James Corden apologized but now calls restaurant ban ‘silly’ and denies bad behavior
James Corden apologized for calling two restaurants “silly” after a backlash over his Twitter tirade against fast food and restaurants on Monday.
One tweet read: “What a silly, self-centred world we live in. You go to the fancy restaurant, get a table upstairs, get a table on the balcony with a view – but you will never be served in the staff room.”
Another read: “And what about those of us who like to eat at nice & simple restaurants with good service? Do we not deserve a little table in the corner, where we can enjoy a meal without being disrupted by a loud, self-centred man (or woman) telling us what we shouldn’t do.”

On Friday, Corden apologized for what he called a light-hearted comment about what he called “dens and crowds” at restaurants.
“I should have said that I felt bad for the employees who work in the staff room and that the food wasn’t as good as it could be. My intention was not to offend anyone and I am sorry,” Corden said in a statement posted to his website.

He later went on with his explanation: “I was wrong and I apologize for using the phrase ‘dens and crowds,’” he wrote. “And I’m sorry that I got so defensive about someone who commented on the topic, calling me out on my attitude.”
Corden’s Monday tweet is another in a string of Twitter outbursts that have left many people upset.
