Leave it to the Black lives Matter lovers to stir up drama over an creative little saying. Last month a New Italian restaurant made headlines for an innocent sign they put out front. Unlike the majority of the pussies that would have bowed their head and tucked their tales between their legs, this sassy company fired back with sweet revenge that is sure to piss the Black Lives Matter activists off.
The company wasn’t trying to stir up anger, they were simply trying to promote their new dish, pan-seared ahi tuna with a black olive tapenade relish, with a clever phrase on their sign, reading…”Black Olives Matter” in front of their restaurant.
Imagine their surprise when Black lives Matter radicals got involved. Now they are drawing, even more, criticism on social media because of the shirts they made in retaliation.
Camuglia posted pictures of the dish and the sign on Facebook, drawing complaints he was being insensitive and trivializing a movement aimed at trying to stop police shootings of black residents.
He said he’s not trying to stir racial tensions and was only trying to sell food.
Camuglia told the station people from ‘Australia, Spain, France’ and other places ‘have contacted him giving support’.
He said that he made shirts and hats because people who showed support asked if they could buy a souvenir from the restaurant.
The original sign that Camuglia put on his marquee sign read: ‘Black Olives Matter – Try Our Tapenade’.
At that time he told WRIC that he and his team ‘thought it was a cute play on words’.
During an interview, Camuglia stated to KRQE: ‘I think if that offends some people, a statement about black olives, that somebody needs to reevaluate their politically correct meter.’
He then took a photo of the sign and posted it to Facebook, where it immediately was criticized by people who thought the sign was in ‘very poor taste’.
A few Facebook users wrote that the sign was ‘insensitive’, ‘tacky and hideous’ and ‘offensive’.
Camuglia said he received a lot of phone calls from people who were really upset about the sign.
‘We didn’t think anybody would be offended by that, it was not our intent to offend anybody,’ he said in July.
Do you think he is right in doing this? One thing is for sure he is putting a target on his companies back, BLM activists are an entitled group of thugs who are prone to violence. Their beliefs are completely illogical…“it’s ok for us to do, but not you.” This group is like a cancer among our society that needs to be cut out before their violent destructive behavior kills us all.
