Laura Ramadei, a server and bartender at Lucky Strike came out with a fierce open letter this week, after a customer, Brain Lederman, allegedly groped her. Ramadei posted an the letter on Facebook, and it's since been picked up by Jezebel and gone viral. In it she writes: "When I asked you and your companion if you'd be eating, or needing anything else from me, you put your hand - ever so gently - ON MY ASS and asked if you could take me 'to go.'" She then goes on to reveal his full name, his skimpy tip, and his place of work (as a hedge-fund manager).

When contacted by the Post, Lederman denies he touched Ramadei and says he was kidding when he said, "I would like you to go with nothing on it." Shooting himself in the foot (again) he tells the Post: "I've grabbed plenty of girls' asses in my life...but I've never grabbed hers." Not doing himself any favors, he then proceeds to call her a "f-king c-nt" and threaten to "make sure she doesn't get another job in New York City."
