Cuba Gooding Jr.

Screaming Match

Continued Outside Bar

8/1/2012 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The bartender who claims she was shoved by Cuba Gooding Jr. BERATED the actor as she threw him out of her establishment Tuesday morning ... telling him, "New Orleans disowns you" ... this according to a witness who took a photo of the altercation.

TMZ obtained a pic showing the brunette female bartender engaging Cuba outside of The Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street ... AFTER he allegedly roughed her up inside the bar.

We broke the story ... the bartender told police she politely asked Cuba to leave after he cussed at people who tried to take his picture ... when he shoved her into a wall.

The person who took the pic tells us ... the bartender was VERY UPSET at the actor ... and followed him outside the bar as he was being thrown out ... shouting, "I don't give a f*ck if you're a celebrity ... you don't push people."

A bar employee (the blonde) called 911 to report the alleged battery to police. Cuba has since been ordered to appear in court over the incident.

A rep for Cuba says the whole thing is one giant misunderstanding.

We called the bar for comment -- so far, no response.

The bartender was not paid off, she did not cuss or scream at gooding. There was no bouncer. There was no racism. Monday night, local bar, difficult customer, asked to leave kindly then abruptly. Bartender outside waiting for officers to show, they come fast on bourbon.

Sounds like the bartender thinks she is a bouncer. Cuba is one of the nicest celebrities I have met in public; even graciously initiating salutary greetings. So, until the whole story comes out, I have to side with Cuba.
