Owner and chef of the Austin, Texas-based restaurant Thai Noodle House, Eddie Nimibutr, posted the following comment regarding the victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec 14:
â€œI'm failing to give a damn about the CT shooting," wrote the Thailand-born Nimibutr on Friday. "I don't care if a bunch of white kids got killed. F**k Post-Racial bullshit. When kids from minority groups get shot, nobody cares. When Israel launched missiles at the school on Gaza, everybody was too busy jerking off. Why should i care about people who dont give a damn about me? Personal responsibility, right?"
The company removed the post and said Nimibutr was no longer employed at the shop. They also said he was never the owner. But the damage was done as reviewers on Yelp flooded the shop's page with one star reviews. Some even threatened Nimibutr with physical violence.
