HuffPo: According to CBS affiliate WCSC-TV, Michael Brown and 24 of his family and friends were at Wild Wing Cafe celebrating his cousin’s final day in Charleston, S.C., last month when the group was suddenly told to leave.
The reason? The shift manager allegedly told Brown that a white customer felt “threatened” by his party. “[That] totally alarmed all of us because we’re sitting there peaceably for two hours,” Brown told the news outlet.
WCSC-TV reports that a representative at the chain reached out to Brown to apologize and offer a free meal for the group.
Waiting two hours for a table is outrageous in it’s own right. Waiting two hours for a table and then being told to straight up leave? It’s a miracle nobody was killed. This mystery white customer is a total dick, and should move back to Louisianna. South Carolina is too far north for this kind of racism.
Pretty intimidating group shot though. Like if they didn’t want to appear threatening in this group shot I would’ve hid all the flexing jacked dudes in the back. And with that many umbrellas its reasonable to assume 1/3 of the group are fucking psychos. Also, every single one of the chicks in that photo made me piss my pants, and I’m at least 4 states away from South Carolina. I’m not saying I would’ve cried about it to a shift manager or anything, but I’m also not saying I wouldn’t have flat out cried.
100% chance the “free meal” was set for a pre-determined time, when the restaurant is completely empty, so as to not upset the white customers.
Lastly, you think it was Michael Brown’s blood related cousin? Or just like, friend cousin. I feel like the ‘cousin’ word gets tossed around real lightly nowadays and I just can’t know for sure.
