Celebrity chef and TV personality Anthony Bourdain condemned a "shameful" interview by Hillary Clinton on Wednesday in regards to her comments about the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal.

"I have to say, Hillary's interview with Fareed Zakaria was shameful in its deflection and its disingenuousness," Bourdain said to begin what became a lengthy Twitter rant. "[K]now what Hillary Clinton is NOT? She's not stupid. Or unsophisticated about the world. The Weinstein stories had been out there for years."

During her interview on CNN, Clinton claimed she had no prior knowledge of the sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations against Weinstein. The controversy began with a New York Times report last week that said Weinstein paid off sexual harassment accusers for decades.

"I certainly didn't, and I don't know who did," she said on the matter. "But I can only speak for myself, and I think speak for many others who knew him primarily through politics."

Clinton added that the allegations against Weinstein made her feel "sick." This was a more pointed rebuke than her original brief statement Tuesday in which said she was "shocked and appalled by the revelations." Prior to that, Clinton had been slammed by critics for her extended silence on the matter.

Weinstein was a longtime donor to Democratic causes, and helped raise millions for Clinton's 2016 presidential bid. Clinton said Wednesday that it is impossible to give back donations she received from the Hollywood producer, but she would include that money in her annual contribution to charity.

Bourdain tweeted that he by no means thought Clinton was responsible for anything Weinstein did and isn't trying to take a side in some political debate, but indicated that he and Weinstein's victims were disappointed by the response from someone who is usually "well prepared" and "well briefed." Bourdain is dating Asia Argento, who is one of the actresses who have accused Weinstein of rape.

Clinton has not responded to Bourdain's Twitter rant, but her former campaign spokesman appeared to not take kindly to his tweets.

"Go eat a scorpion or something," tweeted Brian Fallon in response to Bourdain.
