Gordon Ramsay is catching heat over a nearly decade-old clip of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Earlier this week, Twitter users unearthed a 2010 video in which Ramsay is seen behaving inappropriately toward his fellow guest Sofia Vergara. Ramsay has been blasted for the way he treated the actress during his appearance, as he continued to say sexually suggestive comments, and, at certain points, even placed his hand on the Vergara's thigh.

"Did I scare you guys? I never scream like that in real life," Vergara said, referencing a previous skit. "It was all acting."

"Only in the bedroom?" Ramsay responded, while touching her arm.

Vergara goes on to share photos taken from her European vacation; one of the pictures shows the Modern Family star enjoying a large slice of pizza. 

"You seem like you're enjoying that. You had a whole wedge in your mouth at one time?" Ramsay asks about the photo. "You haven’t heard of a knife and fork?"

"You don’t eat pizza with a knife and a fork," a visibly irritated Vergara responded. 

"You just pick it up and stick it in," Ramsay replied. 

Sofia Vergara didn’t deserve to be treated like this. This is very very uncomfortable.

The situation became more awkward when Vergara and Ramsay began bickering over food from their respective native countries. Vergara stood up and jokingly threatened to hit the chef. Ramsay returned to his seat, obviously amused, and continued to criticize the Colombian dessert Vergara had brought. 

"Fish and chips—that's all you eat," Vergara said, speaking on British cuisine.

Ramsay then tapped Vergara on the thigh, which prompted her to yell, "No touching!"

Twitter users weren't having it.

@GordonRamsay you treated Sofia Vergara with utter disrespect. You sexually harassed her to the point where you actually touched her. She was making her disdain for you obvious. What the fuck is wrong with you? Never watching anything you do again.

Gordon Ramsey’s actions can be described the same way he describes food:
