A 2010 clip of Gordon Ramsay sexually harassing Sofia Vergara is going viral.

It's been about one full year since men discovered women were people.

Since then, major improvements have been made to the way men are expected to treat women both in the workplace and in their personal lives. It also means that people in the public eye are having to confront past behavior that would never fly today.

The latest display of shameless sexism comes from celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. While Ramsay became famous for his brazen personality and unchecked anger, a 2010 interview with Jay Leno and Sofía Vergara went too far.


The clip, which resurfaced on Twitter, shows Vergara shouting in Spanish that Ramsay is disrespecting her while swatting Ramsay's persistent hands away from her body.

In the full video, Leno piles on by asking Vergara how much weight she gained, drools over a photo of her in a bikini, criticizes the female director of his show, and does a whole lot of nothing to remedy Vergara's discomfort. While she tries her best to play along and laugh with all of it, it's clear this isn't the way she would like to be interviewed.

The full clip can be seen here and the interview begins at 1:30.

Note that Ramsay takes absolutely no time to mention Vergara in the bedroom before commenting on how she would "knock herself out" running.

This isn't the first time Ramsay has had to apologize for being degrading to women. A year before the Vergara interview, he insulated Tracy Grimshaw, an Australian TV reporter.

While at a food fair, he showed the audience a photo of a naked woman with a pig's face and said it was a photo of Grimshaw.

"I'd just like to take this opportunity to apologize for my stupid comments," Ramsay told the Nine Network. "I'm mortified that the whole thing has gone this far, my apologies.

Here's how people reacted to the resurfaced clip.

Sofía, you're a class act. Gordon, we all hope you've grown up in the last nine years.

Over 35 million people have donated their marrow worldwide, according to the World Marrow Donor Day, which took place September 21. That's 35,295,060 who've selflessly given a part of themselves so another person can have a shot at life. World Marrow Donor Day celebrates and thanks those millions of people who have donated cells for blood stem cells or marrow transplants. But how do you really say thank you to someone who saved your life?

Eighteen-year-old Jack Santos wasn't aware that he was sick."I was getting a lot of nosebleeds but I didn't really think I felt anything wrong," Jack told ABC news. During his yearly checkup, his bloodwork revealed that he had aplastic anemia, a rare non-cancerous blood disease in which there are not enough stem cells in the bone marrow for it to make new blood cells. There are 300 to 900 new cases of aplastic anemia in America each year. It is believed that aplastic anemia is an auto-immune disorder, but in 75% of cases, the cause of the disease is unknown.

It wasn't easy for his family to see him struggle with the illness. "I didn't want to see him go through something like this," Shelby, his older sister, said. "It was terrifying, but we were ready for whatever brought with it at the time."

Someday, future Americans will look back on this era of school shootings in bafflement and disbelief—not only over the fact that it happened, but over how long it took us to enact significant legislation to try to stop it.

Five people die from vaping, and the government talks about banning vaping devices. Hundreds of American children have been shot to death in their classrooms, sometimes a dozen or so at a time, and the government has done practically nothing. It's unconscionable.
