SALT Bae has been slammed as a “clown” for a resurfaced video with the World Cup star Robert Lewandowski.
The celebrity chef has found himself in the spotlight for the wrong reasons after storming the pitch after the World Cup final and pestering Lionel Messi for a selfie.
The Turkish cook and Instagram star – real name Nusret Gökçe – was seen even touch the winning trophy – against strict regulations.
FIFA was forced to make a humiliating admission that he should never have been on the pitch in the first place.
But it’s not the first time the celebrity chef has tried the hog the limelight while rubbing shoulders with football stars.
In a resurfaced Instagram video taken at his Nusr-et Steakhouse in Dubai in 2019, he can be seen gyrating back and forth while cutting steak for Bayern Munich and Barcelona star Lewandowski.
He eventually lifts the steak up triumphantly as the footballer looks in bemusement.
But his behaviour has landed well among some of his followers with one writing: “What an idiotic restaurant clown.”
Another said: “What does this guy do besides taking a ride on the success of famous people, can anyone tell me?”
One follower made reference to a video of Salt Bae serving president of poverty stricken Venezuela Nicolas Maduro steak.
“The same clown who had made tricks for Venezuelan dictator Maduro,” they wrote.
It comes as his followers have slammed an “uncomfortable” resurfaced Instagram video with Kylian Mbappe.
Other resurfaced photos show Salt Bae gatecrashing Real Madrid’s Champions League winning party in 2018.
After Real Madrid beat Liverpool in the Champions League in Kyiv, the chef was seen in video posing with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Footage showed the chef pestering the Argentina squad as they celebrated their World Cup glory with their families after the tense shootout.
In a series of videos posted on his own Instagram, he interrupted the likes of Angel di Maria, Cristian Romero and Lisandro Martinez as they posed with the World Cup, leaving the trio looking awkward.
His persistence paid off as he finally got a selfie with the striker hailed the greatest of all time.
FIFA is conducting an internal investigation to see how the chef got onto the pitch.
The world football governing body’s boss Gianni Infantino even unfollowed Salt Bae in the wake of his shameful antics.
The Turkish cook has courted a years-long friendship with Fifa president Infantino.
They have been pictured together several times, and the football chief has been gushing in his praise for the flamboyant Instagram star.
However the bromance seems to be over today after he unfollowed Salt Bae on Instagram.
