A California restaurant closed over customers' refusal to wear masks, harassment of employees

A taco restaurant in Los Angeles temporarily shuttered both of its locations Sunday, raising concerns over the safety of their employees as some customers refused to wear masks and reportedly harassed staff for asking them to do so.

“Our taco stands are exhausted by the constant conflicts,” read a statement from Hugo’s Tacos, which has restaurants in Atwater Village and Studio City. “Staff have been harassed, called names, and had objects and liquids thrown at them. A mask isn’t symbolic of anything other than our desire to keep our staff healthy.”

The message was shared on social media and taped to multiple windows outside of both restaurants. Executive chef Nabor Diaz told KTLA5 the closure was necessary because he didn’t have enough employees that felt safe enough to go to work as it was.

“At this point, we think it’s really important for us to put the safety of our crew first,” he said.

2. Tell them to leave, call the cops.

These a holes need to be arrested for trespassing or assault if they can't behave properly.

Your business, your rules, no shirt, no shoes, no mask, f**k off.
