James Corden is known for making people laugh on late night television. But Corden’s dark side has also seen the light of day more than once, because there are more than a handful of celebrities who can’t stand him. He’s reportedly been warned to stay away from British series Hollyoaks, according to The Guardian, for some of the things he’s said, and has insulted an entire English town of Sidcup by calling it the “Armpit of England,” as detailed by To express. As if that wasn’t enough, British chart-topping Lily Allen admitted in 2017 that during an interview in 2008 she felt super uncomfortable when Corden hit on her. She tweeted: “No I wasn’t horny for James Cordon either. He hit on me in front of a studio audience; if I turned it off, I would have been labeled cold, self-hyped, or snobbish.”
Still, Corden is making headlines again with his behavior, but this time it has nothing to do with soap opera leggings, insulting British cities, or inappropriate behavior towards pop stars. Instead, Corden gets a lot of excitement for how he behaves in restaurants.
James Corden is banned from eating at this New York restaurant
According to the Daily Mail, New York restaurant owner Keith McNally stopped James Corden from ever entering his Balthazar restaurant just 86 years earlier. McNally called Corden a bully and a “tiny dimwit of a man” for the disrespect he showed his restaurant staff. Corden reportedly didn’t think it was funny when his wife ordered an egg yolk omelette and found some egg whites. He also (allegedly) asked for free drinks after finding a piece of hair in his meal. Not only that, Corden even threatened to write a nasty Yelp review if his demands weren’t met, per the Los Angeles Times.
Of course, Twitter had a lot to say about the matter online. Some tweeted quite cheekily: “Just spit here but what if we convinced Elon that Mars needs its own talk show? (And the [Corden] should the first guest be on it?).” Another Twitter user wrote, “I hope James Corden has minor inconveniences for the rest of his life. Nothing egregious, but just enough to permanently ruin his day — like socks that won’t stay up and a nose that’s constantly running talk show on your side of the pond.” It’s clearly going to be more than a few jokes, a perfect need a prepared omelet and a laugh to fix Corden’s reputation.
