Aretha Franklin

P-I-S-S-E-D

At Johnny Rockets

7/27/2014 6:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0727-aretha-franklin-tmz-01Aretha Franklin had a malt-down at a Johnny Rockets in Niagara Falls ... after one of it servers screamed at her for trying to eat her takeout order inside the restaurant.
 
Franklin ordered a burger to go from the popular chain after her sold out show Tuesday ... then sat down to eat ... and that's when she claims the server went off, saying her conduct violated the take-out policy.

Franklin said the worker was "very rude, unprofessional and nasty."

Johnny Rockets is contrite ... apologizing for the actions of the new employee ... adding the server has been spoken to and educated on its takeout policies.

Chain of fools.

That's not uncommon even the restaurant I bartend at does that. Now it's usually only black people that do it so they don't have to tip on Togo

not everyone working fast food I-S-S-M-A-R-T maybe the person needed to be paid a wage that he/she can raise a family of 4 on while serving hamburgers and french fries. Maybe if that fast food worker made $30 an hour they would understand the take out policy better? yeah maybe...

Im assuming the server didnt really scream at her but a women of arethas celebrity has probably never had to deal with people saying no and always getting away with what she wants. To be rich and famous!
