According to the Daily Wire, the Cheesecake Factory may be the next restaurant chain to join Starbucks in the “diversity training” line of shame. Or at least, that would be the case if their victim of verbal assault was not…a dreaded TRUMP SUPPORTER. Seeing as how it was a black man wearing a Make America Great Again cap, though, we’re sure the mainstream media will not cover this story. There will be no marches outside the Cheesecake Factory. Life will go on without pause because as everyone knows, the only thing worse than a white Trump supporter is a black Trump supporter. Just ask Kanye West.
But in case you’re one of those rare Americans who think that Trump supporters of all colors should be able to support the President of the United States without being harassed by restaurant employees, you may be interested in what happened down in a Miami Cheesecake Factory on Mother’s Day. Because from the sound of it, it was truly nasty.
From the Daily Wire:
The Sunday incident allegedly began at the Cheesecake Factory located inside Dadeland Mall when 22-year-old Eugenior Joseph was seated while wearing his MAGA hat.
According to multiple witnesses and Joseph’s own account, a woman who worked at the restaurant walked up to him and started pointing at his hat, signaling for the other employees to come over.
“Her finger was literally on top of his head, we were all looking at her like ‘what is happening?'” one witness told The Daily Wire. “She was pointing at him, calling her other coworkers, telling them to look at this guy wearing a Make America Great Again hat.”
At that point, approximately a dozen or so employees approached the table and began making comments about the hat, with some saying they wanted to punch Joseph in the face. Witnesses also allege that some of the employees also referred to him as a “n**ger” in their conversations among each other.
The harassment didn’t end there. One employee threatened to “knock his head in so hard his hat’s going to come off.” Another stood by giving Joseph dirty looks and clenching his fists. This one, Joseph told the Daily Wire, appeared ready to fight.
“He got behind me and another coworker came by and they were staring at each other and he fist-bumped him and then he started looking at me, balling his fists, smacking his fists, trying to scare me,” he said.
If this had happened while Joseph was wearing a Black Lives Matter hat, this incident would have been at the top of every newscast in the country and on the front page of every paper on the East Coast.
But since it was just a lowly conservative, the best we get is this anemic statement from the Cheesecake Factory public relations official: “No guest should ever feel unwelcomed in one of our restaurants and we are taking this matter very seriously. Upon learning of this incident, we immediately apologized to the guests in person. We are conducting an investigation and will take the appropriate corrective action.”
You could start by not hiring #Resistance-minded lunatics to work at your restaurant…
