SALT Bae's biggest fan has slammed the celeb chef and said he is 'not his hero anymore' after being shrugged off when they finally met.

In a video posted to his social media profile, the scorned fan can be seen talking to Gokce and praising him as an inspiration.
He said: "I literally try to be just like you.
"I've learned everything from you, I make my own videos just like you because you are my inspiration.
"You helped me make my own business."

It comes after the controversial Turkish chef was slammed by football fans around the world, and even YouTube star Jake Paul, for his antics at the World Cup final in December 2022.
The fame hungry chef was blasted after badgering Messi for a selfie, as well as cringey videos with the Argentina captain, Kylian Mbappe and Robert Lewansowski.
His rap sheet also includes picking up the World Cup trophy, a privilege reserved for the winning players, heads of state and FIFA officials, and grabbing and biting a player's medal.
This led to him being banned from events including the US Open Cup football tournament and Rolling Loud music festival.
After the World Cup final, FIFA was forced to make a humiliating admission that he should never have been on the pitch in the first place.
It’s not the first time the celebrity chef has tried the hog the limelight while rubbing shoulders with football stars.
His followers have slammed an "uncomfortable" resurfaced Instagram video with Kylian Mbappe.
Sitting alongside the steakhouse magnate, Mbappe can be heard saying: "It was a good night.
"A pleasure to come with my man."
Salt Bae replies: "Always."
The pair shake hands and Mbappe winks at the camera before Salt Bae gives the footballer a kiss on the cheek.
