Ruby Rose has taken to Facebook to explain her involvement in an incident in a New Orleans restaurant last weekend. Rose, who is touring the United States at the moment, was reportedly kicked out of the restaurant after throwing fries at a waiter.

Rebellion Bar and Urban Kitchen owner Seung Hong told Nola that Rose “cursed out” the bartender. “She was having a tantrum,” said Hong, “She was a horrible person.”

Hong said that he had offered to comp Rose’s party their appetizers, but that she declined and threw food at a bartender. “One of my bartenders was walking by and could tell they were upset, and [Rose] threw food at him. … Ruby told my bartender that if she was a bigger man, she would kick my ass, meaning me.”

In a post, the Orange Is The New Black star has told her side of the story, revealing that she had felt offended by the waiter who she said had made comments about her sobriety after she’d already waited over an hour for her meal.

“We waited 60 minutes for fries and over 90 minutes for food that never actually arrived. When I asked about it, the bartender offered us drinks,” said Rose. “I explained I’m sober, but thank you. He then made some really rude and vulgar comments to the table.”

“When someone makes repeated derogatory jokes about the sobriety I worked so hard to achieve, it’s hard not to react emotionally. So I threw a singular fry at him. Then he came back as we were getting ready to leave and continued making awful comments, so I continued with the fries.”

She then made a partial apology, mainly addressing the French fry itself. “I am deeply regretful to the French fry and I am regretful that I reacted at all. Maybe next time I won’t throw fries, then again, maybe next time that bartender won’t tell someone who is sober to “go call your f**king sponsor!”
