Black man in MAGA hat harassed-threatened by Florida Cheesecake Factory staffers

Liberals are just so tolerant!

Ryan Saavedra reports for The Daily Wire that on Mother’s Day, May 13, 2018, employees at a Cheesecake Factory in Miami, Florida, verbally attacked and made threatening gestures toward a black man who was dining with his girlfriend’s family simply because he was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, according to multiple witnesses interviewed by The Daily Wire.

Eugenior Joseph

According to multiple witnesses and 22-year-old Eugenior Joseph‘s own account, a woman who worked at the restaurant walked up to him and started pointing at his hat, signaling for the other employees to come over. About a dozen or so employees approached the table and began making comments about the hat, with some saying they wanted to punch Joseph in the face. Witnesses said some of the employees also referred to Joseph as a “n**ger” in their conversations among each other.

One witness told The Daily Wire:

“Her finger was literally on top of his head, we were all looking at her like ‘what is happening?’ She was pointing at him, calling her other coworkers, telling them to look at this guy wearing a Make America Great Again hat. So then 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.’

One of the employees gave Joseph intimidating looks, clenching his fists and making hand gestures that appeared to indicate that he was ready to engage in a fistfight. Employees at the restaurant continued to mock and intimidate Joseph after he got up to use the restroom.

Joseph told The Daily Wire that one employee “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. I got up and went to the restroom, my girlfriend followed me, and as we were walking back, a group of [the employees] came out from the back and they just started clapping and yelling, and just screaming things at me.”

Another witness verified Joseph’s account, saying that the employees in the kitchen were loudly booing Joseph as he walked by. The event was so traumatic and threatening that an elderly female diner had to take medication to calm herself down.

Multiple witnesses said that as Joseph and his companions exited the restaurant the manager followed them out and told them that some of the employees admitted to their actions and that one of the employees had been sent home. By now, police had arrived, documented the incident in the police report, but did not file any charges.

The Daily Wire contacted the Cheesecake Factory and spoke to a manager who refused to answer any questions and instead took down reporter Ryan Saavedra’s contact information. When Saavedra asked the manager whether or not he could confirm the incident had taken place in the restaurant, the manager’s tone became slightly hostile as he reiterated: “I’m going to have someone get in touch with you.”

The Daily Wire viewed multiple video clips and photos that validate the claims made by the witness:

  • One of the photos showed the man described by the witnesses as being the one who made the threatening hand gestures, making the fist bump with another employee.
  • A video showed a young girl crying at the table, afraid of the hostile environment created by The Cheesecake Factory employees.
  • Another video showed Joseph in a state of disbelief over what had just unfolded as other witnesses were visibly angry over the way he had been treated.

Joseph says he has not heard from anyone at The Cheesecake Factory about how he was treated. Joseph says that he wears the MAGA hat because he thinks Trump “is a really good president,” and that he is disappointed that a black man can’t wear a hat to support the president without being attacked.

In a statement issued the next day, Alethea Rowe, Senior Director of Public Relations at The Cheesecake Factory, wrote:

No guest should ever feel unwelcomed in one of our restaurants and we are taking this matter very seriously. Upon learning of this incident, we immediately apologized to the guests in person. We are conducting an investigation and will take the appropriate corrective action.

How come the recent Philadelphia Starbucks incident (of two black men being arrested because they refused to leave) is all over the media, but the MSM gave scant, if at all, attention to the abuse received by Eugenior Joseph, also a black man?

  1. What ever happened to taking your hat off at the table? Guess I’m just old. never mind


  2. Whatever happened to the left calling for TOLERANCE? EH? There is no tolerance from them unless we fall into their game plan of destroying Christianity, destroying morals, destroying America’s liberties and freedoms, and hugging up to the new world order a la George Soros and his ilk.

    I have two black T-shirts with bold white lettering that I wear pretty frequently. One of them says “I AM A DEPLORABLE” and the other includes an image of a basket in the center with the words “PROUD MEMBER OF THE BASKET OF DEPLORABLES”.

    At 58, I stand only 5’8″, and yet not one person has ever said anything negative to me about the T-shirts or even given me a nasty look. (However, a good number of people have given me high-fives and commented positively on the T-shirts.)

    I have worn these shirts at festivals and street celebrations, where thousands of people are gathered, and still not one single negative reaction, ever! And then I come across many stories like this one regarding Eugenior Joseph, and I am genuinely mystified.

    At this point, although I consider myself to be a pretty friendly guy, I’m guessing that I must just naturally give off some vibe that liberals (communists) read as: Start crap about my T-shirt and you will have grabbed a tiger by the tail. Be careful. Because I don’t know of any way to ‘splain it otherwise.

    I wish I were there sometime when some libtard started s#!t with a fellow Deplorable, like Eugenior Joseph. I’ve got some pent-up righteous anger that could use a release valve.

