Ramsay Rapped over Disabled Jibe
TV chef causes outrage over handicapped brigade outburst.

Gordon Ramsay has been criticised over one of his foul-mouthed tirades in which he referred to a team of cooks as a "handicapped brigade".

The TV chef has made four-letter rants a feature of his programmes, but his latest verbal assault has caused offence after it was aired on Channel 4 in an episode of Ramsay`s Kitchen Nightmares.

Disability campaigners have attacked the chef`s outburst, claiming such incidents damage the public perception of people with disabilities.

A Mencap spokeswoman said: "It is disappointing when people, especially those in the public eye, do not realise certain language can be offensive to people with a disability."

The episode was shown just hours after the star visited children at the head offices of the Scottish Spina Bifida Association, of which he is patron.

In the programme, Gordon blazes into the kitchens of failing restaurant`s in an effort to transform their fortunes.
