Over the years, stars such as Hailey Bieber, Judd Apatow, Leslie Mann and Kylie Jenner have been called out publicly for their poor treatment of serving staff at bars and restaurants.
And Monday saw James Corden join the list after he was lambasted online by the owner of NYC restaurant Balthazar, Keith McNally, for being the ‘most abusive customer’ ever.
The restaurateur shamed the Late Late Show host over two incidents – one in June and another in October – in which he yelled ‘like crazy’ at staff over an omelette and fries – and demanded free drinks ‘this second’.
‘James Corden is a Hugely gifted comedian, but a tiny Cretin of a man. And the most abusive customer to my Balthazar servers since the restaurant opened 25 years ago,’ McNally wrote in his scandalous Instagram post yesterday.
Corden, who is paid $36million-a-year for his Late Late Show on CBS, was forced to apologize after the restaurateur’s post immediately went viral.
James Corden became the latest celebrity to be called out for rude behavior after he was briefly banned from New York’s Balthazar restaurant amid claims that he was horrible to staff
Owner Keith McNally described two incidents in which Corden mistreated his staff, which the Late Late Show host has since apologized for
The restaurant, pictured on Monday, is a popular spot for celebrities, tourists and locals alike – everyone from Anna Wintour to Sienna Miller has eaten at Balthazar
Hours later, McNally posted an update and revealed that Corden had phoned to apologize ‘profusely’, and that he was no longer banned from the restaurant.
‘Anyone magnanimous enough to apologize to a deadbeat lay about like me (and my staff) doesn’t deserve to be banned from anywhere. Especially Balthazar….all is Forgiven,’ he said.
The scandal is just the latest headline-making moment in which a famous name has been exposed for their less than impressive behavior while out in restaurants and bars.
In 2020, Hailey Bieber apologized to a former New York City restaurant hostess for not being nice during their interactions.
Meanwhile, multiple other servers have slammed celebrities in viral TikTok videos recalling their conduct.
Here, FEMAIL reveals the stars who have been called out for their less than positive interactions with staff.

Former New York City restaurant hostess Julia Carolan went viral in 2020 when she rated the celebrities that she encountered while working in some of Manhattan’s trendiest eateries.
She gave model Hailey a rating of just 3.5/10 based on multiple encounters.
‘This is gonna be controversial,’ Julia explained. ‘I’ve met her a handful of times and every time she was not nice.
‘I really wanna like her, but I have to give her a 3.5 out of 10. Sorry,’ she stated with a cringe.
Just days after the video was posted, Hailey shared an apology and wrote in the comments: ‘Just came across this video, and wanted to say so sorry if I’ve ever given you bad vibes or a bad attitude. That’s not ever my intention.
‘Hate hearing that was your experience with me but glad u called me out so I can do better!! Hopefully we meet again so I can apologize in person.’

Julia likely encountered the star during her time as a hostess at Nobu Downtown. The venue counts Beyonce, Rihanna, the Kardashians, and many more as fans, while TAO Group fans include Sofia Vergara, Katie Holmes, Naomi Campbell, also the Kardashians, and many more.
Ariana Grande – licked and spat on doughnuts without buying them
Ariana Grande – pictured at the 62nd Grammy Awards in January 2020 – was caught on camera licking doughnuts in Lake Elsinore and then putting them back on the rack for sale in 2015. She then posted a groveling apology video and apologised for ‘messing up’
Following Ariana’s visit, the manager claimed the shop had been demoted to a ‘B’ in its health inspection. In her apology video, Ariana said: ‘I’m gonna learn from my mistakes and I’m gonna learn from messing up.’
She’s famous for her sugary-sweet persona – but back in 2015, Ariana Grande landed herself in hot water after video emerged of her spitting on doughnuts without then purchasing them.
In a video obtained by TMZ, the Thank U Next songstress was seen standing next to a rack of freshly baked goods in Wolfee Donut shop in Lake Elsinore before subtly picking several up and licking them.
Following the incident, the manager said it contributed to the shop being demoted to a ‘B’ in its health inspection as an employee hadn’t noticed her contaminating the doughnuts and unknowingly put them on display.
And if that wasn’t controversial enough, Ariana was also overheard muttering ‘I hate America’ – which sparked outrage among her fanpage.
Posting a groveling apology video afterwards, the pop star said: ‘I’ve still got a lot to learn and I’ll make mistakes and that’s how I’m gonna learn. I’m gonna learn from my mistakes and I’m gonna learn from messing up.’

‘He wasn’t my table, I was working in a similar section, so I got flagged down a lot by this guy, and I don’t like those kinds of people, so 5/10.’

When the server Blaine Morris ran out to ask for the money which was around $60, he claimed that she threw the money at him.
Blaine, who was an actress on the MTV show Skin, tweeted: ‘That horrible moment you chase a Kardashian down the street because she forgot to pay her bill to be thrown money in your face.’
Kendall’s attorney denied the claim and said that the model was ‘extremely apologetic’ and she had ‘politely handed’ Blaine $33 plus $7 in tips.
Meanwhile, Julia Carolan had also stated how cold Kendall was towards staff in her viral TikTok video.
She explained: ‘This is another one where unfortunately I didn’t have the best experience with them. She used to come in and was pretty cold to our staff.
‘She also usually has someone speak for her and doesn’t speak to staff. I want to say I should give her the benefit of the doubt but from my experience, she was a four out of ten.’
Then in August 2020, another user @_sincindy, posted a series of video titled, ‘Rating celebs I’ve met working at LAX.’

‘My job was to pull a few look options for her to wear for the signing,’ Tahira explained. ‘I’m walking her through the racks [and] she won’t speak to me — that’s strike one. I’m asking her, “Do you want to wear pants? Or do you want to wear a dress?” She won’t say anything.
