James Corden has been banned from a New York restaurant for allegedly “abusing” employees.
Balthazar’s manager said Corden was an “outstanding comedian of great talent” but a “small man’s instinct” as he shared details of the alleged incidents online.
Keith McNally posted part of the manager’s report on Instagram, accusing Corden of being “extremely annoyed” with his employees on two separate occasions.
Mr McNally wrote: “James Corden is a comedian of outstanding talent, but a petty man, and the most abusive customer of my Balthazar servers since the restaurant opened. 25 years ago.
“I don’t usually 86 a customer. I am 86’d Corden today. It doesn’t make me laugh. “
Eighty-six in a customer is a colloquial term that usually means to stop serving a person or kick them out of the establishment.
In his post, Mr McNally went on to share details of “a funny man’s humorous treatment of my staff”, adding that Corden had behaved “similarly in his old restaurant”. me, Cafe Luxembourg, a few years ago.”
In an alleged incident earlier this month, Corden began “screaming like crazy” and repeatedly telling the server “you can’t do your job”.
The report added that the server was “very shaken” but “continued to complete her shift.”
Corden’s representatives have been approached for comment.
