No publicity is bad publicity!
An Italian restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico fell under fire for punning about the Black Lives Matter movement in an advertisement on its marquee. After the sign was removed, however, customers flocked to support the restaurant.
“Since Wednesday, July 13, we have been inundated with positive, supportive phone calls from the community as well as overwhelmed with business, not only from our ‘regulars,’ but from so many new customers who came from Albuquerque, surrounding cities, and even neighboring states simply to support us,” the restaurant wrote on its Facebook page, adding that some of its crew were moved to tears because of the outpouring of support.
“Many nowadays would contend that society has changed for the worse, but our experience this week has proven the opposite,” the post continued. “We have encountered so many quality people of character; salt of the earth and the bedrock of America. Awesome.”
Fuck yeah! 🙂
