Brooklyn Beckham has hit back at critics of his cooking career.
The son of superstars Victoria and David, 24, has used his Instagram platform as a launchpad for a career as an aspiring celebrity chef, but has often been met with glee by scathing critics for his videos.
His cooking has come under fire in the past, with many criticizing his simple recipes, use of expensive ingredients or accusations of nepotism.
In a new interview with Insider, Brooklyn insisted he’s not fazed by the criticism because he knows he “works his ass off” and “cooking makes him happy.”
He said: “To be honest, I’m used to the hate. It doesn’t really bother me. Cooking makes me happy. I’ve got more important things to worry about than people talking crap about me… I’m doing my job and working my ass off’.
Speaking to the outlet, Brooklyn said: “Honestly, I’m used to the hate. It doesn’t really bother me. Cooking makes me happy. I have more important things to worry about than people talking crap about me…
“My message to them is to keep writing whatever they want. There will always be people who will try to pull you down.
“I’m doing my job and working my ass off. So they can keep writing whatever they want, but it won’t bother me — I’ll just keep doing my job.
Just last month, Brooklyn shared her latest cooking video on Instagram, cashing in on a brand partnership.
Taking to the photo-sharing site, he talked fans through making an avocado butter cake as he detailed the various stages before tucking into the treat at the end.
In the caption for the post, Brooklyn announced that the video is a partnership with Chosen Foods, an avocado oil brand he’s featured before, and in the latest clip, he showed off both the pure oil form and the spray version of the ingredient.
Back in June, he came under fire for using an entire bottle of the same oil to make fried chicken – with fans declaring it “unaffordable” – while his mother has said in the past that avocado oil is part of her warrior diet.
Brooklyn, which has previously come under fire for its ostentatious ingredients, including truffle and beef rib for £60, was again ribbed for its choice.
In 2021, he found himself at the center of a furious culinary frenzy after he baffled Today show viewers by appearing in a live cooking segment – during which he simply ‘assembled a sandwich’.
Brooklyn appeared on the US program when he shared his ‘recipe’ for an English breakfast sandwich, a dish he ‘learned from his great grandmother’.
Explaining that he developed a passion for cooking while in prison, during which he began posting videos of himself whipping up meals on Instagram, he then walked hosts Hoda Kotb and Carson Daly through the process of making sandwiches.
But while the Today hosts were quick to praise his simple creation, viewers were outraged by the decision to feature such an easy-to-assemble vessel, with many describing the clip as “disturbing” and “painful”.
