The 60 years old iconic restaurant of Kolkata, Mocambo is in news from last two – three days and it is making headlines for a wrong reason. Dilshan Hemnani , a visitor to the city , has now called it “racist” for not letting her driver in for dinner on Friday.
Her Facebook post has now gone viral with over 10,000reactions, 16000 shares and over 3,000 comments.
Here is the crux from the post of Ms. Dilshan Hemnani:
“How shallow and inhuman have we become,” she wrote. Her driver, Manish, who had been driving her around for a week, and she were waiting in queue for a table at Mocambo, but those who came after them were let in first. When asked why, first there were excuses and then the shockers.”
“Madam, he is not properly dressed,” a Mocambo staff allegedly told Ms Hemnani. Some argument over dress codes later, another allegedly said, “He is drunk”. She said, “Racist.”
It has gone viral on social media and people are demanding to boycott Mocambo. People are calling it shameful and they are boiling with anger but then, there are some people who are supporting restaurant.
