Cheesecake Factory Apologizes, Fires Workers Who Taunted Man in MAGA Hat

The Cheesecake Factory on Wednesday apologized for—and fired—the employees who allegedly harassed a customer wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat at one of its restaurants on Mother’s Day. The 22-year-old man, Eugene Joseph, was at a Miami location when he said he was intimidated and threatened for wearing the hat. “Those two individuals are no longer employed with the company,” according to a press release by the Cheesecake Factory. “No guest should ever feel unwelcome in one of our restaurants and we are very sorry.”
