Trouble-prone rocker Vince Neil was 86’d from the Palms on Monday via Twitter.
In what might be a social media first in Las Vegas, the Palms took the rare step of announcing on Twitter late Monday that the Motley Crue frontman was no longer welcome.
The Palms’ action came a couple hours after Neil launched a Twitter tirade against the Palms against the property, vowing he would “never again set foot” inside the hotel-casino.
Neil indicated the blowup was due to “recent events” and said his anger was being directed at the “executive level.” That apparently meant the Palms new management because he qualified his remarks by saying, “it’s unfortunate because I have great friends @palms and I have a lot of respect for the Maloof family.”
Neil’s outburst came five days after he tweeted about being treated rudely at a Palms restaurant.
The Palms, in its Twitter response, suggested Neil left out some details.
The statement said, “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 we 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.“
A year ago this week Neil found himself in hot water after an incident at the Hilton that involved his ex-girlfriend/entertainment reporter Alicia Jacobs.
Police said an agitated Neil poked Jacobs in the arm and directed obscenities at her and her friends at a comedy club.
Neil, 50, was charged with domestic violence and disorderly conduct.
