A deeply uncomfortable interview between Gordon Ramsay and Sofia Vergara has resurfaced.

A resurfaced Jay Leno interview between celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and Modern Family actress, Sofia Vergara is causing outrage on social media for his inappropriate treatment of the actress.

The edited one-minute clip came back into prominence after a Twitter user, Jason Bolaños, shared the 2010 footage, writing “Sofia Vergara didn’t deserve to be treated like this. This is very very uncomfortable.”

The Hell’s Kitchen presenter is seen making several suggestive and innuendo-filled comments to Vergara, as well as joking about her Colombian heritage.

During a particularly uncomfortable moment, Vergara says, “I never scream like that in real life,” before Ramsay interjects with, “Really, only in the bedroom,” to a stunned audience.

After Leno shares a video of the actress eating, the 52-year-old suggestively says to her: “You seem like you’re enjoying that, you had a whole wedge in your mouth at one time?”

At one point she jokingly retaliates by hitting him after he slaps her on the thigh. She also looks at him and says, “this is my interview,” before Ramsay laughs it off and goes to sit next her in very close proximity.
