We present the latest edition of A Moveable Tweet, where we take a look at the most intriguing tweets in the restaurant industry.
It all started with a tweet from Vince Neil, the lead singer of Mötley Crüe who calls Vegas home. “I love Vegas, but DO NOT GO TO LITTLE BUDDHA @palms IN VEGAS!! OMG RUDEST STAFF EVER!! Don't go!!” he wrote on Twitter March 28.
Last night, the action escalated with a flurry of Tweets like, “Do [sic] to recent events, including distrust and dishonesty at the executive level. I will never again step foot @palms property,” “It's unfortunate because I have great friends @palms and I have a lot of respect for the Maloof family!!” and “If your [sic] a Spring Breaker I don't recommend you go there! They don't care about you!!” regarding George Maloof, the minority owner of the Palms.
His rants got him banned from the Palms.
The Palms responded with its own tweets:
“Mr. Neil has recently made negative comments about Palms on Twitter, however, he fails to mention his own actions. As a result of Mr. Neil’s inappropriate behavior, he was asked to leave a restaurant at Palms.
“Mr. Neil has also since called Palms personnel threatening negative publicity. While we believe this is unfortunate, and we would prefer that Mr. Neil put his efforts toward apologizing for his conduct, such threats will have no effect on Palms’ policies or its decision in this matter.
“We at Palms take customer service very seriously, but we also take the well being of our team members just as seriously. We cannot and will not allow our guests, no matter who they are, to mistreat our team members. As a result of his actions, Mr. Neil is no longer welcome at Palms.”
Neil recently opened a strip club called Vince Neil’s Girls, Girls, Girls and his band Mötley Crüe recently had a short residency in February at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel. This summer, the Crüe tours with KISS, and fortunately does not make a stop at the Palms.
