by the video, others shared their concerns in the comments.

"Alright I think Gordon has finally lost it," one person wrote. "Someone do something before it's to late."

A user added, "i'm not even vegetarian but this is very sad," while another wrote, "I like you and all but you better not be serious."

Representatives for Ramsay did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Gordon is no stranger to TikTok, having grown a large following during the pandemic when he reacted to other people's cooking.

Gordon teased his second-eldest daughter, Holly Anna, in one viral video when she attempted to make one of his pasta dishes in August 2020. That same month, he called out an American woman for making British fish and chips with a microwave in another video. 

He later recalled some of the worst TikTok food videos he's come across in a conversation with Insider's Rachel Askinasi.
