Default Restaurant owner who banned customers in MAGA hats takes back remarks, apologizes

I wish more would realize they are making things worse by harassing people who wear MAGA hats. They are showing their ignorance and lack of maturity and civility.

Quote:
The restaurateur who said earlier this week that he would be refusing to serve anyone wearing MAGA hats has apologized for making the statement without the consent of his staff and partners, and for being “reckless” in the way he had presented his thoughts.

J. Kenji López-Alt, the chef and owner of Wursthall in San Mateo, Calif., shared his latest message on Medium.com on Friday, and apologized for the way he communicated his initial Twitter remarks, in which he said, “It hasn’t happened yet, but if you come to my restaurant wearing a MAGA cap, you aren’t getting served, same as if you come in wearing a swastika, white hood, or any other symbol of intolerance and hate.”

López-Alt also claimed the original tweet, which has since been deleted, was meant to “reject” the anger, hate, and violence he says he associated with the red “Make American Great Again” hats.

“It was aimed at these three elements rather than at a physical object, but I understand that many interpreted my words in a different context, and construed a message of hate directed at them. This was not my intent in any way, and I am sorry for my recklessness.,” López-Alt wrote via Medium.com, in part.

“Unfortunately the way I tried to communicate this ended up only amplifying the anger, and I apologize for that.”

He added that the restaurant would not be following through on his initial statements, in which he said he would be refusing service to those wearing MAGA hats.

“Wursthall will continue, as it always has, to serve all customer regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual preference, gender orientation, disability, or political opinion — so long as they leave hate, anger, and violence outside of the doors of our restaurant.” https://www.foxnews.com/food-drink/r...EbuCnDb_2Ioiio
I wonder if he is genuinely sorry, or if his original policy hurt his business.

Or maybe he heard what Madonna said when she was wearing one of those kitty hats. That was pure hate.

I appears from the well worded explanation that Senior Lopez spent a lot more time and energy rationalizing his outburst instead of being rational in his outburst.

I'm thinking his first statement banning MAGA hats is close to his soul and his explanation of what he meant is related to his wallet. Hopefully. he has learned that social media can, at the same time, make you brave and stupid.

Dude made the "revelation" when he realized how much business he'll lose and the bad publicity he's gonna get.

This is great.
