According to reports, Hugo’s Tacos is closing until further notice.
The chain which mainly says they have Latino employees were called racial slurs and had things thrown on them by customers who refused to wear masks.
Come on, people, it’s not that hard.
It’s the kindest thing you could do right now for someone else.
The harassment — ranging from racial slurs to food and objects being thrown at employees — “has taken a toll” on staff, CEO and part-owner Bill Kohne told BuzzFeed News. Kohne said he wants to give his employees a break as the company works toward solutions to better protect them. He said many of his employees are Latino and that they have heard racial slurs from diners who are indignant about wearing a mask when told to.
In an Instagram post, they said, “**Update: We created a fundraiser for our employees - link is in our bio @hugostacos! Both our Hugo’s Tacos locations are now closed temporarily. We look forward to reopening again soon when it’s safe! #NoMaskNoTaco"
On the bright side, a fundraiser is in place for employees.
