The 56-year-old rocker spoke about the incident with TMZ on Tuesday as he was seen at LAX airport with his wife Brittany Furlan .
In the video, the 32-year-old Furlan said: "It was actually really stupid. We literally go in there and we sit down and I have a hat on and [ Tommy ] has a hat on and the waitress, or the host or whatever, goes, 'Yeah, you have to take your hat off, sir.' And I was, like, 'What about my hat?' And she's, like 'Your hat's fine, but he has to take his off,'" she told TMZ , adding that Lee was wearing a "regular" baseball cap. "So [ Tommy ] was, like, 'Oh, what the fuck' and took it off and put it on his lap, and then this guy comes up to our table — we have no problem, the hat's off everything's cool — and is, like, 'Excuse me, I heard you use profanity.'”
Lee then explained that the guy said: "'You're going to have to leave,'" to which Tommy responded: "You know what? Fuck you. We're leaving."
"We don't want to be in some stuffy-ass place where they're, like, 'Take your hat off,'" Furlan added.
On Tuesday, Lee expressed his dissatisfaction directly at Emeril Lagasse , the restaurant owner.
"Hey @Emeril, I just was at your restaurant in New Orleans and was aggressively asked to leave because I was upset about removing my hat. I removed it and they still came up to the table and gave me a hard time. Wtf dude????" he tweeted.
Lee made headlines earlier in the month when he re-posted a Reddit rant that condemned President Donald Trump and the Republicans.
The MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer further tweeted that he was taking "a Trump ," adding the poop emoji.
