Racists are awful but you really have to be a special kind of awful racist to be pissed about spanish being used in a goddamn taco joint.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (FOX 11) – A customer — confused about a special at a taco restaurant — went on a racially-charged tirade after learning he couldn’t get his $2 taco on Monday. The man scared employees and yelled several threats to them before taking off.
Several signs greet visitors to Palapas Tacos on Lincoln Avenue in Anaheim, advertising daily specials in both English and Spanish. But Monday, a customer misunderstood a banner advertising “Fish Tacos for $1.99 All Day,” but he didn’t understand the header: “Especial de Viernes,” indicating the restaurant’s Friday special.
“I hear all this screaming. So I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’” said Juan Del Rio, owner of Palapas Tacos. “This customer, I found out, he was not understanding the special being Friday instead of Monday.” He says the man became belligerent, not only with employees but with other customers as well.
Security cameras caught the tirade on tape. “That’s bull____!” yelled the unidentified man. “It says it in Mexican. We’re not in Mexico. We’re in America! Above the border. The red, the line. I’m an American!
