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.

The students art work, supplies and iPads have not been returned.

    Who is this guy? He prepares food, that's it. The media pumps him up like he can feed thousands with two loafs of bread. Just another over rated individual. I would like to buy him for what he's worth, and sell him for what he thinks he's worth.

    Yeah, I'd eat something prepared by someone that looks like he hasn't bathed in two weeks. Yup. Great credibility there, pal.

    Former restaurant? He'd better watch it, or he will have more former restaurants!
    What a jerk!
