James Corden’s comments on the Restaurant Incident may have made things worse for the owner


James Corden’s apology to Keith McNally, a New York City restaurant owner, was not able to move him. McNally is the owner of Balthazar restaurant, an upscale restaurant in New York City. He posted on Instagram last week that Corden had repeatedly abused his staff. Corden did an interview after Corden. The New York TimesMcNally seemed more angry than ever after disputing this post.

For those who aren’t familiar, McNally shared two accounts on Instagram of Corden’s alleged mistreatment restaurant staff last week. Comments added many more rumors that have accumulated over the years. Corden replied to the media on Friday by stating that he had not. “done anything wrong, on any level”McNally. McNally then posted his third Instagram story in the same debacle shortly afterwards, with a lengthy caption that began with: “STORM IN A RESTAURANT TEACUP.”

“I’ve no wish to kick a man when he’s down,”McNally continued. “Especially one who’s worth $100 million, but when James Corden said in yesterday’s NY Times that he hadn’t done ‘anything wrong, on any level,’ was he joking? Or was he denying being abusive to my servers? Whatever Corden meant, his implication was clear: he didn’t do it. Although I didn’t witness the incident, lots of my restaurant’s floor staff did. They had nothing to gain by lying. Corden did.”

McNally continued to praise Corden as well as condemn Corden. He called Corden a “sinister”. “supremely talented actor,”But he joked that he has a very small fan base. Corden wrote that he wanted Corden at least to admit to being rude to his servers at the restaurant. He ended: “If he goes one step further and apologizes to the 2 servers he insulted, I’ll let him eat for free at Balthazar for the next 10 years.”

McNally’s first blog post on the subject detailed two incidents that his restaurant staff reported to him. One was when Corden claimed that he found a hair inside his food. He demanded free drinks and threatened to ruin his restaurant’s fame by demanding that the manager do the same. The second was when Corden allegedly screamed at waiters after his wife’s meal had been served with the wrong side.

McNally’s second post stated that Corden called him just before he posted. However, that phone call didn’t seem appropriate given Corden’s tone on Friday. The Times reported that he had told Corden that the whole incident was “a complete failure”. “silly,” adding: “I just think it’s beneath all of us. It’s beneath you. It’s certainly beneath your publication.”

Corden also stated to the Times that he would likely address this controversy on Monday’s episode Of The Late Late Show. It starts at 12:35 AM. ET on CBS is available for those who are interested.
