James Corden brands Pierce Brosnan 'f***ing rude' after he was 'pushed' by star

In a rather ironic turn of events, a resurfaced clip of James Corden branding Pierce Brosnan 'f***ing rude' has been doing the rounds on social media.
Unless you've been living off-grid for the past week, you will have heard of the drama between the Gavin and Stacey star and a NY restaurant named Balthazar.
Earlier this month, the owner of the eatery, Keith McNally, banned Corden and called him a 'tiny cretin of a man' over his alleged treatment of staff members.
Keith later said the talk show host called him and 'apologised profusely' and he has since revoked the ban, but people are still sharing stories about Corden online.
One of those is a throwback to an episode of The Late Late Show in which the 44-year-old actor invited Khloe Kardashian to the show.
During the 'Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts' truth or dare segment, Corden was asked by the reality TV star to name a celebrity who had been rude to him at a party.
Though he was hesitant to answer the question, the alternative option was to drink a glass of bird saliva and so he decided to reveal all.
"There was someone," he said, before admitting that they might want to book them on the show in the near future.
Eventually he spills the beans, claiming it was James Bond star Pierce Brosnan.
Corden said: "I don’t think he's a rude man, he just happened to be [to me]. I went to see U2 and I was there with my friend Louis and his wife, and my wife, and Pierce Brosnan was with some friends.
"They left halfway through the gig to go off, and we left the space [for them]. And then they had been gone quite a long time and Bono was like right there on this sort of big runway in the middle of the show – it was at The Forum.
"So me and my wife moved into this area, and literally, I’ve never felt anything like it, this arm went on here and just pushed me out the way.
"And I looked at him and he didn't even glance at me, he just moved back into his area."
Khloe chimed in to suggest, "Maybe he was drunk," to which Corden said, "Maybe he's just a bit f***ing rude."
Speaking of which, the comedian finally admitted he was 'rude' to staff members at Balthazar in a lengthy explanation on The Late Late Show.
"Because I didn't shout, or scream - I didn't get up out of my seat, I didn't call anyone names or use derogatory language - I've been walking around thinking I hadn't done anything wrong," he said.
"But the truth is I have. I made a rude comment, and it was wrong. It was an unnecessary comment. It was ungracious to the server."
Although he claimed it was a 'heat of the moment' reaction after his wife was allegedly served food she's allergic to, workers have since said he'd ordered an omelette that wasn't on the menu - then kicked off when it wasn't to his liking.
"I'm sorry but that is bulls**t," one server, who declined to be named, told the Daily Mail. "He wanted an omelette that had only egg yolks. Not the egg-white omelette, just egg yolks.
"Why then would you even bother ordering an omelette if you're allergic to eggs?"
Staff claimed the egg allergy was just an excuse, with barman George adding: "We deal with that kind of behaviour from people all the time. But he... he was very, very rude."
