Let us start with a tweet from one Allison Hiromi:
Left @DownHouseHTX in tears after GM called up & asked the bartender to hand me the phone. He proceeded to curse a me & ask me to leave. Wow
So … a customer got kicked out of a bar in Houston and cried. So what?
Well, it isn’t every day that bawling gets one into the local newspaper:
It may be the first-ever case of its kind: A diner was kicked out of a restaurant not for something she did, but apparently for something she said online ….
…. One of the restaurant’s managers, who wasn’t working that night, read the “twerp” comment on Twitter. He called the bar and asked to speak to the customer. Over the phone, he asked her to leave.
“Any business is allowed to set the tone of their establishment,” Cusack said. “If you go to someone’s house and start calling them names, I wouldn’t really expect to stay too much longer after that.”
The kicked-out customer is Allison Hiromi. On her Twitter page, she described herself as opinionated, extroverted and feisty.
After being ask to leave the restaurant, she tweeted: “Left Down House in tears after the GM called up and asked the bartender to hand me the phone. He proceeded to curse at me and ask me to leave.”
A lot of people on Twitter are talking about what happened.
One person said they’ll never go to Down House again, and another customer called it a disappointment.
A third person wrote, “I think Down House owes Allison Hiromi a big apology. Welcome to a PR nightmare.”
An editorial note, then, to Ms. Hiromi: Shut the hell up you pathetic moron.
