According to Blabbermouth.net, Mtley Cre singer Vince Neil has been banned from the Palms in Las Vegas after he made disparaging remarks about the hotel-casino via Twitter, claiming that he would "never again set foot" inside the property.
In a series of tweets yesterday (Monday, April 2), Neil - who lives in Las Vegas - explained that his anger was caused by "recent events, including distrust and dishonesty at the executive level," adding that "it's unfortunate because I have great friends @palms and I have a lot of respect for the Maloof family."
Five days earlier, on March 28, Neil advised his Twitter followers to stay away from the Little Budha restaurant inside the Palms casino resort, writing, "I love Vegas, but DO NOT GO TO LITTLE BUDDHA @palms IN VEGAS!! OMG RUDEST STAFF EVER!! Don't go!!"
In its Twitter response, Palms insisted that Neil's "inappropriate behavior" led to him being "asked to leave" the Little Budha, adding that "we cannot and will not allow our guests, no matter who they are, to mistreat our team members."
The statement said in full, "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."
After reading Palms' statement, Neil remained defiant, writing, "@palms can say what they want. It's all lie's. F--k the executives!! I'll name names later!!" He added, "@palms looking for any excuse for people not going there because they don't treat people with respect!!"
