Aretha Franklin Disrespected At Johnny Rockets Outlet in Canada

Posted in: , ,

72-year-old Aretha Franklin was disrespected by an employee at a Johnny Rockets eatery after performing a sold-out show in Ontario, Canada.

The unfortunate incident unfolded Tuesday at a Johnny Rockets restaurant in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

A worker screamed at Franklin after she sat down to eat a hamburger that she had ordered to go, the singer’s spokesman said.

The worker, who was likely unaware she was dealing with the Queen of Soul, told Franklin she couldn’t eat inside the restaurant because she had ordered takeout, the spokesman said.

He adds that Aretha Franklin had ordered a hamburger to takeaway after performing a sold-out show but when she changed her mind and decided to seat down and eat in the restaurant, the server screamed at her, saying she couldn’t sit down to eat because she had ordered takeout.

In a statement, Franklin said the Johnny Rockets employee was “very rude, unprofessional and nasty.”

A Johnny Rockets spokeswoman said the franchise owner is sorry for the actions of “a new and very young employee.”

She added that the owner has spoken with the employee and has clarified his takeout policies.
