I wasn't respected at restaurant: Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin has some harsh words for a server who showed D-I-S-R-E-S-P-E-C-T by telling the Queen of Soul she wasn't allowed to eat her takeout inside the restaurant.

A spokesman for Franklin says the situation unfolded Tuesday at a Johnny Rockets restaurant on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.

The spokesman says Franklin ordered a hamburger after performing a sold-out show.

But he says the server screamed at Franklin, saying she couldn't sit down to eat because she had ordered takeout.

Franklin says in a statement that the restaurant worker was ``very rude, unprofessional and nasty.''

A Johnny Rockets spokeswoman says the franchise owner is sorry for the actions of ``a new and very young employee.''

She says the owner has spoken with the employee and has clarified his takeout policies.
