Good grief, has there ever been a viral hate crime story that turned out to be true?
Some idiot waiter in Texas scribbled an “Islamophobic” note on a customer’s receipt and posted it on Facebook in order to paint himself as a victim.
Naturally, the totally unbiased, fact-checking journalists ran with the story before, you know, checking the facts.
"We don’t tip terrorist": Texas restaurant bans customer who left racist note to waiter https://t.co/kY30Jhv6lZ
— Washington Post (@washingtonpost) July 20, 2018
Because heaven forbid we fact-check yet another racist-note-written-on-a-restaurant-receipt story.
But it wasn’t just the crack reporters who got suckered in.
The restaurant owners did as well.
Before conducting “an internal investigation,” the restaurant excommunicated the big, fat faux Islamophobe customer from their establishment.
Yup. A lifetime ban.
Then, after issuing this dining fatwa, the restaurant conducted said “internal investigation” and discovered the waiter, not the customer, was the culprit.
[insert totally surprised gasp here]
The COO of Saltgrass Steak House contacted the blackballed customer and invited him (or her) back to “dine on us.”
Now, you can say I’m not being very forgiving. But if I was said customer, I’d tell them to take their free dinner and stick it where the sun don’t shine. I’d let them know that I am issuing a lifetime ban on dining at Saltgrass Steak House.
Said the COO, “Racism of any form is intolerable, and we will always act swiftly should it occur in any of our establishments.”
So swiftly, in fact, that Saltgrass didn’t even bother to check to make sure the fake hate crime was real before acting.
For his part, the big, fat fibbing waiter has admitted that he lied.
But even in his lie, he’s painting himself as a victim.
“I deeply made a huge, big mistake,” he said. “And I’m in the process of getting the help that I need.”
“Getting the help” you need?
Who in the world needs to “get help” to know it’s wrong to lie like a two-bit race hustler in order to smear an innocent person?
The only help this guy needs is to suffer the consequences of his own reckless, self-centered actions.
If I had a dollar for every fake hate crime story that’s come down the pike in the last two years, I’d be living debt-free.
Boy, this kind of stuff really pisses me off.
