What do you think of the Hat and those who wear it?

California chef lifts ban on restaurant customers in 'Make America Great Again' hats

A California chef who made headlines after announcing a ban at his restaurant on customers wearing “Make America Great Again” hats is clarifying his intent.

a chef and partner at Wursthall, a restaurant in Calif., published a piece on Medium Friday explaining why he changed his mind about refusing to serve patrons if they were wearing the polarizing hats.

“The way I tried to communicate this ended up only amplifying the anger, and I apologize for that,” he wrote in the piece, adding that it was “disrespectful and reckless,” to make a public statement without thinking about how it would affect his employees.

“My goal at Wursthall was for it to be a restaurant where all employees and staff are treated with respect and trust, and by making that public statement without your consent, I failed at that goal. I will work hard to earn back that trust,” wrote _______.

“Like many people, I’m scared and confused by the anger, hatred, and violence that I’m seeing in our country right now. Scared for my family and friends, for my community, and for the most vulnerable people among us,” he wrote. “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.”

The controversy began when, in a now-deleted tweet, López-Alt wrote: “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.” The post received hundreds of retweets and thousands of likes, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. It also received a good deal of backlash

Everyone has an opinion one way or the other about these hats.... will they actually express their thoughts?

Everyone knows Trump is a racist. He was cited twice by the DOJ for having a policy forbidding rental of his apartments to minorities. The wall between the U.S. and Mexico may sound reasonable as most countries protect their border, but Trump is such a liar. First he told us the Mexican government would pay for the wall. Four billion American dollars a year is sent to Mexico via Mexican residents to their families, etc. Why would they want a wall?

800,000 innocent government workers out of work because he shuts the government down to force his project on the American people and we have to pay for that? 800,000 people who have families hurt. "Make America Greta Again" Yeah right

That hat represents racism not because the statement represented by the initials is inflammatory, It is because the man behind the hat is a known bigot.
