The director of the new Anthony Bourdain documentary is getting backlash for using artificial intelligence to "deep-fake" his voice. 

The film has been getting rave reviews, and much of the narration is from the late celebrity chef. In an article for the New Yorker, however, the filmmaker revealed three lines spoken by Bourdain were actually created using artificial intelligence. 

That caused an uproar on Twitter with critics calling it unethical.
