Bar Employee Fired For Refusing Service To A Certain Demographic Of Customers

A North Dakota man has posted on Facebook about an unpleasant experience he and his friends recently had at a restaurant. The group were denied drinks at a Grand Forks restaurant after a female server asked the group which presidential candidate they voted for in November.

The Facebook post was made by Lucas Mondry, from Minto, N.D., who was at the Brick and Barley restaurant in Grand Forks.

"We were asked who we voted for, and because of our response we were denied our drinks," Mondry wrote. "I understand people can have their opinions, but I felt this was extremely unprofessional. I respect everyone's right as a citizen to vote for whomever they choose and I expect the same. Extremely disappointed on how I was treated."

Sarah Horak, an owner of the restaurant, made an apology in a comment on the FB post.

"Coming in should be fun and relaxing, which was definitely not what occurred this evening. When we were made aware of what happened, I immediately drove downtown and fired the employee. That was completely unacceptable behavior and I am so sorry," Horak noted.

Horak also said it was "one of the shortest firing conversations of my career."

According to Horak, Mondry's group was refused service when they said they supported Donald Trump. It seems the group complained to staff at the bar, who apologized and called Horak. "We're a small business. We can't afford for all these people to believe that's who we are as individuals or that we would allow that in our business."

"It was an employee who went rogue and made her own choices, and unfortunately that has consequences," Horak remarked.

Of interest, this Cinco de Mayo incident at the Brick and Barley occurred on the one-year anniversary of President Trump’s head-scratchingly insensitive tweet about taco bowls. “Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!” Trump tweeted.

In the interview, Horak emphasized that she doesn’t care about the political preferences of her customers.

“I care that you wanted to enjoy your time,” she explained.
