Apparently during his racist rant, the man mentions he put “a little something extra’ in the food of Black patrons during his stint as a restaurant worker at an eatery in New Orleans. Online sleuths did some digging and discovered the man’s connection to Joe’s Cafe and began calling to voice their concerns.
Owners and employees of Joe’s got so many threats after the racist social media post that they issued a statement claiming the post was falsely tied to their establishment by someone on social media.
“Rumors are circulating social media that Joe’s Café employs an individual under the social media profile of Chris Ditta of Terrytown whose Facebook profile contains extremely racist and profane comments. This assumption is false and incorrect. We do not employ this individual, associate with this individual, and do not support or condone these views.
Joe’s Café was a target of an individual or individual(s) who maliciously intended to cause economic harm to our business and our family’s reputation. We value all of our customers and employees regardless of race. We have raised our family on Christian values and embed these values into our 30-year business in the treatment of our employees and customers. We are currently investigating the parties involved”
