Videos of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro feasting on a steak dinner prepared by a celebrity chef at a time many in his crisis-wracked nation are going hungry has drawn fury from opponents of the embattled socialist leader.
Maduro is seen puffing on a cigar from a personalized box while he is served a steak by Nusret Gökçe, a Turkish chef and worldwide restaurateur better known by his nickname Salt Bae.
But with Venezuelans struggling to feed themselves amid hyperinflation and widespread shortages many in the opposition have taken to social media to denounce the meal as offensive.
