John Travolta Humiliated: He's Denied Reservations At Kentucky Fried Chicken
"When it comes to Kentucky Fried Chicken, the Colonel makes accommodations for no one. That includes actor John Travolta, who reportedly tried to make a reservation at one of the fast food chain`s locations in West Suss(e)x, England.
The Daily Mail reports that a representative for Travolta tried to book a table for the actor but a staff member turned down the request, saying he would have to wait in line like everybody else." CBS News
On a couple of occasions I`ve tried to make reservations at a fancy restaurant, only to be told that there were no tables available. I wondered if they were telling the truth, but my ego remained intact because better folks than me have been denied reservations.
But if I walked into a Kentucky Fried Chicken, and I was denied accommodations (for whatever reason) I would be devastated. A wino. reeking of filth, can order whatever he wants as KFC as long as he has a few bucks in his pocket.
A celeb like John Travolta is used to receiving VIP treatment, if he needs to use the John at a gas station the red carpet is rolled out for him.
Imagine Travolta`s shock and humiliation when he learned that he was denied reservations at KFC. Travolta hasn`t been this crushed since he read the reviews for his godawful movie Battlefield Earth.
The KFC franchise in England regrets dissing Travolta. A spokesperson for the fast food chain said: In hindsight , of course, we would have reserved a table for him. It`s not every day you get a Hollywood star eating in your restaurant.
