Restaurant that got duped by alt-righters (Nazis) donates $10K to Anti-Defamation League

When Maggiano’s Little Italy restaurant in D.C. found out that they’d been duped by a group of white nationalists over the weekend, they knew they had to act quickly to make it right.

When an image of the group dining and celebrating — and sieg-heiling — at the restaurant emerged on social media, Maggiano’s soon learned that the group was from the “think tank for white supremacists” National Policy Institute.

The image was posted to social media star Tila Tequila‘s Twitter account and showed her and two other men performing the Nazi salute with the caption, “Sieg Heil!”

Maggiano’s took to the Washington City Paper and issued the following statement:

“On Friday night, Maggiano’s in Friendship Heights was the inadvertent site of a protest that caused us to close our restaurant to protect the safety of our Teammates and Guests. The protesters were upset because of a banquet we were hosting for a group called the National Policy Institute (NPI). This was a last minute booking made Friday afternoon, and the reservation was made under a different name, therefore we were not aware that NPI was dining with us or what the group represents.

We want to sincerely apologize to the community of Friendship Heights for inadvertently hosting this meeting, which resulted in hateful sentiment,” the statement added. “We want you to know that at the suggestion of one of our Guests, we are donating the profits from our restaurant sales on Friday, $10,000, to the DC office of the Anti-Defamation League, which for decades has been working to bring people together in peace and understanding.”

Tequila’s Twitter account has since been suspended.

  5. what, fetuses? What are you talking about… we are talking about guns… that is a cute subversion to discuss something entirely unrelated. I might add, fairly bold to presume anything about my positions on fetuses…I am not sure how i follow someone who’s had a cell implanted into them has no rights? of course they do, their bodies are their property. I do think fetuses have some right to life at some point as well, but that is certainly a complicated issue being brought up here for literally no reason other than to make ad hominem attacks ( another logical fallacy- keep up the great work avoiding factual discussions) against your presumed and apparently prejudice expectation of who and what I stand for. Just because I don’t agree with someones personal choices doesn’t mean I think I should control their ability to do so unlike you.
