January Jones vs Zach Galifianakis

This is the story, from the Boston Herald:

Zach Galifianakis told Shortlist.com that January Jones summoned him to her table once at an event. “I sit at her table and talk for 10 minutes, and she goes, ‘I think it’s time for you to leave now.’ So I say, ‘January, you are an actress in a show and everybody’s going to forget about you in a few years, so (expletive) be nice,’ and I got up and left.”

The reporting on this story generally implies that January Jones is an uptight bitch, despite the fact that ZG is absolutely famous for being a crude jerk (as demonstrated by his response to her).  I just read a profile of him in Time magazine, where they call him the new Don Rickles - insulting his audience is a big part of his standup comedy act.  During most of the time that the reporter spends with him, he's being deliberating provocative - in restaurants, with fans, etc.  Is it possible that ZG gave JJ a reason to ask him to leave?  Hmmm.  It'd be nice to get the full story before writing off JJ as a snob with no sense of humor.  And why is ZG telling this story anyway?
