This video recently leaked throughout the Chicagoland area. It shows a racist man verbally attack Muslim teens at a restaurant. This took place at Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant in Hickory Hills. Chicagoist writes, “Sawin Osman, a 17-year-old Chicago native, was heading to the front to pay a bill with friends who, like Osman, was wearing a hijab headscarf at the time, when the man started his apparently unprompted tirade.” Take a look at the video, and beware, there is some racist and offensive language used throughout. Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant also made a statement on the issue: “Pepe’s Incorporated and our entire Franchise family offer our sincere apologies to the women who were harassed and insulted by another customer at one of our restaurants on Monday night. Pepe’s condemns and rejects all discriminatory comments and actions directed to any of our customers and employees. Pepe’s has always worked hard to create a safe and welcoming atmosphere at our restaurants for all of our customers and will continue to do so in the future. The customer who made the inflammatory comments to the women will not be allowed in our restaurants. The safety, comfort, and welfare of all our patrons and employees is our utmost concern. We are reviewing our policies and procedures to ensure that all our customers will continue to enjoy their dining experience at Pepe’s.”
