Students say Charlie Trotter kicked them out of his former restaurant
Celebrity Chef Charlie Trotter has been accused of jeopardizing an art show by students from the after school matters program.
When WGN-TV reporter Randi Belisomo tried talking to Trotter Thursday night, he asked if he “should do an Alec Baldwin” on her. He had no real response.
Earlier, students at that after school program say they were allowed to use the space in Trotter’s former restaurant for an art exhibit.
But they claim he was rude to them while they were setting up.
The after school matters program issued a statement saying, it regrets the disappointment and confusion the situation caused, and officials are working to get back the artwork.
