Rage Against The Machine star Tom Morello is raging against the staff of a Seattle, Washington restaurant after he and his friends were refused entry after a gig on Friday night (26Sep14). The guitarist was turned away from The 5 Point Cafe after performing with his former Audioslave bandmate Chris Cornell at the 15 Now benefit event nearby, and he was not happy.
Taking to Twitter.com, he urged followers to "spread the word", writing, "Five Point restaurant in Seattle is the worst. Super rude & anti-worker. S**ttiest doorman in the Northwest. P**ck."
His angry tweet prompted a response from the cafe's owner, David Meinert, who took to Facebook and stated, "For the record, Tom Morello, The 5 Point is totally pro worker. Sorry if you had an issue with our staff, but typically our staff is awesome, and when they are not, it's usually a reflection of the customer. Act like a p**ck = get treated like a p**ck.
"Rock stars don't get special treatment at The 5 Point. We couldn't give less of a s**t."
He later added, "Turns out Tom and his crew didn't get let in as the place was at capacity and there was a line. No one was being let in. According to our doorman, who I totally trust, Tom and his crew were all totally rude."

British actor/comedian Russell Brand has come under fire for mocking the star of a U.K. TV advert who died just weeks after the commercial aired. The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star made a series of jokes about Sam Wright, the star of a commercial for Barclays bank, in a video message posted online as part of his The Trews series on YouTube.com.
The advert shows Wright, 75, learning about online banking, and in his clip, Brand suggests he is actually looking at online pornography and "investing in drones to bomb dispossessed people in the Middle East". Brand also mocks his regional accent.
Wright suffered a stroke and died five weeks after the advert first aired in the U.K. and his relatives have now criticised Brand for making jokes in their time of grief.
His son Stephen tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "We loved that video (the banking advert) and dad was so proud of it. We are disgusted by Brand - he's caused so much upset to my family... When I saw Brand's show I felt sick. It was so insensitive. I don't think he knows how much hurt he has caused us."
Brand had yet to comment on the controversy as WENN went to press.