  5. Every one of those spoiled brat employees should be fired & arrested ASAP. Forming a vicious threatening mob against customers is insane. Where was the stupid manager?! I feel bad for our young #MAGA friend. He just got a rude wake-up call as to how the world really works. Trump should give him a shout out via twitter.

O/T but speaking of twitter: @HenryMakow, a great twitterer for NWO+JWO news, has been confined to #TWITMO (“temporarily suspended”) for the first time ever since 2012, for 12-hours by @jack twitter for a tweet re the percentage of homos who are also pedophiles. He included a source link (UK article). Henry says he’s moving to Gab. Details here:

  7. Two neighbors posted supportive Trump yard signs during the election extravaganza …&they were vandalized daily (signs, their cars, yards… assumedly by those “tolerant” Demorats).One of them moved away to Texas. Another neighbor (not in this mess, but still, native Californians—Hispanics yet— who’d supported Trump but not posted anything political) moved to Alabama a few months ago. They wanted to get their kids out of Mexifornia. I fine this amusing: (and so I diverge)—

    I had a jokster Great-Uncle in my formative years who used to advise me to “keep my eyes open next Wednesday.” When I’d ask why next Wednesday? He’d say—“So you can SEE!” He’d also remind us kids over and over again that “Wherever you go….you take yourself with you.” It took me a while to figure out what this meant when I was young….but I eventually understood that he meant—if you make a geographic move…esp. to “escape” something….but then you STILL behave the same and take your same values with you….esp. those that you want to “escape,” you will never find the “change” that you think you are looking for. I see this so much in our illegal population where I teach—-they supposedly come here to get a free and better education for their kids—but then they do not require their kids to pariticpate, to apply themselves, adopt “American” ideala—in FACT—mostly the opposite: they idealize the culture of Mexico to their kids so much so that they turn their hearts against America—-so many of their kids fail most subjects year after year—-they don’t follow their homework, grades, the plans made to help their kids during parent/teacher conferences ….The kids graffiti my room with the Mexican flag and “Brown Power” and any and everyway they can, they try to get the Mexican flag incorporporated into every art project. They shout out during the morning pledge that they “pledge allegience to MEXICO!!!!” But, I watch them drive up in their brand-new SUV’s everyday to drop off a half dozen kids who line up for their free AMERICAN breakfasts & lunches…..and it turns my stomach remembering the slights all day long against AMERICANS and American tax payers…the ones who GIVE Them the free education…free meals (even over the summer) free after school programs, and much free medical screening as well as other benefits directly from our schools. I have a Mexican native neighbor who has lived in this country for over 40 years and STILL does NOT speak a lick of English. My point is…..if you come to America in search of the American life—then WHY BRING YOUR MEXICAN values with you that were responsible in part for you “escaping” from Mexico?

    • Your grandpa said it best- actually I think the late Irwin Corey said something similar….”where ever you go, there you are,” or ” if we don’t change direction soon we will end up where we are going”. At any rate, this seems to be a ubiquitous problem with third worlders, whether Mexico or India, or Africa. They hate the “shitholes” they come from but are too stupid to see it was their culture that made them “shitholes”, and insist on holding on to them. Think I mentioned before here that an Indian acquaintance just shook his head about India one time and told me, ” Indian is so f—ed up…but then proceeds to vote liberal.

  9. Has anyone seen any videos of the attack inside the store? Were the employees “of color”? My guess would be they were; had they been white, the coverage and response would likely have been swifter and more stringent, IMHO. Sad… POC seem to react more violently toward their own whom they see as traitors to their “activism – causes”.

  15. Just gotta love that liberal “tolerance.”

    I hope Mr. Joseph sues, as his rights were clearly violated.

    Back when I lived in in-town Atlanta, the Cheesecake Factory was a place I frequented, as it was a great place to take a date or a group of friends.

    The only problem was the cheesecake was decidedly average – so much so I usually skipped it.

    Now I have another reason to skip it – and the restaurant, too.

    How long before the management falls all over themselves apologizing to Mr. Joseph?

    I’m guessing it will be before the end of the week.

  16. I hate “chain” restaurants. The food is lousy (I’m sure it’s GMO/GE), the help is usually atrocious, the ambience is noisy and cheap. It started with that junk called McDonalds. They’ve made America into an homogenized blob rather than a vibrant, truly ‘diverse’ country where you could see differences between neighborhoods, and cities, and between the states. Now it’s a series of endless strip malls.
    Call me an elitist, but when it comes to food, I don’t like chains. I’d rather stay home.

  17. SO, WHEN is the owner of the cheese-factory going to fly in and personally apologize to this man and his family??? What was done to them is beyond awful! It’s not only mean and stupid, but it’s suppression of freedom of speech. Just goes to show you that the MSM is a sock puppet for the NWO and totally agenda driven. Nice to see the cops didn’t even FILE HARRASSMENT charges. Not surprised by that one either.
