A waiter has blasted Kevin Spacey after he was fired for asking the actor's pals not to smoke in a restaurant.
Peter Turner has accused the American Beauty star of costing him his job at the Clarke Cooke House in Newport, Rhode Island, after friends violated state laws by lighting up during a meal in June (09).
Turner alleges the head waiter instructed him to ask Spacey's party to put out their cigarettes - but the star reportedly took exception to the request, reports RadarOnline.com.
Turner recalls, "I told the maitre d' (they were) smoking, he said to ask them not to smoke. I did politely ask them not to. The second time I made a joke about it - I said, 'You're not allowed to smoke in here unless you're on fire.' The third time... Kevin Spacey basically verbatim said to me, 'You know, you're an aggressive p**ck.' I said to him, 'I'm sorry, I'm just doing my job. Does anybody need anything?' I was told (by Spacey), 'I need you to get the f**k away from my table.'"
The waiter claims his bosses were furious after the incident - and fired him from his position three days later.
Turner insists the lay-off has cost him dearly, adding: "I was banking on making somewhere between $12- and $18,000 (at the restaurant) and that's basically what I'm out because someone thought that they were more privileged than anyone else."
