Here's the reply he shared to Wendy's tweet:
"What took you so long," questioned Gordon Ramsay in a GIF reply to the tweet. He thus became a part of Wendy's roasting contest, asking them to go ahead and take him down. The response that Wendy's followed up with was a hit with social media users. Take a look:
