Now he is speaking out and providing another angle of the situation from the restaurant’s cameras.
In a post on the establishment’s official Instagram, he said, “When the first incidents occurred the guests were politely asked to stop and have respect for themselves and other customers. The guests at issue were at three (3) tables. As this video shows you will see guests spoken to politely and literally begged to stop standing on our furniture and twerking. There are other videos that show much more of the behavior in the following videos, but we do not want to embarrass the guests sitting at those tables.”
He continued to show that before the viral video he politely handled the situation, and also thought of the customers' well-being, and also any other unwanted scenarios that could have resulted from the situation.
He continued to state, “We hope these additional videos will give you a bit more insight into what led to the guests being admonished but we understand we cannot please everyone. As usual, 97% of our guests yesterday were fantastic, this is an indictment on the very few who don’t respect our restaurant.”

Y’all still patronize racist companies like Chick-fil-A, H&M, Gucci, etc., but you draw the line at a Black man saying he doesn’t want women twerking on his tables? Hmm .

The True Kitchen owner is more worried about twerking in his restaurant than a bunch of people in his packed restaurant without masks during a pandemic. pic.twitter.com/en3l21fXTC

I think y’all are missing the bigger picture here……. whether you agree with the owners point or not, you don’t speak to your customers that way, especially not cursing at them.
You’d be foolish to spend another dollar at True Kitchen.
