Premier League soccer star Ashley Cole learned a valuable lesson at a Missouri bar -- possibly drunk American chicks don't give a crap about English soccer stars ... and TMZ has video of the epic ass-chewing she gave him.
It all went down when Cole's team, Chelsea FC, was in St. Louis for a match against Manchester City back in May. Ashley and a few teammates hit up a bar called Hair of the Dog. Witnesses tell us there was a small dispute with the bartender over how much the players tipped, but they left without incident.
But outside the bar things got heated when a woman offered the footballers a ride to their hotel -- and Cole refused to go ... thereby igniting the most vicious U.S.-British exchange since 1776.
Highlights from the angry American:
-- "My people don't give two s**ts about you."
-- "They (Cole and co.) don't even know how to tip!"
-- "I hope this stupid ass gets robbed, gets beat, gets raped right here on the motherf**king sidewalk!"
She had much more to say -- and to their credit Cole and his mates kept relatively calm ... but you have to see the rant to do it justice.
Oh, insult to injury ... Chelsea lost to Man City, 4-3.
