Restaurant Won't Serve Customers Wearing MAGA Hats, 'Same As Swastikas'
Kenji Lopez-Alt of Wursthall Restaurant has vowed to fight 'intolerance and hate'
A restaurant in San Francisco is refusing to serve customers wearing MAGA hats because they are the "same as if you come in wearing a swastika" according to the owner.
Kenji Lopez-Alt of Wursthall Restaurant has vowed to fight 'intolerance and hate' by being intolerant of anyone who supports President Donald Trump.
Lopez-Alt Tweeted that a customer coming into the restaurant wearing a MAGA hat would be "same as if you come in wearing a swastika, white hood, or any other symbol of intolerance and hate."
The tweet has since been deleted.
Unsurprisingly, the restaurant owners tweet has received mixed reactions.
Some people say refusing to get to serve customers based on items of clothing is contradictory to what he claims he stands for.
In a report from the San Fransisco Chronical: San Mateo resident Jamie Hwang, 42, said she was dining at the restaurant for the second time since it opened.
“I was here when it first opened,” she said.
“I follow Kenji on social media, so I knew it was a place I had to come.”
Hwang was unsure on what to make of López-Alt’s policy on MAGA hats.
“I see where he’s coming from, but I don’t think you should just keep people out because of a hat,” Hwang said.
“I get that idea, that maybe that hat could mean the person wearing it is just looking for a fight, but just cutting off dialogue, not giving a chance to get to know someone — I just don’t know if that’s something I would do.”
