Olive Garden Refuses to Let Patron Display American Flag
This story is almost as disgusting as Olive Garden’s food:
Controversy over an Alabama Olive Garden’s refusal to allow a patron to enter the restaurant with an American flag reportedly has prompted the restaurant chain to issue a personal apology from its vice president.
The patron, 80-year-old Marti Warren, told MyFoxAl.com she was outraged after being told she could not bring the flag into the restaurant to attend a Kiwanis Club award banquet.
“This is not my country. This is not my country I grew up with,” Warren said, adding that she and the club then contacted Olive Garden’s parent company, Darden restaurants.
Olive Garden has issued public statements apologizing, including on its Facebook page.
