Pseudo-celebrity Thomas Ravenel went on another one of his social media tirades in the wee hours of Tuesday morning — this time lashing out at cocktail bar Proof. He posted on the Upper King establishment’s Facebook wall:
The thinnest skinned wimp I've ever encountered runs Proof. After 13 years he's still pouting from the smallest of slights. Craig is such a little girl. Cry baby cry. Tonight this man child had a temper tantrum not unlike a two year old. One day I'm going to teach this boy a lesson. Ah, but I won't. Zero competition.
Ravenel references bar owner Craig Nelson, and many of Nelson’s friends and colleagues have already come to his defense. Charleston’s version of Donald Trump usually ends up deleting these comments once he rouses in the morning, but don’t expect an apology. If Proof is anything like Ravenel’s reality show Southern Charm, he’ll rage against it for a while and then will try to be back in a few months.
