Comedian James Corden was banned from a restaurant in New York for displaying inhumane behavior toward the staffers. The owner of Balthazar eatery in New York slammed James Corden for being an “abusive customer” for some minor mistakes on the restaurant’s end. The comedian was banned from visiting the place but was unbanned after he apologized later. The owner reported that there have been several incidents in which the comedian has abused the staffers for minor things. As per him, James Corden is “the most abusive customer” since the business opened 25 years ago.
James Corden was banned from Balthazar
As per Keith McNally, owner of popular New York eatery Balthazar, comedian James Corden has been an “abusive customer” on several occasions. After the latest incident, the comedian was banned from visiting the place. However, the owner revealed the comedian later called and “apologized profusely“. Mr. McNally then lifted the ban, saying, “I strongly believe in second chances.” He described the comedian as “a hugely gifted comedian, but a tiny cretin of a man“.
The owner of the restaurant revealed this was not the first time
Keith McNally revealed that the first incident took place in June when James Corden showed a hair strand to the manager after his main course. The owner further added that “although this is diabolical, it happens very occasionally in all restaurants.” He said the host of The Late Late Show was unpleasant and told the manager, “Get us another round of drinks this second. And also take care of all our drinks so far.”
The second incident took place in November when an omelet was the reason behind the rift. McNally wrote on his Instagram, “Mr. Corden’s wife ordered an egg yolk omelet with gruyere cheese and salad. A few minutes after they received the food, James called their server… and told her there was a little bit of egg white mixed with the egg yolk.”
The staffers then made the dish again, but “unfortunately sent it with home fries instead of salad.” and that’s when James Corden lost it. The owner explained that he said, “You can’t do your job! You can’t do your job! Maybe I should go into the kitchen and cook the omelet myself!”
James Corden has gotten into feuds earlier as well
In 2019, James Corden got into a feud with Bill Maher after he gave his opinions on obesity. Bill Maher said, “fat-shaming doesn’t need to end it needs to come back.” James Corden decided to clap back at Bill Maher by saying,
“There’s a common and insulting misconception that fat people are stupid and lazy, and we’re not. We get it, we know. We know that being overweight isn’t good for us and I’ve struggled my entire life trying to manage my weight and I suck at it,” adding, “We’re not all as lucky as Bill Maher. Bill, while you’re encouraging people to think about what goes into their mouths, just think a little harder about what comes out of yours.“
Corden’s message was needed as Bill Maher’s tone-deaf remarks were not liked by people on social media.
