Jamie Oliver Snaps at Reporter Who Calls Him a Fatass
TV’s Naked Chef, also known as Jamie Oliver, had some harsh words for a reporter who dared to accuse him of gaining a bit of weight.
While it’s generally considered bad form to point out weight gain, it should be noted that Oliver has, in recent years, been traveling around lecturing school kids about eating healthily and not getting fat. Oliver was in Australia to help kick off the opening of the Australian Ministry of Food, which is “a school that offers free cooking lessons and healthy-eating education,” according to ABC. One bold reporter posed the delicate question, and the celebrity chef huffed:
“I don’t know. I am very healthy… Are you from a tabloid? Thank you for noticing, you bitch.”
“I do my best… Working in the food business is quite hard when someone is constantly asking you to try things. I eat fresh, I train twice a week. I could definitely do better, but I am trying to do my best like most people when they hit 30.”
A spokeswoman for Oliver said “bad pictures” were to blame for the reporter’s accusations of weight gain.
