This past Friday San Francisco’s finest were asked to leave a restaurant cause they’re guns made the employees and possibly patrons uncomfortable. So the police left. But the owners added fuel to the fire. They supported the employees. What a mistake that was.
Hilda and Jesse’s Operations/Co-Owner Rachel Sillcocks responded to the expulsion of the uniformed officers, writing, “The fact that they were in uniform with multiple weapons on them made our staff uncomfortable, and potentially other guests.” That’s when Social media for once took over and just ripped into this restaurant. The last straw for the owners was the one star rating. They went to Instagram and begged for forgiveness.
“We made a mistake and apologize for the unfortunate incident on Friday when we asked members of the San Francisco Police Department to leave our restaurant,” co-owners Rachel Sillcocks and Kristina Liedags Compton wrote in statement posted to Instagram Sunday afternoon. “We are grateful to all members of the force who work hard to keep us safe, especially during these challenging times.”
"𝗪𝗲 𝗱𝗼 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗼𝘄 𝗴𝘂𝗻𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘂𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘁."
I just spoke exclusively to one owner of Hilda & Jesse.
