James Corden spoke on Monday’s show surrounding his recent temporary ban from a New York restaurant for alleged “abuse” behavior The seemingly ongoing drama The Late Late Show.
After a week of intense scrutiny, speculation, and social media backlash, the punished and timid Corden took the time to explain what happened and why he had an affair with the owner of the famous New York restaurant Balthazar The public spat is rarely said.
In a recent New York Times
, Corden commented on the drama that originally stemmed from restaurateur Keith McNally’s Instagram post, in which he revealed he got the British comedian to ban Balthazar for being an “abusive customer” to the restaurant’s servers. Although McNally later revealed in another post that Corden had apologized to him and that he was no longer banned, he took to Instagram again to respond to Corden’s comment on Times that he had a problem with late night hosts claiming that the whole The play was “silly” and he didn’t “do anything wrong, on any level”.
“Is he kidding? Or is he denying abusing my server? Whatever Corden means, his meaning is clear: he didn’t do it,” Mike Nally wrote, adding that he hopes Corden “will live up to his almighty initials and confess.”
On Monday’s On The Late Show , a remorseful and uncomfortable Corden did confess. He started joking that he turned off his phone last week and missed all news about himself. But with his parents watching from the audience, Corden was mired in controversy.
restaurant,” he began explaining that he had considered a more direct response on his own social media after McNally’s initial Instagram post, but Decided to keep his advice as he felt right in this situation, try to “keep calm and move on” and “never complain, never explain. “
“But as my dad pointed out to me on Saturday, he said, ‘Son, well, you did complain, so you might need to explain,'” He continued. “Look, when you make mistakes, you have to take responsibility.
What follows is Corden’s recollection of the incident and trying to provide context. He said he had a deep love for Balthazar and he went there with his wife Julia Carey, who had breakfast with friends, revealed that his wife had a ‘severe food allergy’ and that the waiter at the restaurant made her order wrong 3 times and brought her something she was allergic to, which made him make “When her meal came to the table for the third time, on the spur of the moment, I made a sarcastic, rude comment about cooking myself,” he said. “It was a comment I deeply regret. “
Corden said the waiter and manager were “lovely” about everything, very apologetic and even brought champagne to the table.
Then he seemed to change tack. “But that’s what it is,” he said defensively. “I didn’t jump out of my seat because I wasn’t yelling. I didn’t call anyone by name or use derogatory language, I kept walking around thinking I didn’t do anything wrong. But the truth is I have. I made a rude comment and it was wrong. This is an unnecessary comment. This is very rude to the waiter.

He added: “I said to my boss that day that if I upset anyone, it was never my intention.
Corden finally promises that the next time he’s in New York, he’ll personally apologize to the Balthazar staff again – if they let him in, so be it.
