Celebrity restaurateur Keith McNally has taken aim at Lauren Sanchez in a late-night Instagram rant, branding Jeff Bezos’ fiancée ‘revolting.’

McNally shared a carousel of recent pictures of Sanchez and Bezos, and proceeded to skewer the pair in a post that went up late Monday night.

‘Does anybody else find Jeff Bezos’ New wife – Lauren Sanchez – ABSOLUTELY REVOLTING?’ he wrote.

‘What an ugly and F***ing SMUG – LOOKING couple they make. Is this what having 1000 Billion dollars does to people?’

McNally’s seemingly unprovoked roast comes a week after Sanchez and Bezos made several public appearances together in Washington, DC at the White House‘s state dinner for the Prime Minister of Japan and to present the Courage and Civility Award – an annual grant of $100million that Bezos distributes.

It is not clear why McNally took aim at Sanchez and Bezos specifically. 

The future Mrs Bezos has so far been defended by her celeb pal Chrissy Teigen, who touted Sanchez’s admirable qualities. 

‘She’s actually incredibly dynamic, accomplished and kind, and everyone who knows her would say the same,’ wrote the entertainment personality and wife of John Legend. 

MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle also jumped to Sanchez’s defense, writing: ‘No. I think she’s accomplished, kind, smart and loved. Social media is fun, but this is not. It is just mean for no reason. If we all took a breath and thought about what it feels like to be mocked and teased, we’d do a lot less of it.’

The owner of enduring New York City hot-spots Balthazar, Pastis, Minetta Tavern, and Morandi has previously picked several fights with high-profile visitors to his restaurants.

In October of 2022, he started a weeks-long feud with then late-night host James Corden, who reportedly screamed at McNally’s Balthazar staff over an all-yolk omelet his wife had attempted to order.  

Corden, who has on multiple occasions been pegged as difficult to work with, defended himself on-air and in a New York Times profile at the time.

He apologized, which smoothed things over for a bit, but only until McNally got his hands on a copy of the London Times, in which Corden denied ever screaming at anyone.

‘I don’t want to over-egg the pudding, but in Friday’s London Times Corden flip-flopped and told a massive lie AGAIN:’ began McNally.

‘”I never screamed at anyone, I didn’t shout, didn’t call anyone a name or swear or use derogatory language … How is it remotely a thing? When that person who posted the story wasn’t even there.”

‘On second viewing, I found his TV “confessional” contrived and phony. The actor will say anything to save his bacon.

‘In the scheme of things my opinion means nothing, but after Friday’s interview and a second look at his fraudulent confessional, I’ve given up on James Corden. For Good,’ he wrote.

Over the years, McNally has proven himself to be a lightning rod for controversy with Instagram posts that frequently enflame the discourse.

He has, since he joined the platform, been a periodically staunch defender of Woody Allen, who has been plagued for decades by his decision to become romantically involved with his stepdaughter Soon-Yi Previn, with whom he remains to this day.

Allen was later accused of sexually assaulting his daughter Dylan Farrow, whom he had adopted with then-partner Mia Farrow in 1991.  

He has always denied her allegations, and was never charged – though a Connecticut prosecutor said there was probable cause for a criminal case.

Earlier this year, McNally apologized for something he wrote on Instagram in the immediate wake of the barbaric October 7 Hamas attacks on Israel.

‘The More Utterly Repugnant The Facts, The Greater The Responsibility Becomes To Listen To The Other Side,’ he wrote below a picture of the retaliatory strikes Israel was executing against the terror group.

He later seriously recanted his statement, strongly condemning Hamas and their terror activities.

‘I want to make it clear: Those who continue to look away from or fail to condemn Hamas’ horrific terror are not serving the cause of Palestinian freedom. They are endorsing cold blooded murder, rape, kidnapping, torture,’ he wrote on October 10.

In November, exactly one month after the unprovoked invasion of Israel, he wrote: ‘If those asking for better conditions for the Palestinians prefaced their request by denouncing the savagery of Hamas’s October 7th attack and that the taking of civilians hostages is an act of cruel and obscene wickedness, I’d have three times as much sympathy for them.’
