SAN FRANCISCO – A newly hired pizza shop employee in San Francisco had a short tenure after he was fired following a complaint from the police union, saying several officers were told they were “not welcome” at the eatery.
The San Francisco Police Officer’s Association said on Twitter Sunday evening that officers were told they “were not welcome” at the Pizza Squared restaurant, the Post Millennial reported.
The police association said they contacted the owners about the “shameful and hateful actions of one of their employees,” and the restaurant had a swift response regarding the fate of their employee who had only been on the job for three days.
This employee was a trainee & on his third day. When our shift manager told us about the incident after it happened, we expressly told him we didn’t share his views & that he was out of line. He was fired at the end of the day. When we notified by SFPOA, we apologized.
