GOSSIP GIRL stars Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick caused havoc on a night out in New York City on Tuesday (12Jan10) - after their foul-mouthed outbursts allegedly prompted complaints from fellow diners.
The co-stars hit posh Big Apple eaterie East 60th Street with a group of pals and immediately caused a stir - for all the wrong reasons.
According to New York gossip column PageSix, Meester continually cursed loudly as patrons tried to eat in peace, and snapped at one man who asked her to restrict her bad language.
The publication alleges the actress shouted, "F**k you! How dare you tell us to keep it down."
But Westwick, who plays sly rich kid Chuck Bass in the series, took on the role of mediator - and offered the disgruntled diner a hug as a peace offering.
He reportedly said, "Don't worry about my friends. We should all be happy. Let's hug it up, guys," before embracing the complaining reveller.
