Hispanic-Owned BBQ Hosting “White Appreciation Day” Receives Bomb Threats
There may be some legal difficulty with advertising such a discount. But naturally, the left is once again on a crazy tear, trying to shut this place down because the owner was trying to say he appreciate everyone.
Via Daily Caller:
A Hispanic-owned barbecue restaurant in Milliken, Colorado is hosting a “White Appreciation Day” next month, which upset many people on the Internet.
Edgar Antillon and Miguel Jimenez, the owners of Rubbin’ Buttz BBQ, will offer a 10 percent discount exclusively for white people on June 11. While the event was originally planned as a joke, the owners have since officially scheduled “White Appreciation Day” and put up a sign to advertise. The sign for the event explains that it is being held, “Because all Americans should be celebrated!”
“We have a whole month for Black History Month. We have a whole month for Hispanic heritage month, so we figured the least we could do was offer one day to appreciate white Americans,” Antillon, whose parents are from Mexico, told KUSA-TV.
As a result of the move, there has been backlash against Rubbin’ Buttz BBQ. Individuals have taken to social media to share their opinions on the business decision, causing the restaurant to be a trending topic on Twitter. Despite never eating at Rubbin’ Buttz BBQ, people have been leaving several negative reviews on Yelp. In a Facebook post, Rubbin’ Buttz BBQ claims it has even been the target of a bomb threat. More
