Footballers have a habit of putting their multi-million pound feet in it on social media and former Manchester United and England defender Rio Ferdinand is no stranger to a Twitter storm.
His latest gaffe involves the classic dish of Nasi goreng – fried rice mixed with vegetables, meat and sweet soy sauce, and sometimes topped with a fried egg – found throughout South East Asia.
As The Straits Times reports, whilst on a recent trip to the Singapore Grand Prix, the pundit tweeted a picture of himself in his hotel robe tucking into a plate of Nasi goring with the caption “Robe game is nice!! Nasi goreng lunch. Keeping it local in #Singapore.”
The tweet sparked outrage amongst Indonesians who were furious about perceived appropriation of a dish they consider an important part of their cultural heritage. Plus, it also inspired a weird cat picture, naturally.
Geranium's Rasmus Kofoed has decided to stop serving meat at the restaurant currently ranked number two on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list. But the Danish chef isn't yet willing to go purely plant-based.
