Aretha Franklin is mad as hell at Johnny Rockets, some shitty, overpriced fast food-ish diner chain where she ordered some post-concert food last week. You see, all she wanted to do is sit down in a booth at the Niagra Falls location and chow down on some burgers and fries. The problem is, she ordered her food for take-out, not eat-in.
Franklin ordered a burger to go from the popular chain after her sold out show Tuesday … then sat down to eat … and that’s when she claims the server went off, saying her conduct violated the take-out policy.
Franklin said the worker was “very rude, unprofessional and nasty.”
Johnny Rockets is contrite … apologizing for the actions of the new employee … adding the server has been spoken to and educated on its takeout policies.
Who the fuck tells Aretha Franklin that she can’t eat a burger any damn place she chooses? If you don’t care that she’s Aretha Franklin, fair enough (but shame on you), but she’s old as shit. Who’s rude to senior citizens? Let Aretha live (and eat)!
