A group of friends went to a sports bar, Huck Finn’s Cafe, in the French Quarter of New Orleans last week, where they were met with upfront and indirect racism. After eating the group of African American friends received their receipt from their waiter with “N—– 100% dislike” printed on it. The story became viral when a photo of the receipt was uploaded to Facebook by one of the victim’s mother stating the need for an advocate and a lawyer ASAP.
Following the hateful incident the restaurant issued a statement apologizing to the customers:
The unfortunate actions of this one employee do not mirror the mission of Huck Finn’s Cafe’s firm non-discrimination policy, and we are extremely apologetic for any inconvenience this may have caused. We acknowledge that the anger and disappointment being expressed is legitimate and has serious merit. We want everyone to know that we agree.
The Restaurant has since fired the 23-year-old waiter, Dakota Crochet, and has issued a public statement to assure restaurant patrons that:
The unfortunate actions of this one employee do not mirror the mission of Huck Finn’s Cafe’s firm non-discrimination policy, and we are extremely apologetic for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Although the statement is assumably heartfelt, would you still eat here knowing that this event happened?
