Vince Neil ‘No Longer Welcome’ at the Palms in Las Vegas
With Motley Crue’s recent Hard Rock residency and the upcoming official opening of his ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ strip club, Vince Neil seems to be a hot commodity in Vegas these days. However, there is one place where the Crue vocalist is no longer welcome. The Palms hotel and casino in Las Vegas recently took to Twitter to spar back and forth with Neil, resulting in the Palms publicly announcing that Neil is “no longer welcome” at their establishment.
It all started yesterday (April 2) when Neil advised his 165,000 followers on Twitter to avoid the Little Buddha restaurant, situated within the Palms casino resort, at all costs. Neil tweeted:
I love Vegas, but DO NOT GO TO LITTLE BUDDHA @palms IN VEGAS!! OMG RUDEST STAFF EVER!! Don't go!!

Obviously not subscribing to the notion that that any publicity is good publicity, the Palms subsequently responded on their own Twitter account, basically saying that Neil was abusive to their staff. When sewn together their myriad of short responses read like this:
“Mr. Neil has recently made negative comments about Palms on Twitter, however, he fails to mention his own actions. As a result of Mr. Neil's inappropriate behavior, he was asked to leave a restaurant at Palms. Mr. Neil has also since called Palms personnel threatening negative publicity. While we believe this is unfortunate, and would prefer that Mr. Neil put his efforts toward apologizing for his conduct, such threats will have no effect on Palms’ policies or its decision in this matter. We at Palms take customer service very seriously but we also take the well being of our team members just as seriously. We cannot and will not allow our guests, no matter who they are, to mistreat our team members. As a result of his actions, Mr. Neil is no longer welcome at Palms.”
Neil continued to fight fire with fire on his Twitter feed, not giving up the war of words, calling the Palms “liars” and telling his fans to steer clear.
Although the full account of the altercation between Neil and the employee still hasn’t been revealed, we’re left wondering -- with the limited details on this story, are you Team Vince or Team Palms?
