San Francisco restaurant Hilda and Jesse has apologized for removal and non-service to serve three uniformed and armed San Francisco police officers on Friday due to “their multiple weapons.” and the fact that the restaurant is a meeting place for BPOC and it made their staff feel “uneasy”. This comes after a huge backlash by LGBT and straight customers.
Co-owner of Hilda and Jesse’s Rachel Sillcocks took to Instagram to apologize:.
We made a mistake and apologize for the unfortunate incident on Friday when we asked members of the San Francisco Police Department to leave our restaurant, We are grateful to all members of the force who work hard to keep us safe, especially during these challenging times.SFGate
