Since Flay's bitter divorce from his third wife, Stephanie March, he has been plagued by cheating rumors —including links to Mad Men's January Jones and fellow chef Giada De Laurentiis — and clearly there are some people who feel very strongly about his alleged infidelity, as evidenced by a protest outside the Brunch at Bobby's with Bobby Flay event, which was held in conjunction with the New York City Wine and Food Festival, In Touch Weekly reports.

The female protesters appeared at the event topless with red letter "X's" over their breasts and the word "cheater" sprawled across their chests, the outlet (which also obtained pictures of the protest) reports.

"The rumor is that Flay is being targeted in these protests by a fundamentalist group from Oklahoma ever since all the cheating allegations from his divorce surfaced," a source told In Touch Weekly.

And this is not the first time that Flay has been surprised by protesters accusing him of cheating; his Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony was disrupted earlier this year when a plane flew overhead with a banner reading "cheater."
