Below Deck Season 11 lost another crew member after Captain Kerry Titheradge fired Chef Anthony Iracane.

The fan-favorite chef has struggled all season long, so the sad moment was coming.

However, watching Anthony spiral, especially as Fraser Olender complained, was heartbreaking for viewers.

It only worsened after the chef was let go, leading to his breakdown.

The nail in the coffin for Below Deck fans was the emotional and heartfelt crew goodbye to Anthony.

X (formerly Twitter) was on fire with Below Deck viewers expressing their not-so-happy opinions about losing the chef.

“Chef being fired is just wrong, he didn’t get help from his team and had impossible charter guests back-to-back,” read an X.

Another called what happened with Anthony crazy, and we have to agree.

A different one felt bad for the struggling chef and hoped he would get a redemption season.

“I’m gonna come back like a crazy motherf***er.” #BelowDeckAnthony’s redemption season, NOW!!!!,” said one X.

Anthony coming back or having a redemption season was brought up a lot, including in an X that showed love for him cleaning the galley after he was fired.

There was even an X that suggested Anthony would have shinned working with Below Deck Down Under Chief Stew Aesha Scott.

“‘I’m feeling destroyed’ I know he made some mistakes. But I keep saying this every week.  He didn’t get the support and help from the crew DURING dinner service like we have seen in all other seasons and franchises. I feel bad for Chef Anthony 🥺,” wrote one X user.

An X also exclaimed that it was time to riot after what had happened with Anthony.

X was heartbroken over Anthony leaving, and the situation reminded several users of another Below Deck fan favorite chef’s situation.

Chef Anthony Iracane reminds Below Deck fans of Chef Hindrigo ‘Kiko’ Lorran

Below Deck Med alum Chef Hindrigo “Kiko” Lorran was beloved by fans but not Captain Sandy Yawn. Kiki’s firing rocked Season 5 of Below Deck Med, and fans have often thought he deserved a redemption season.

“as if i didn’t suffer enough tonight, now i have to watch Anthony, the sweetest kindest chef in the #BelowDeck franchise since Kiko, get fired, “ read an X.

Another declared that Anthony and Kiko were great chefs who just needed a little help in the galley.

The end is near for Below Deck Season 11 who has now lost three crew members.

As Monsters and Critics previously reported, Captain Kerry said the season lost a record number of crew members. That means more crew members could be leaving, and you can read why fans think Xandi Oliver might be next here.

Below Deck airs Mondays at 9/8c on Bravo. Seasons 1-11 are streaming on Peacock.
