British Prime Minister David Cameron is being mocked on social media after cameras caught him eating a hot dog with a knife and fork.

The highly publicized incident took place when Cameron attended a barbecue in a voter’s garden.

“It sounds strange, but in Britain’s election season, food-eating has become political,” The Washington Post said.

The image of Cameron using cutlery to eat a hot dog is seen by some as evidence that the conservative leader is posh and unrelatable, furthering the Tory party’s reputation of serving the rich.

Reports about the hot dog-eating faux pax point out Cameron’s background, which includes a royal lineage, attendance at the prestigious boarding school Eton College, and a degree from Oxford University.

Cameron has defended his upbringing.

“I went to a very posh school, I had a very privileged upbringing with parents who were incredibly loving and brilliant,” Cameron said, according to The Daily Mail. “I've never tried to hide that, I'm not going to change my accent or talk in a different way.”

The scene has resurrected an image of Labour leader Ed Miliband who was mocked for an awkward photo eating a bacon sandwich, with some speculating that Cameron used cutlery to avoid a similar fate.

Twitter users shared mixed reactions.
