At the time, the restaurant owner, Seung Hong, said that the bartender initially thought the actor had thrown a chip at him by accident, and that he then asked her if everything was okay, but “she picked up a handful of French fries and threw them at him”.
“It was the first time I’ve ever had to ask someone to leave, and it was Ruby Rose,” he added.
The Australian actor has since hit back in a Facebook post, saying she “waited 60 minutes for fries and over 90 minutes for food that never actually arrived”.
The 30-year-old actor also accused the bartender of mocking her when she declined his offer of free drinks because she’s “sober”.The Orange Is the New Black star wrote: “My assistant, tour manager and myself arrived at an establishment last night for dinner before my show in New Orleans.
“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. 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.”
