Salt Bae slammed as ‘shameless’ over discount stunt as he offers 30% off gold-wrapped steaks to uni students | The Sun

SALT Bae has been slammed as he offered a "shameless" 30 per cent discount on gold-wrapped steaks for students- despite them still likely costing over $1,000.

The celebrity chef has come under fire from social media users after offering students a discount at his Boston restaurant Nusr-Et.

But even with the discount, students will be set back an eye watering $1,000 if they order Salt Bae's famous gold-wrapped beef, with the original price for his most expensive "Golden Armour" steak being $1,500.

Other cheaper cuts of his gold meat range from $650 to $1,100.

The 39-year-old, real name Nusret Gökçe, took to Instagram to share the news of his latest scheme while posing in front of Harvard Business School.

He captioned the snap: "I could not go to the school, education is very precious, 30% discount to all students in Boston Nusr_Et restaurant".

But angry social media users were quick to flood the Turkish-born butchers comments – pointing out that even with the discount, only the wealthiest can afford to eat as restaurants.

One fan asked: "However this is money for you, why don't you pay a scholarship to some students?"

Another wrote: "How about free meals to college students. College students ain't got no money man. We trying to get loan forgiveness as we speak".

A third commented: "It smells more like early stage customer engagement rather than any pinch of good-heartedness".

One more said: "A student cannot afford your steak get back on earth man".

Salt Bae shot to fame in 2017 after a clip of him seasoning a slab of meat went viral online.

Since then, the chef has gone on to open 22 restaurants across the US, UK, Greece and Dubai and has racked up a met worth of over £40million.

His eatery chain has seen the likes of David Beckham, Jason Statham and Naomi Campbell all diving into his extravagant meals.

Nusr-Et's menu is littered with £30 salads £70 starters, but the real excitement comes from the meat selection.

Steak prices range from around £80 to £950 – depending on whether you want your steak wrapped in real gold.

The highest price belongs to the infamous "24 karat gold coated highly marble wagyu tomahawk" steak.

This backlash comes after the fame-hungry celebrity was ridiculed after posting a "cringey" and "tone deaf" video where he bragged about his millionaire lifestyle earlier this year.

His attention-seeking antics led him to being slammed by social media users after he posted the clip to Instagram.

Fans first saw the Turkish restaurateur waking up with cucumber slapped on his eyes at his £36million palace in Istanbul, Macka Palace.

He then put on his signature sunglasses before being greeted by a worker, who served him a glass of orange juice.

The bizarre footage then showed him frolicking on a table covered in foam while a woman massages him – with his sunglasses still on.

His followers were left cringing at the two-minute long video, with one user saying: "I can't believe I watched the whole thing."
