To some once a living 'legend', now a clown, Salt Bae has managed to make the internet hate him in just a single day.
The Food Entertainer Nusret 'Salt Bae' Gökçe, quickly became a meme back in 2017 after a video of him cutting up a stake went viral. Before that same video ended, he sprinkled some salt crystals in a luscious way, which became his signature 'move'. These days Salt Bae has 22 'Nusr-Et' steakhouses around the world, which are incredibly overpriced. His most expensive piece of meat is a gold-covered tomahawk steak, that goes for $1,000:

If you search Nusr-et steakhouse reviews on Google, you will be served a couple of his steakhouses with pretty bad ratings ranging from ⭐1,9 to ⭐3 on Tripadvisor and Yelp in Miami(US), London(UK), and Turkey(EU).
What did Salt Bae do to make the internet mad?
After the FIFA World Cup Final between Argentina and France last week, Salt Bae was spotted on the football field intrusively taking photos with players from Argentina that were celebrating their win with each other, their families and friends, while making them uncomfortable, by forcing himself in between players trying to take photos, and trying to take the trophy from their hands:

And the viral moment of Salt Bae trying to get Messi's attention, by rudely pulling on his shoulder and Messi not showing any interest in him:

Following these events, FIFA has opened an investigation into how he managed to get access to Argentina's celebration on the field.
Salt Bae posted on his Instagram an old video of Messi visiting one of his steakhouses in a desperate attempt to cover up the backlash.
The comments are my favorite part.
