Nigella Lawson is a public female who loves unadulterated, unfiltered and 'unclean' foods - and we adore her for it. Her joy of cooking, eating and hosting is in total with contrast to today's macro counting, intermittent fasting and juice-cleanses.
Basically, the 58 year-old award-winning author, TV chef and entrepreneur is nothing short of a national treasure and should not be trifled with.
That's why we are shocked to hear that a TV presenter would even deign to ask Lawson a sexist question about her intimate presenting style.
On Australia's The Project, presenter Hamish MacDonald asked Lawson, 'I've been intrigued to read you've been rejecting all of the analysis of your cooking shows… all this kind of innuendo.'
He continued, 'You're saying: 'I don't do it on purpose, it's not part of the plan'. But I've got some quotes.'
He then proceeded to quote Lawson, 'My empty vessels are ready to be loaded, I adore the way it comes bulging up over the rim.'
Lawson, notably flustered, attempted to respond saying, 'Yes but why, tell me this – it's an empty vessel… When I say it…'.
Despite Lawson, who declined an OBE from the Queen in 2001, looking visibly irritated by his remarks he pressed on, 'You have…a way of saying things.'
Lawson hit back, 'I have this way of people projecting things on me. I'm so not. I don't get it. I need you to explain to me.'
In light of the #MeToo movement and more, doesn't it seem like time is up on these sexist questions?
Oh, and we have one thing to say to Hamish: leave Nigella alone.
