Russell Crowe Vs Mr Miyagi
A recent piece of news has circulated on the internet recently about 'Gladiator' alum Russell Crowe. No, he did'nt get into a scrape, just a bit of embarrassment.
Apparently, he and his girlfriend, actress Britney Theriot went to a Japanese fusion restaurant in Melbourne for a meal after a game of tennis. And just imagine... they were denied service because the tennis gear they had on didn't meet up with the restaurant's 'casual but smart' dress code. The couple did the next best thing, they went somewhere else.
Mr Miyagi's owner Kristian Klein defended the staff member's (who did not recognise Crowe) action. He said, “We treat everyone the same. It doesn’t matter who you are or if you are Russell Crowe. We’ve got a dress code that we push across every level. We are consistent with it and I don’t feel like it’s unreasonable. ”
If that's the case, can someone please explain why Mr Miyagi then sent this post to Crowe on Instagram later:
"Dear Russell, during your last visit it seems we got off on the wrong foot. After much reflection on what occurred, we have made a permanent change to our dress code. We would love to see you again in the future, you’re always welcome at Mr. Miyagi.”
I've never heard anything so silly in my life.
First, you said the restaurant treats EVERYONE the SAME. And you stood by that. Now you send Russell Crowe an apology, if one can call it that. It was either based on public opinion on their behaviour or they are simply a bunch of hypocrites. You don't get to send Russell Crowe that message after that defensive statement.
Russell Crowe, just don't go back to that place, there are other restaurants.
