Jess Glynne hit the headlines earlier this week after she claimed that Mayfair restaurant Sexy Fish "discriminated" against her - and fans online have had a lot of light-hearted fun with the singer's post.
Writing on Instagram on Tuesday, the 30-year-old hitmaker claimed that she and her friend were turned away from the upmarket sushi joint on Berkeley Square for wearing hoodies, saying: "I think the attitude of your staff needs to change as that was pure discrimination. Thanks and bye."
Fans soon pointed out that the restaurant has a strict dress code and Glynne has since edited the caption, removing the word "discrimination" and replacing it with "RUDE."
But that hasn't stopped the funny (and good-natured) memes rolling in. Here are some of the best ones doing the rounds...

After Glynne's initial claims, a spokesperson for Sexy Fish told Standard Online: “Sexy Fish supports individuality and style but respectfully ask all our guests to acknowledge our dress code which is published on our website.
"We are huge fans of Jess, and her music and feel sorry that she feels that she has been treated insensitively.”
