Aretha Franklin has some harsh words for a server who showed D-I-S-R-E-S-P-E-C-T by telling the Queen of Soul she wasn't allowed to eat her take-away inside the restaurant.

A spokesman for the singer says the situation unfolded at a Johnny Rockets restaurant on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.

The spokesman said Aretha ordered a hamburger after performing a sold-out show. But he says the server screamed at the Respect singer, saying she couldn't sit down to eat because she had ordered takeout.

Aretha said in a statement that the restaurant worker was "very rude, unprofessional and nasty."

A Johnny Rockets spokeswoman said the franchise owner is sorry for the actions of "a new and very young employee."

She said the owner has spoken with the employee and has clarified his take-away policies.
