Family Claims Ruby Tuesday Denied Them Table over Trump Shirt, Post Pictures

Share

Did a North Carolina Ruby Tuesday deny service to a family because one of them was wearing a pro-Trump T-shirt? One Twitter user is causing a major stir by saying they did.

A husband and wife from Florida, tweeting under the handles @RealFrankFromFL and @RealTashaFromFL, described what they said they endured at the Roanoke Rapids outlet of the chain restaurant.

“I guess you allow your employees to refuse service to trump supporters,” Tasha wrote in a Saturday tweet.

“My husband, @RealFrankFromFL was wearing his trump shirt, the hostess never greeted us and than minutes later saying it was a 20 minute wait. We leave and see multiple clean and dirty tables.”

She also posted shots she said were proof that there should have been space for them to be seated:

Her husband, meanwhile, went live with his experience at the Ruby Tuesday.

Do you think this family was discriminated against?

He also posted a record of his correspondence with the restaurant chain, which was until very recently a one-sided affair:

In another tweet, he noted that “we did not go into the restaurant as social justice warriors. People keep asking why we didn’t get it on film or that we are lying. We just drove 10 hours and wanted a quick bite before our hotel. My wife took pictures of all the empty tables as we were walking out.”

He also claimed that staff gave his family “nasty looks” because of his shirt, seating others while they stood there.

Giving that @RealFrankFromFL’s story was going viral, it didn’t take long for the restaurant to contact him:

Now, was this bad service because one of them was wearing Trump apparel? We don’t have any direct evidence of this; photos aren’t videos and even a video likely wouldn’t provide context.

The restaurant could have been short-staffed; the family could have been mistaken or misleading when it came to others who came in later being seated before them. Simply put, we don’t know enough to pass judgment on this one yet.

However, it’s something that Ruby Tuesday certainly should be providing answers for. However, requests for comment by Conservative Tribune have so far gone unanswered.

Trust me, there’s no crispy chicken mac and cheese delicious enough that Trump fans won’t be turning down if it turns out this family was turned away simply because one of them chose to wear a shirt supportive of the president.
