The band Mumford & Sons got kicked out of Clermont Lounge on Tuesday night. The band went to the iconic dive bar/strip club on karaoke night after a performance at Centennial Olympic Park, and its members were allegedly ejected because of a confrontation that started with an argument about the club's photography policy (which is: do not take pictures) and ended with a member being physically detained by security.
"They were being rude to security and they were taking pictures and you're not allowed to take pictures in here," an employee told Paste. "Apparently there were some words said and someone cursed out the security staff." The Clermont Lounge itself posted to Facebook, "We told you it would be a hell of a week with our 48th celebration! Mumford & Sons tossed from the Clermont Lounge! To our knowledge no fight took place. Again, we all had a blast and hope to see M&S again!" Check out a shaky video below.
