For years, the most controversial thing about Lloyd Taco was its prices: $8.49 for a single burrito.
That all changed last week when the popular Buffalo, New York-based food-truck empire served Chorizo Mackin' Cheese and Aztec Brownies to workers at a federal immigration detention facility in Batavia. After receiving a handful of "yikes" responses from leftists on social media, the company swiftly apologized and promised to make amends, only to spend the next few days bombarded with thousands of angry messages from conservatives who accused the regionally beloved chain of disrespecting law enforcement, veterans and America.
I’m gonna shoot honest. When I had my vending machine route, and i had one in a place that made 10 other places angry (for whatever absurd reason) I don’t know what i’d do.
It’s easy to talk tough when it’s not food being taken out of your kids’ mouths.
I hope i’d do what my conscience told me to
Get woke. Go broke.
The proper response of a business person would be: We sell our products to all. The only people we discriminate against are those who cant pay for it. Now buzz off.
First SUVs killing people, now a Taco truck delivering apologies on behalf of its owner?
Shut up and serve the tacos!
Good Lord, a talking truck?
Guiltism is as bad as racism.
And going brokism is worse than both! :)
Best make Mexican restaurants & food services, illegal & close them down. Its the leftist solution and stops that evil cultural appropriation.
I’m against illegal immigration, but I eat Mexican food. I’m also against Communist China, but I eat Chinese food (well, really “Chinese Food” they make for Americans). WTF is wrong with the left in this country? Politics of division.
I guess they've been learning from all those SUVs that roll into a crowd of people for no reason.
“”We are not political,” said one of Lloyd Taco’s embattled co-founders, Pete Cimino.”
Uh...yeah you are...and stupid political at that. Anybody that would apologize as s result of 18 negative responses from the vast Internet universe is just not too bright.
Get woke, you should go broke.
Appeasement doesn’t work.
Pandering to the bullies on the left gets us nowhere.
In this hypersensitive egg shell world we live in, sometimes silence is the best answer.
50% of ICE’s force is Hispanic. Any Liberal that goes against them is a racist towards brown people. Prove me wrong.
Business can make liars of people. So....if a liar tells a lie, is it?
Must be one of those murder SUVs from a few years ago. Nice to know he's turned his life around.
I’m always apologizing since it seems to be ingrained in the Canadian culture and I’m probably a bit weak when I shouldn’t be. However one thing being on FR for 18 years now or the internet even longer has taught me is one has to develop a thick skin and ignore what one considers stupidity. There are a lot of stupid snipers out there in cyberworld.
