A restaurant has left an amazing response to a Yelp review that claimed it had too many gay customers.
Hell’s Kitchen, a favorite for brunch in Minneapolis, went out blazing after a Yelp reviewer left only four words and one star.
It read: ‘Too many gay people’.
The staff at Hell’s Kitchen decided to make an example of the homophobic reviewer with a fantastic retort back.
They said: ‘We’re writing in response to a review you posted on Yelp a few minutes ago. It simply said “too many gay people.”
‘We ask that you not return to Hell’s Kitchen again. All of us who work here, whether straight or gay, view Hell’s Kitchen as our home; we open our doors each morning and do our best to make every person kind enough to dine with us feel as if it is their home, too.
‘We do our best to make every guest feel welcome, we do our best to create an environment that gives them a chance to enjoy the company of their friends, we do our best to create an environment that is blind to any form of prejudice and we do our best to create an environment that is safe.
‘These aren’t “business goals”….they’re just naturally in the DNA of every one of the 166 members of our Hell’s Kitchen family.
‘While you’re certainly free to post any comment you want about us, we’re equally free to say you cannot enter our home again.
‘Cyn, Pat and the staff at Hell’s Kitchen’
But it didn’t end there.
According to the restaurant, the man decided to take down his review after a change of heart.
Posting on Facebook, Hell’s Kitchen staff said: ‘We’ve just learned from a member of the media that this young man and his family have taken down his post and he understands how hurtful his words were.
‘Here at Hell’s Kitchen, some of us have said things we later wished we had not, and some of us have made mistakes that have hurt others … we’re very big believers in redemption here and always respect people who acknowledge that their words and actions have hurt others.
‘We appreciate the steps this young man took today and would welcome an opportunity to have him meet us so that he can learn a bit more about why we felt strongly about his words.’
