Ryanair says James Corden is banned in playfully tweet as James got unbanned after apologising for being abusive to Balthazar restaurant workers

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Ryanair says James Corden is banned in playfully tweet as James got unbanned after apologising for being abusive to Balthazar restaurant workers. (Read More Here).

James Corden, host of CBS' "The Late Late Show," was briefly banned from a popular New York City restaurant on Monday after the owner accused him of being "abusive" to his staff over order errors. Corden's ban was lifted after he called to apologize, the restaurateur said. 

"James Corden is a hugely gifted comedian, but a tiny cretin of a man," Keith McNally, the owner of French restaurant Balthazar, wrote on Instagram. "And the most abusive customer to my Balthazar servers since the restaurant opened 25 years ago." 

CBS News has reached out to Corden's team for comment. McNally, who opened the restaurant in SoHo in 1997 and has been referred to by The New York Times as "the restaurateur who invented downtown," said he doesn't often "86 a customer," but that he felt he had to after his staff's experience. He pointed to two separate incidents: one in June and another in October. 

McNally wrote that in June, Corden was in the restaurant and found a hair after eating his main course. He showed it to a manager, who apologized. But then Corden allegedly became "extremely nasty" and demanded "another round of drinks" and that the restaurant pay for all of the drinks he had up until that point.

Most recently, on October 9, Corden was said to be at Balthazar with his wife Julia Carey for brunch. The restaurant said chaos ensued after his wife received her order: she had asked for an egg yolk omelette with gruyere cheese and salad, and it arrived with "a little bit of egg white mixed with the egg yolk." When the kitchen remade her omelette, they added a side of home fries instead of salad. 

"That's when Corden began yelling like crazy to the server," McNally wrote . "'You can't do your job! Maybe I should go into the kitchen and cook the omelette myself!'"

McNally said the order was fixed and Corden and his wife were given champagne glasses to "smooth things out" but the talk show host was still "nasty to the server."

“James Corden just called me and apologized profusely,” McNally wrote. “Having fucked up myself more than most people, I strongly believe in second chances. So if James Corden lets me host his Late Late Show for 9 months, I’ll immediately rescind his ban from Balthazar. No, of course not.” 

“But....anyone magnanimous enough to apologize to a deadbeat layabout like me (and my staff) doesn’t deserve to be banned from anywhere,” McNally added. “Especially Balthazar. So Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Corden, Jimmy Corden. All is Forgiven. xx.”

McNally offered two examples from Balthazar’s manager reports, where all the best celebrity gossip is hiding; he’s been sharing such reports from his restaurants on Instagram for some time now. Per the first example, Corden ate at the restaurant in June and allegedly finished an entrĂ©e that had a hair on it. The late-night host showed the hair to “manager G,” who was apologetic. 

“Corden was extremely nasty to G, and said: ‘Get us another round of drinks this second. And also take care of all of our drinks so far. This way I write [sic] any nasty reviews in yelp or anything like that,’” McNally wrote, quoting the report.

And then he wrote of one day in October when Corden and his wife dined at Balthazar for brunch. She ordered something called an egg yolk omelet:

James Corden was at Balthazar with his wife on October 9th for brunch. He asked for a table outside. Brunch Maitre D’ Allie Wolters took the party to table 301. Mr. Corden’s wife ordered an egg yolk omelette with gruyere cheese and salad. A few minutes after they received the food, James called their server, M. K. and told her there was a little bit of egg white mixed with the egg yolk. M. K. informed the floor manager, G. The kitchen remade the dish but unfortunately sent it with home fries instead of salad. That’s when James Corden began yelling like crazy to the server: “You can’t do your job! You can’t do your job! Maybe I should go into the kitchen and cook the omelette myself!” M.K. was very apologetic and brought G. over to the table. He returned the dish, and after that, everything was fine. He gave them promo Champagne glasses to smooth things out. G. said that Corden was pleasant to him but nasty to the server. M.K. was very shaken, but professional that she is, continued to finish her shift.

The biggest mystery here, other than why Corden returns to Balthazar despite apparently having bad experiences there, is what an egg yolk omelet could be. I’ve heard of an egg white omelet, and I wonder if, in his frustration, McNally misquoted the manager’s report. But if that’s the case, he did so twice. An egg yolk omelet without any egg white is a bit of a culinary impossibility and very offensive indeed. Hope they enjoy the promo Champagne glasses at home, since it would seem that once out of McNally’s good graces, you’re gone for good.
