A restaurant in South Carolina forgot that it was 2013…clearly.
Last month, Michael Brown and 24 of his family members were visiting Wild Wing Cafe when they were suddenly told to leave.
Because a white woman nearby felt threatened by their large party. And no, that’s not a joke.
According to the Huffington Post:
When one of Brown’s companions started filming the exchange, the shift manager is said to have told the group to leave.
“[That] totally alarmed all of us because we’re sitting there peaceably for two hours,” Brown told the news outlet.
Brown said that his group had waited “patiently” for two hours to get a seat at the restaurant. And after the unbelievable dismissal from the establishment, he took to Facebook to express his frustration.
That’s when a representative at the chain reached out to his family to apologize and offer a free meal.
“We had a conversation,” Debra Stokes, Wild Wing Cafe’s chief marketing officer, told WCSC-TV. “It was a really good conversation… they just didn’t receive the experience that they have come to know and love.”
Interesting. We wonder if they will have to pick up their free meal from the back door.
