For some reason, the left has turned our National Anthem into a controversial topic, and now Buffalo Wild Wings has found itself at the center of the turmoil after disgracing the song on the anniversary of 9/11.
What started with a lone spoiled brat in the NFL taking a knee before his games has turned into a nationwide debate over whether or not Americans should honor the country that’s given them everything. Now, it’s seemingly once a week that someone crosses the line and disrespects both the flag and the anthem that’s supposed to unite us all as a nation.
On Monday night, an employee at the Riverside County Buffalo Wild Wings in California took things too far when they refused to allow their customer to hear our National Anthem prior to the Monday Night Football game. A customer named Lori dining at the Eastvale restaurant said the employee claimed the song was too controversial and that it was company policy not to play it, CBS Los Angeles reported.
“No one understood what was so controversial. It’s 9/11, it’s a sporting event, why is it controversial?” she said.
So Lori took a picture of the employee, who still hasn’t been identified, and posted it to Facebook, where naturally it went viral. Although Lori also stated that a manager immediately apologized for the incident.
After being called out over the matter, the franchise owner issued a statement apologizing, and stated that it’s not their policy to ban the Anthem from their stores.
It’s unclear whether or not the employee was fired from their job. However, it would seem as if terminating them for such an egregious act against our nation would be the proper course of action.
