Today, Huck Finn’s Café recognizes that the action taken by an employee Thursday afternoon has caused a great deal of outrage and heartache among many in our community and on social media. We acknowledge that the anger and disappointment being expressed is legitimate and has serious merit. We want everyone to know that we agree. The employee’s behavior was offensive and completely unacceptable.
Ownership stands by the decision of the restaurant’s general manager to immediately and unilaterally fire the employee for his deplorable behavior. It was the right decision and his termination is consistent with company policy. Moreover, Huck Finn’s Café is committed to reviewing all of our systems to further prevent anything of this nature from ever happening again.
Finally, we sincerely hope that the ignorant action of one employee is not considered a reflection of the entire staff at Huck Finn’s Café. His behavior and language simply do not fit our belief system. All of our customers should be treated with love, dignity and respect, and we will not tolerate anything less. We humbly apologize to our customers and our community for this deeply regrettable incident. We share your heartache and outrage and would welcome an opportunity to deliver a personal apology to the individuals involved in the incident.
