Jordanian authorities leapt into action this week after a website published a Photoshopped image of renowned Turkish chef Nusret Gökce, best known as Salt Bae, showing him with Jesus at The Last Supper.
They arrested journalist and media personality Mohammad Al Wakeel – owner of Al Wakeel News – for “ridiculing Jesus”. The journalist remains under investigation and was questioned by a Cybercrime Unit for for allegedly inciting “sectarian strife.”
Al Wakeel, above, removed the image and apologised, saying it was a mistake by an editor in training.
If found guilty, Al Wakeel could be jailed for between six months and three years.
Gökce owns Nusr-Et, a small steakhouse chain, he’s reportedly making moves to open restaurants in New York City and London, in addition to his seven other existing locations.
