Many believe the demand Gordon Ramsay for Korean police to be sent out to guard him on the train is ridiculous!
Gordon Ramsay, a well-known celebrity chef worldwide, has visited South Korea.
When Gordon Ramsay personally visited the first Gordon Ramsay Burger restaurant in Asia, which is housed in the Lotte Tower in Jamsil, Seoul, on November 10, he attracted a lot of media interest.
He reportedly made a specific request, which many Korean internet users thought was unfair.
According to Kyunghyang Shinmun, Gordon Ramsay requested that safety precautions be taken whenever the chef rides public transit from the police, Seoul Transportation Corporation, and Korea Railroad Corporation (KORAIL).
In particular, Gordon Ramsay’s company filed a complaint with the National Police Agency requesting on-site control personnel to watch over the chef for an hour starting at 11 AM on that day while he rides the train.
Gordon Ramsay traveled to Seolleung Station and Seoul Forest Station from Jamsil Station. Jamsil Station and Seoul Forest Station both have security personnel on duty thanks to the police.
According to reports, Gordon Ramsay’s agency requested the change out of concern for safety following the recent Itaewon disaster.
However, as the word circulated, there were conflicting responses.
“Gordon Ramsay is a real celebrity therefore his request is understandable,” said a netizen. He has the freedom to request these things, therefore it’s better to take precautions and send out security personnel than to have an accident later.
However, internet users said, “Well, if he is so scared, he can take a car.” “I don’t think this is enough for just one person to travel the train,” Is he in some way the president? If he’s that concerned, he should just travel in a private vehicle. “He should just employ his own personal bodyguards”, “He should have just hired his own private security guards, why ask the police?” and “I don’t think I would even recognize him even if he sat next to me on the metro.”
