Not surprised here, but nonetheless, we still have some ignorant, uneducated people to deal with . . .

Muslim Man’s Burger Comes With 9/11 Terror Drawing


On September 11, a Muslim man going by the name "Tarek G." on Yelp ordered a burger from the Houston restaurant Petrol Station and received it in a "Happy September 11" box complete with an airplane crashing into one of the Twin Towers. Now that's personalized customer service.

Tarek G. also got a free dessert, so to speak:

Today is September 11th - and personally I don't think it's a nice way to honor the nearly 3,000 people who died that day 10 years ago. I said as much to the bartender, and asked him to please take the burger away and give me a refund. He sort of scoffed and proceeded to speak with his manager, and within earshot, called my friend and I "assholes" for complaining about what he clearly thought was funny. To be fair, the manager came over and provided me with a refund, but no apology or explanation.

And a memorable send-off as well:

As I walked out, I heard from behind the bar "Allahu Akbar..." repeated several times.

News of Tarek G.'s bigot-burger experience reached Petrol Station owner Ben Fullilove, who was utterly mortified by the whole affair. "I understand the damage that gets done to your business, but I have to know for myself that we're ok with that guy," Fullilove told Eater Houston. "I got a chance to shake his hand and apologize to him and that means a lot more to me than the damage to my business." Not that he's concerned about negative Yelp reviews or anything!

Fullilove also fired the employee-artiste for his "really, really retarded" acts. Uh-oh! Might have averted a protest from the Houston Muslim community, but word's still out on the disability rights advocates. Send in the sensitivity trainers, quick.

Other then the fact that beers are Harram, the burgers were Harram. I think it is disgusting that they serve alcohol at a Petrol pump?
Shouldn't that be illegal, because drink driving is illegal?
