MIAMI The Cheesecake Factory says it has suspended a group of employees accused of harassing a customer who wore a "Make America Great Again" hat to one of the company's Miami restaurants.
According to WFOR-TV, Eugene Joseph, 22, said employees at the chain's Dadeland Mall location taunted and threatened him on Mother's Day when they saw his hat bearing President Donald Trump's campaign slogan.
Joseph, who was at the restaurant with his girlfriend and her family, told WFOR that staffers made insulting comments and tried to intimidate him, saying they'd hit him and knock off his cap....

"...no longer employed / are now suspended..."
Wow. Just wow. Very happy they’ve been fired. But it is incredible what they did.
Permanent, super-secret, double suspension.
suspended not fired!
Miami Dade almost went for TRUMP....
Manager on duty?????? That person should have taken care of it at that moment.
I wonder if the FREEPER who called for Cheesecake to be driven out of business over this incident will apologize?
Sadly, I think they’ll have their nose in the air with a big F -you
Just firing those two employees doesn’t seem good enough considering others were involved. And, the employees should have been fired immediately.
The “Apology” was pathetic..they actually blamed these pricks actions on a scheduling change LOL..yeah a scheduling change caused these two a-holes to call this man a “Stupid N”
Hear is the clarification.......
We were very disappointed to learn that two staff members made disparaging remarks about
Mr. Josephs hat that made him and his family feel unwelcome. As a result, as of Tuesday
those two individuals are no longer employed with the company ......
Suspended, until this blows over.
We’re expected to believe they’re taking it seriously when they mischaracterize their employees actions as merely making disparaging REMARKS about his HAT?
Big Media substituted “group” for “two”.
Tony: “Take yer hat off”. Kid: “Excuse me?” Tony: “They don’t sell hot dogs here. They took the bleachers out 2 years ago”. Classic Tony!
I hope the Trump’s supporter (and his family at that !) was sane enough NOT to eat anything in the dishes served by these tolerant and inclusive leftists. I prefer not to think of what such open minded and loving and caring anti-trumpers would do to the food they serve to the customer.
My late father-in-law almost always wore his hat in a restaurant. Being a religious Jew, it was either that or a yarmulke.
