Tom Morello rages against Seattle cafe for not treating him like a VIP

That’s the trouble with communists, they only think the rules apply to the little people.

Over the weekend Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine got his elitist shorts in a bunch because he wasn’t immediately seated in a Seattle restaurant that was already filled to capacity. He took to Twitter to share the epic “don’t you know who I am?” moment with all his fans.

Five Point restaurant in Seattle is the WORST. Super rude & anti-worker. Shittiest doorman in the Northwest. Prick. Spread the word.

Spoiled musician experiences severe butt hurt over not being given special treatment, throws tantrum on Twitter. Spread the word.

@tmorello Wondering – A: Do people usually blindly do whatever you say? & B: Why not tell the doorman he's a prick, instead of telling us?

Quote of the day: "Rock stars don't get special treatment at The 5 Point. We couldn't give less of a s**t."

The owner of the restaurant seems to be hard at work trying to implement the things Morello only talks about and took poor Tom to school.

@tmorello The 5 Point is totally pro worker & we pay more and have more benefits than any other small restaurant anywhere

@tmorello higher starting pay, health insurance, retirement, paid vacation, sick days, and profit sharing.

— David Meinert (@davidmeinert) September 27, 2014

@tmorello we are or were fans of you & your work. Our staff are very cool & when they aren't it's typically a reflection of the customer

— David Meinert (@davidmeinert) September 27, 2014

@tmorello BTW I'm the owner & have supported & worked on paid sick days, higher minimum wage & city sponsored retirement for all workers

@tmorello Attacking small business goes against your gimmick, asshole. Stop pretending you're a rock star.

So Rage Against The Machine has become the machine they raged against:

lol, @tmorello uses his celebrity to get special treatment, then makes political accusations when he doesn’t get it

@tmorello turns out to be just another douche rock star wanting special treatment. via @po_st #shocker #antidoorman

@tmorello Perhaps Yelp would be a better outlet for your hurt feelings then?

@stabulousness: @tmorello Perhaps Yelp would be a better outlet for your hurt feelings then?” On it

@gechsor15 @tmorello "Rebellious social activist" didn't get rock star treatment, trashes small business on Twitter. #whenrockstarsyelp

— m. pinero (@stabulousness) September 27, 2014

@gechsor15 "Local business I've never been inside of is THE WORST. They're anti-worker! Spread the word." Yes, my attitude is the issue here

Willing to forgive the Seattle Evil (Egg) Empire 5 Points Cafe doorman powertrip if good guy owner D Meinert fully embraces #15Now min wage

— Tom Morello (@tmorello) September 29, 2014

So big of him. He’s willing to forgive the restaurant he trashed to 384k Twitter followers … but only if they meet his conditions.


Pancake Gate update: Luv&respect the workers.Glad to sit down w/owner next time in Sea, happy about his commitment to pay raise for workers
