Australian actress Ruby Rose has spoken out following an incident in New Orleans over the weekend which saw the "Orange Is The New Black" star kicked out of a restaurant after throwing French fries at a bartender.
Rose is currently on the American leg of her DJ tour and reportedly behaved poorly after being told there would be a wait for food.
"She was having like a tantrum. She was awful," Rebellion Bar and Urban Kitchen owner Seung Hong told Nola.com.
Though, the actress, model and DJ has addressed the incident on Facebook calling it a " stating it was the bartender's repeated derogatory comments about Rose's sobriety that caused her to initially throw a singular fry at him.
I explained I'm sober, but thank you. He then made some really rude and vulgar comments to the table.
"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," Rose posted to Facebook.
She continued: "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."

Rose admitted her behaviour was regretful though, didn't appear too remorseful over the fries-hurling part.
"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!" Rose wrote.
It sure sounds like something straight out of Litchfield Penitentiary's cafeteria and while joking about someone's sobriety is pretty low, throwing fries out of anger (and probably hanger, too) is never the answer.
Fans have flooded Rose's post with comments doubting her and asking for further explanation to which Rose has responded.
One fan said, "Cmon Ruby, I have a feeling your [sic] not being completely honest about the incident."
Rose replied, defending herself saying she'd taken out half of the stuff they'd experienced because she refused to give the establishment the publicity.
"Ridiculous they leaked such a bogus story to press with so many blatant lies," Rose wrote.
Bogus or not, we certainly don't condone chip-throwing of any shape or form.Suggest a correction
