Insulting Tweet Gets Diner Booted From Restaurant
Twitter user Allison Hiromi wasn’t impressed with the bartender at the Down House restaurant in Houston. So, while she was still in the establishment, she sent out a Tweet calling him a “twerp” and also used the hashtag #jackoff in her message.
One of the Down House’s managers, who wasn’t working that night, noticed Hiromi’s message on Twitter. The manager called in, asked to speak to Hiromi, and then told her she had to leave the restaurant because of her insult.
Down House owner Chris Cusack backed up the decision to give Hiromi the boot:
“Any business is allowed to set the tone of their establishment,” he told KPRC-TV “If you go to someone’s house and start calling them names, I wouldn’t really expect to stay too much longer after that.”
For her part, Hiromi was devastated by the reaction.
“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,” Hiromi tweeted, after the incident.
