Known as the “Red Menace” to staffers at the Spotted Pig, Mario Batali is accused of allegedly groping a woman in the third-floor after-hours party area known as “the rape room.” The incident, which took place in 2008, was caught on video as he drunkenly kissed and groped the woman who appeared to have passed out, report the New York Times. Another woman, Trish Nelson, came forward saying, “He tried to touch my breasts and told me they were beautiful.” Batali admitted yesterday, “Though I don’t remember these specific accounts, there is no question I have behaved terribly. There are no excuses. I take full responsibility and am deeply sorry for any pain, humiliation or discomfort I have caused.”
