James Corden admits wrongdoing in Balthazar debacle

James Corden apologizes for the restaurant debacle

Comedian James Corden has been in the headlines recently for all sorts of reasons unrelated to his comedic act. Just after insisting that he had no part in any wrongdoing during his visit to a French restaurant in New York City named Balthazar, he recently took an opportunity to recant his story. 

In a statement he made to his viewers last week on his show, “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” the late-night comedian described his behavior as “rude and “wrong.” During the show, Corden said, “When you make a mistake, you’ve got to take responsibility.” After the admission, he went into further detail about his well-documented outburst. 

He attended the restaurant with his wife, Julia, whose meal initially came out incorrectly. “As her meal came to the wrong table the third time, in the heat of the moment, I made a sarcastic, rude comment about cooking it myself,” he said. “It is a comment I deeply regret,” he admitted before saying that he has “such respect” for the staff at the high-end eatery. Even though Corden admitted to wrongdoing on his end, he still came off as emotional because he was placed in such a position to make a public apology for the experience. 

During the apology, in which the television host was clearly shaken up while delivering, he said that he “didn’t shout or scream” or “call anyone names or use derogatory language.” Still, he wrapped up his statements about the situation by saying, “I made a rude comment, and it was wrong. It was an unnecessary comment. It was ungracious to the server.” Considering the backlash he’s received for his behavior at Balthazar; it’s fair to assume that the comedian will be mindful of his comments at restaurants moving forward.
