Cheese Factory announced that it suspended a dozen of its employees for mocking and harassing a black customer for wearing a MAGA hat at Dadeland Mall in Kendall, Fla. on Mother’s Day.
I’m 100 percent sure it’s because I’m black and I’m wearing a Make America Great Again hat,
the customer said.
Eugenior Joseph said that the employees came to his table after hearing him uttering the President’s favorite slogan: “Make America Great Again”. Some of them reportedly made “snide comments” while others were laughing. Joseph, who was dining with his mother and girlfriend, felt very “uncomfortable.” He got up and left before calling the police.
The first news outlet to report the incident was the Daily Wire. Shortly after the story was published the Cheesecake Factory tweeted that the workers involved in the incident had been suspended.
MAGA Hat Wearer Claims He Hasn’t Received an Apology
The restaurant added that its guests should never feel unwelcome and pledged to take the incident “very seriously.” The company claims that it had apologized to the MAGA hat wearer “in person.”
On Tuesday, Joseph said that the company hadn’t offered him any type of apology. A Dadeland Mall manager confirmed that the restaurant was taking the issue very seriously. The manager wouldn’t say whether the employees had been indeed suspended.
Joseph and his mother and girlfriend were at the restaurant to celebrate Mother’s Day. He recalls that one of his loved ones told him that a waitress was pointing at his red MAGA hat to other employees behind his back.
Shortly after, other employees joined the waitress. The man felt like the entire staff of the restaurant was “closing in on him.” He overheard one male employee that he wanted to knock the hat off his head.
