A South Carolina restaurant patron found a note reading “fag” in his bag, after dining at Yesterdays Restaurant & Tavern in Columbia, as it was reported by the victim’s friend via Facebook. “While eating at Yesterday’s Restaurant & Tavern celebrating my mom’s birthday, one of the kitchen workers placed a note in our friend’s bag that said ‘fag,”’they wrote, adding that they called out the manager immediately, but everything what he could say to excuse himself was ‘It’s a joke’. The restaurant reacted on the Facebook statement with an apology for the behavior of theur staff member, which read: “This is a serious matter and we’re treating it as such. While the employee in question was dismissed on the spot this is by no means the end of our commitment to the local LBGTQ community. We have always suported [sic] this community but will step up our efforts and involve our employees. Hopefully we can use this as learning opportunity not just for the employee in question but all of our staff”.
