The Cheesecake Factory has quickly moved to deal with employees at one of their stores who viciously bullied a black man who was enjoying a quiet Mother’s Day dinner with his girlfriend’s family.
But the quiet day was ruined when a number of workers at the Miami-area location took offense at the red “Make America Great Again” ballcap that the customer was wearing because we just can’t have black people showing support for the legitimately elected POTUS. The lynch mob quickly moved against 22-year-old Eugene Joseph and threatened and taunted him right in the dining room, with at least one staffer calling him a “n*gger” with another making menacing gestures that indicated that he wanted to physically harm the diner.
We reported on this incident right here at DT in the article “Cheesecake Factory Employees Bully Black Diner Wearing MAGA Hat” and it wasn’t long before it was picked up by major media sources.

The intimidation and disruption likely also spoiled the Mother’s Day experience for other customers who were also indirectly the recipients of the lack of respect by the restaurant staff. Now two of those who harassed Mr. Joseph have been fired and the corporation has issued an apology to him via an official press release.
All guests should always feel welcome in our restaurants. The recent incident in one of our Miami restaurants fell short of our standards, and we apologize to the guest and his family. Two individuals are no longer employed by the company, and we are continuing to investigate. pic.twitter.com/gbrh1Ok8iC

Cheesecake Factory workers have been ousted from the chain after an incident in which a customer says he was harassed by roughly a dozen employees for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
Conservative news website The Daily Wire reports that a 22-year-old named Eugenior Joseph was targeted by Cheesecake Factory employees for wearing a MAGA hat. According to The Daily Wire, roughly a dozen workers at a Miami, Florida location approached Joseph, who was dining with his girlfriend’s family, and began making comments about the hat.
“All the employees started standing there, saying things out loud, like, ‘I’m going to knock his head in so hard his hat’s going to come off,” a witness told The Daily Wire.
Joseph told the publication: “He got behind me and another coworker came by and they were staring at each other and he fist bumped him and then he started looking at me, balling his fists, smacking his fists, trying to scare me.”
Why only two? Every one of the employees who participated in this disgusting act of public humiliation over one man’s political views should be out on their asses.
While it is a start it isn’t enough and the very least that the Cheesecake Factory could do would be to make restitution to Mr. Joseph and his family by offering them a significant amount of free meals.
Perhaps they should also follow the example that Starbucks and close their locations nationally for a mandatory “bias” training session but it just doesn’t work that way when a conservative is the victim of harassment.
