Fries are delicious and for EATING, Ruby Rose!
The actress was booted out of a New Orleans restaurant on Friday May 13 for throwing french fries at the staff, The New Orleans Picayune reports. Which is bad on so many levels: first of all, fries are delicious. Second of all, Ruby: don’t you think New Orleans has had enough?
“She was having like a tantrum. She was awful,” said Rebellion Bar and Urban Kitchen owner Seung Hong, noting that Rose “cursed out” the bartender at whom food was thrown. “She was a horrible person.”
Rose addressed the incident Saturday in a Facebook post, in which the actor noted the fry-throwing behavior was prompted by comments about the sobriety “I worked so hard to achieve. It’s hard not to react emotionally.”
Rose continued: “I have huge love, respect and admiration for servers around the world and how hard they work. I also have mad love for New Orleans and I want to come back 100 times if you will have me.”
So it’s not like she denies it- but also, what server in their right mind would “comment about someone’s sobriety?” I call BS, Ruby.
Rose was in New Orleans this week to perform at the Metropolitan Nightclub, and secured a table at the restaurant around 9:15 p.m. Rose’s party had appetizers within about 40 minutes, Hong said, with entrees following about 10 minutes after that. But, that seemed to be unsatisfactory, so Rose’s server asked Hong to mediate. And guess what? You can’t mediate immature.
“I offered to comp the appetizers, but (Rose) was losing her cool, and then I offered to buy them a round of drinks,” Hong said. Rose declined the drinks, and Hong left the table to return to business. “One of my bartenders was walking by and could tell they were upset, and (Rose) threw food at him. … Ruby told my bartender that if she was a bigger man, she would kick my ass, meaning me.”
The bartender also offered drinks to the table, which were again declined, Hong said, and as the bartender left, he saw a french fry hit his shoulder.“He thought maybe it was an accident, so he came back and he asked, ‘Is everything ok?’ And she picked up a handful of french fries and threw them at him. I think she was like … trying to be a bully,” Hong said.
Once the bartender relayed to Hong that french fries were being tossed, Hong asked Rose’s group to leave, which they did soon after.
“Ruby was already kind of pretty over the top upset, kind of laying into me, which — whatever, I’m in the service industry and it’s my job to please customers,” Hong said, adding later, “It was the first time I’ve ever had to ask someone to leave, and it was Ruby Rose.”
RUDE, RUDE, RUDE RUBY ROSE. I don’t care if people offer you drinks to make peace- it’s not all about your sobriety or your ego. They don’t know who you are or the ins and outs of your life. Be gracious, not RUDE.
