LOL: Fancy restaurant bans 'tiny cretin of a man' James Corden for life over being an entitled douche
James Corden is widely considered (by me) to be the least funny of all the late-night hosts. Which is saying something, since all of them suck at life. It's also disappointing since I enjoyed his cameos on Doctor Who. But what Corden lacks at being funny he makes up for by being *checks notes* and entitled douche at fancy, schmancy NYC restaurants. That's the word from Keith McNally, owner of Balthazar.
McNally went scorched Earth on Instagram calling Corden a "tiny cretin of a man" who is the "most abusive customer ever." Corden received a lifetime ban over the horrible way he treats the staff.
There were two offending incidents. The first was when Corden claimed to find a hair in one of his dishes. Regretable and embarrassing for the restaurant, sure. Clear grounds for an apology and a replacement. Corden decided to act like a diva instead: “Get us another round of drinks this second. And also take care of all of our drinks so far. This way I write any nasty reviews in yelp or anything like that."
Incident two involved Corden's wife ordering an egg yolk omelette. There was the tiniest bit of egg white in the omelette. Again, regrettable. It must have been mortifying to see a tiny bit of egg white in an egg yolk omelette. A polite, non-entitled person would have asked for a new one. Instead, "You can't do your job! You can't do your job! Maybe I should go into the kitchen and cook the omelette myself!"
In fairness to the unfunny man, Corden has apologized to the restaurant owner now that he has been publically embarrassed. Being bullied into apologizing is kinda Corden's thing. He also finds himself embroiled in food-related social media drama more than any other late-night host.
