“Wetherspoons, Moon Under Water Leicester Square, London, Table 74.

“If you send me something nice let me know and I’ll give you a kiss xxxx.”

However, staff at the pub failed to see the funny side when over 100 orders came through in less than half an hour.

In a follow-up post, the 22-year-old revealed: “Guys they’re gonna kick us out, we’ve got so much he said he’s refunding the orders and not giving it to us.

“We just got kicked out of Wetherspoons, they had over 100 orders in 30 minutes.”

The morning after, Baledge uploaded another video apologising for his actions after receiving lots of negative comments.

He said: “I just want to fully apologise for my video yesterday.

“I only ever want to make people happy with my videos and I genuinely did not think about it being a burden on the staff because I am stupid and was ignorant to my following.

“This is all really new to me and even though the number of you that follow me is mad (and I am so [grateful]) I genuinely did not think that many people would buy things.

“Despite this, I also filmed the staff member which was not okay AND I was mega defensive on here which is also not OK.”

He continued: “I’m just genuinely a childish idiot at times and whilst I always try to use my platform to spread happiness and make people laugh I messed up here.

“I understand some people might think this is an overreaction but it genuinely makes me upset that I have come across as disrespectful when I never want to be that.

“The amount of threatening comments/messages I’ve got have been really overwhelming, but I understand why people are upset. 

“Love you all lots and sorry if I made you think I’m a t***.”
