Man Kicked Out Of Wetherspoon After Asking His 880,000 TikTok Followers To Buy Him Drinks

Man Kicked Out Of Wetherspoon After Asking His 880,000 TikTok Followers To Buy Him Drinks

Staff were quickly overwhelmed with orders

A man who asked his 880,000 TikTok followers to buy him drinks while at a Wetherspoon pub was kicked out after it was flooded with orders.

Max Baledge posted on social media to ask his followers to buy him a drink through the app, not realising how many would actually place an order, leaving staff overwhelmed.

He is also reported to have shared the call out with his 25,000 Twitter followers and 39,000 Instagram followers.

Posting on Twitter, he said: "Never done this lol but recording a TikTok for bants.

"Wetherspoons, Moon Under Water Leicester Square, London, Table 74.


"If you send me something nice let me know and I'll give you a kiss xxxx."

But the pub was hit with more than 100 orders within half an hour and stressed out staff struggled to cope, resulting in them refunding the orders and asking Max to leave.

In since-deleted follow-up posts he wrote: "Guys they're gonna kick us out we've got so much he said he's refunding the orders and not giving it [to] us."

He then added: "We just got kicked out of Wetherspoons they had over 100 orders in 30 minutes."

However, some of Max's followers were left less than impressed with his behaviour with one branding him 'disrespectful' towards staff.

Posting an apology following the backlash, Max wrote: "I just want to fully apologise for my video yesterday.

"I only ever want to make people happy with my videos and I genuinely did not think about it being a burden on the staff because I am stupid and was ignorant to my following.

"This is all really new to me and even though the number of you that follow me is mad (and I am so [grateful]) I genuinely did not think that many people would buy things.

"Despite this I also filmed the staff member which was not okay AND I was mega defensive on here which is also not OK.

"I'm just genuinely a childish idiot at times and whilst I always try to use my platform to spread happiness and make people laugh I messed up here.

"I understand some people might think this is an overreaction but it genuinely makes me upset that I have come across as disrespectful when I never want to be that.

"The amount of threatening comments/messages I've got have been really overwhelming, but I understand why people are upset.

"Love you all lots and sorry if I made you think I'm a t***."

A spokesperson for the pub chain told the Sun: "We support the actions of our staff 100 percent in asking Mr Balegde to leave.

"Our staff work hard to ensure that all customers are looked after and on this occasion Mr Balegde's childish antics made it difficult for them to do so."
