BUZZ: Wannabe chef Brooklyn Beckham trolled for frying chicken in ‘about $25 worth of avocado oil’

This video is cooking up a storm.

Photographer-turned-wannabe chef Brooklyn Beckham is being trolled online for frying chicken in an excessive amount of avocado oil.

The 24-year-old posted the clip on Instagram Tuesday in partnership with Chosen Foods, telling his 15.4 million followers in the caption that he loves using the brand’s oil “for frying because of its high smoke point and neutral flavor.”

In the video, Beckham is seen coating chicken breasts in a milk mixture before rolling them in a blend of spices and flour and then frying them in a hot pan.

“Wow all those ingredients for two pieces of chicken!!!” wrote one person.

After the eldest son of Spice Girl Victoria Beckham and soccer star David Beckham poured an entire bottle of avocado oil — which retails for $24.99 — into his pan, fans flooded his comments section.

“Thats a LOT of oil,” wrote one follower.

“There are people dying in the world from starvation – you used enough oil and milk for about 20 people. But you wouldn’t understand that,” commented another.

“That’s at least $25 worth of avocado oil 😮,” added a third critic.

Brooklyn launched his social media series, “Cookin’ With Brooklyn,” on Facebook Watch and Instagram in 2021.

Insiders familiar with the digital show told The Post last year that it took a team of 62 professionals to help Brooklyn demonstrate how to make a sandwich — including a “culinary producer” who approved the recipes, nine producers and five camera operators.

“It’s unheard of,” a senior TV executive said. “It’s the sort of crewing you would expect on a big TV show.”

Brooklyn, who has no professional culinary training, was subsequently slammed for claiming his new career as a “chef” paid for his $1.2 million luxury sports car.

“Hey, man! What do you do for a living? Your car’s awesome!” asked Daniel Mac in a TikTok video at the time.

“Um, I’m a chef,” Brooklyn replied after realizing he recognized the influencer.

“You’re a chef? Really? Are you, like, the best chef in the world?” Mac asked, to which the London native responded, “Tryna be!”

Becoming a “chef” is Brooklyn’s third attempt at a career.

Beckham previously attempted to play soccer and become a photographer.

As a teenager, he wanted to become a professional footballer like his famous father but was dropped by London club Arsenal at 15.

Brooklyn then took photography and media studies at a private London college and was accepted to study photography at the Parsons School in New York; however, he dropped out after less than a year after feeling homesick.

Then, in 2017, he released “What I See,” a book of 300 “personal” photographs, including one of his mom petting an elephant.
