Comedian James Corden recently sat down with The New York Times to discuss his new mini-series Mammals along with his plans to leave TheLate Late Show next year.

Of course, the interview was booked before the infamous Balthazar ban.

Here's a refresher:

After Corden apologized "profusely," the ban by restauranteur Keith McNally was lifted.

During the Timesinterview, Corden addressed the frenzy surrounding his publicized behavior, claiming it all to be "silly."

"I haven't done anything wrong, on any level. So why would I ever cancel [the interview]?"
"I was there. I get it."
"I feel so Zen about the whole thing. Because I think it's so silly."
"I just think it's beneath all of us. It's beneath you. It's certainly beneath your publication."

According to the Times, during the interview - which took place at a restaurant - a woman within earshot coincidently complained about the eggs she ordered.

Corden commented:

"Can you imagine now, if we just blasted her on Twitter? Would that be fair?"
"That is my point. It's insane."

Of course, Corden was referring to the incident at Balthazar in which Corden yelled at a server because "a bit of egg white" was mixed into his wife's egg yolk omelette.

Twitter wasn't nearly as dismissive of the incident.

Corden shared that he wan't really aware of the media frenzy surrounding the restaurant ban.

"I haven't really read anything."
"It's strange. It's strange when you were there."
"I think I'm probably going to have to talk about it on Monday's show."
"My feeling, often, is never explain, never complain."
"But I'll probably have to talk about it."

Let's hope he not only addresses the incident but also realizes the effect that harsh words can have on others.
