Desi Vega apologizes to Black couple who had tip auto added to bill at restaurant
LINK

quote:

A Black couple had a 20% tip automatically added to their bill Saturday night at Desi Vega's Seafood and Prime Steaks in an instance of racial profiling that has prompted a public apology from the restaurant's owner and the suspension of two employees.


quote:

Vega issued a statement late Sunday, saying the auto tip was improper, apologizing to the couple and suspending the manager and waiter involved.

"The fact that my staff tried to cover the situation up by lying about it makes it much worse," Vega said.

Bending the knee always works. Ask Drew

ETA: talking about this public flagellation. You CANNOT appease the woke crowd. Once they have the scent any sign of weakness, justified or no, will only drive the mob into a greater frenzy.


This will attract the Gravies of the world looking to make a scene.

They can kiss their tips goodbye now. They’ll be flooded with SJWs and the Woke crowd, order extravagant meals, eat the whole thing, then complain and want it comped and still not leave a tip.

How is it bending at the knee when the employees were caught in a lie? This is a justifiable apology.

God what a horrible statement. So if its true, why the suspension?

Also, is "impressive couple" the same as "well- spoken"?

If this incident really occurred, which appears to be the case, this isn’t bending the knee.

The 2 employees in question seriously fricked up and should be fired, and the public apology is warranted.

This board said it was fake and the couple made it all up? Good for them for getting the restaurant in on the rouse

I'd be pissed about an auto 20% tip on a two-person party no matter what color I was.

Yeah for once this wasn’t a Jussie act. Seems legitimate. The restaurant looks bad either way. Poor attempt at damage control here.

They should just pay their employees more and charge 20% more.

Problem solved.

Because this is a public flagellation to show how very sorry they are.

This is Brees putting that rapists name on his helmet.

All this is is blood in the water and the sharks have the scent.
It should have been handled privately.
