Restaurant Tells Customers To 'Pull Your Pants Up' And 'Take Your Hoodie Down'

Kabuto Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar in Charlotte, North Carolina has made a sign larger that some people are calling racist. People have started taking photos of the sign every day.

The sign reads, "Take your hood down. Pull your pants up. Finish your phone conversation. Marijuana smell not allowed. We will be glad to assist you." Although Kabuto Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar is a chain, each restaurant is owned and operated independently.

Restaurant owner Martin Tanaka said, “It's actually the best response we've ever had. More people think that more places should do it.” Tanaka says that the sign is there to ensure everyone can enjoy their meals.

He stated, “Our regular customers are families, and we count on a lot of small children to come to this restaurant. I believe our society is lacking on respect, and I think we're falling behind on it.” Tanaka added the line about marijuana smell in February after an incident where a customer complained about a marijuana odor.

Tanaka said customers are usually too shy or scared to confront other customers, so he has to do it. Tanaka added, “We have to turn them out because we don't like that in our establishment."
