Controversial sign at Missouri Popeye’s: “reserve the right to refuse service to white people”
LAKE ST. LOUIS, MO (BIKER DAD)– “This restaurant is under new management and will reserve the right to refuse service to white people,” a sign reads in the drive-thru of a Missouri Popeye’s restaurant. The backlash over the controversial sign actually forced the store to close this week. But, it turns out the store wasn’t behind the sign at all.
KMOV-TV reports that police checked surveillance cameras and found that it was a hoax. Someone planted the sign there as a prank. But that didn’t stop the real consequences for the restaurant.
