For too long, James Corden has seemingly been everywhere. In cars with celebrities. On TV. In otherwise dear movies.
“For James Corden to appear uninvited in the film adaptation of a beloved musical” is a severe curse on social networks. It’s scary because it’s possible. Even likely.
The world recently learned that Keith McNally banned James Corden from Balthazar’s for his long-rumored egregious behavior as a customer. He ended up reversing the ban.
But now, Corden calls him a “fool” and claims he hasn’t Really done something bad And it seems that they are going to ban him again.
Just a few days ago, 71-year-old restaurateur Keith McNally called James Corden.
He called the polarizing comedian “the most abusive customer of my Balthazar servers since the restaurant opened 25 years ago.”
He banned Corden from the establishment after two miserable experiences with him as a client. two wretches, documented experiences.
Some people, maybe Corden fans (they exist, believe it or not), were shocked.
But many on social media celebrated such a public call, especially one that contained so many details.
Yes, some people just find it deeply annoying. But insufferability Besides, this wasn’t the first anecdote about Corden’s egregious behavior.
People took to Twitter to share social media posts from years ago about Corden’s egregious behavior in public. These were not new anecdotes, but existing complaints.
There are two possibilities:
Or, various people have written near libelous fanfiction about James Corden being horrible in public. Or a group of people in various countries and cities have witnessed it, much to their chagrin.
Sadly, McNally clearly has a forgiving soul. His misplaced compassion led him to retract the ban on him.
Just hours after his initial call, the restaurateur announced that Corden had “profusely apologized.”
Which makes Corden’s recent statement extremely strange. the boy had days to figure out what to say in an interview, but opted for total denial.
James Corden spoke with The New York Timespresumably speaking to the reporter with more respect than to a waiter.
“I haven’t done anything wrong, on any level,” he boldly insisted during the interview, which is to further any project unlucky enough to include him this time around.
“I feel so zen about the whole thing,” Corden alleged. “Because I think it’s very silly.”
“I just think he’s beneath all of us,” Corden said of the egregious behavior allegations.
“It’s below you,” he apparently scolded the reporter. “It’s certainly below your post.”
Yes, many famous and wealthy people who fear their image being shattered suddenly develop concerns about journalistic standards.
If we put ourselves in McNally’s shoes for a moment, this was a wild week. A few wild days, really.
After careful consideration, he publicly exposed a man famous for his inordinate behavior towards his employees. He then felt bad that it went viral, accepted an apology, and lifted the ban.
And what does the supposedly apologetic man do? He turns around and claims that he didn’t really do anything wrong. He basically called McNally and McNally’s employees liars. Either that, or he thinks the shameful behavior described is actually acceptable.
“I have no desire to kick a man when he is down. Especially one worth $100 million,” McNally posted on Instagram after the interview.
“But when James Corden said yesterday in the NY Times that he had done ‘nothing wrong, on any level,’ was he kidding?” he asked.
“Or was he denying that he abused my servers?” McNally mused. “Whatever Corden meant, his implication was clear: he didn’t do it.”
“Although I did not witness the incident, many of my restaurant floor staff did,” McNally said.
“They had nothing to gain by lying. Corden did it,” she reasoned very solidly.
“I wish James Corden would live up to his Almighty initials and come clean,” McNally said.
“If the supremely talented actor wants to regain the respect he had from all his fans (all 4) before this incident,” he hilariously suggested.
“Then,” McNally suggested, “you should at least admit you did something wrong.”
He concluded: “If you go one step further and apologize to the 2 servers you insulted, I will let you eat for free at Balthazar for the next 10 years.”
