Amidst all the craziness at yesterday’s A-League grand final, the MasterChef judge was caught on camera shoving a fan during a heated argument. 

The footage obtained by The World Game, shows fans calling out for George to ‘pay his staff’ before the chef shouted back, eventually pushing a fan before walking away.

The taunting comes a month after George’s restaurant was found guilty of underpaying staff by $2.46 million. One punter can be heard shouting, “Pay your staff, you dodgy b*****d.”

George has since released a statement apologising for his actions: 

“I am really disappointed with what occurred last night. 

“I regret the way in which I reacted, I am disappointed that I let it get to me, and I sincerely apologise for offending anyone.

“While I am not proud of my reaction to the situation, I was offended by a spectator yelling out abusive and derogatory comments about my family.”
