The Internet is buzzing after a sign banning Donald Trump supporters was posted at a Taco Cabana and now the Tex-Mex restaurant chain born in Texas is feeling the heat.
Once the photograph (pictured above) of what looks like a restaurant flier hit social media, Taco Cabana's CEO Todd Coerver took to Twitter to point out it was not restaurant policy and said it was posted by someone as a prank.
Addison-based Fiesta Restaurant Group, Inc., which runs Taco Cabana, told The Dallas Morning News via email that the poster "was up less than an hour" and that a worker saw it and took it down. "Multiple brands [were targeted] primarily Latin concepts."
Coerver said his company has alerted all of its restaurants to be on the look out and remove any unauthorized signage.
The San Antonio Express-News reported Tex-Mex restaurant Mama Margie's was also targeted with a sign that said: "Due to his consistent disparaging comments directed towards Mexicans. WE WILL NO LONGER BE SERVING DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTERS OR SYMPATHIZERS. Thanks you for your cooperation – MGMT"
Mama Margie's owner said the restaurant had nothing to do with the sign. "Mama's is in the business of tacos, not politics," Susan O'Brien told the newspaper Sunday.
