NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario — 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 said the situation unfolded Tuesday at a Johnny Rockets restaurant on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.

The spokesman said that Franklin ordered a hamburger after performing a sold-out show. But he said the server screamed at Franklin, saying she couldn’t sit down to eat because she ordered takeout.

Franklin said in a statement that the worker was “very rude, unprofessional and nasty.”

A Johnny Rockets spokeswoman said the franchise owner is sorry for the actions of “a new and very young employee.”

The spokeswoman said the owner has spoken with the employee and has clarified his takeout policies.
