Skip to comments.El Tiempo Cantina shuts down social media accounts amid backlash over Jeff Sessions photo
Posted on 08/12/2018 9:59:38 AM PDT by Snickering Hound
Houston chain El Tiempo Cantina appears to have deleted its social media pages, a day after a photo of the restaurant's owner with Attorney General Jeff Sessions drew outrage and calls for a boycott.
El Tiempo did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but the chain's Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages were down Saturday afternoon.
On Friday, owner Roland Laurenzo posted a photo with a caption saying it was an "honor" to serve Sessions, who was in town to discuss immigration enforcement with law enforcement officers. The post was quickly condemned by customers, some of whom called for a boycott.
Laurenzo soon after responded, writing that the photo "does not represent us supporting (Sessions') positions."

Imagine how mad they’d be if an effective member of the Trump admin was in that photo.
“Bask in the tolerance of the left.”
Or bask in their food! Let’s teach the Left a lesson.
Id boycott it too. For completely opposite reasons.
Trumps latest tweet:
Trump: AG Jeff Sessions Is Scared Stiff and Missing in Action
As has been said by President Trump. Jeff Sessions is “scared stiff.”
I already boycott them because they are crowded and overpriced. What a weasel the owner is for not standing up for what he posted.
Since the owner insists that the photo “does not represent us supporting (Sessions’) positions.” he has lost both sides.
Once the commitment is made, you’ve got to stand by it.
Scripture tells us, “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
And common sense tells us that he who straddles the fence gets a picket in the crotch.
Businesses. Is it worth having social media pages if those pages just act as lightning rods for the outrage mob? Better to follow this business and shut down social media.
Bask in the tolerance of the left.
I worked around many lefties for a long time. Tolerance and respect for the opinions of others is not their thing.
Wow! Imagine how mad theyll be if he ever wakes up...
Being conflicted seems so much more difficult these days....
He was found at El Tiempo!
..and to think, this used to be a free country.. now it is enslaved by the ideologies of idiots and assigned to an inglorious end at this rate.
Well well well well. Guess a whole bunch of Trump supporters should start giving them business.
The man said the picture didn’t mean they agree with all of Sessions’ positions. That doesn’t mean anything. You are not allowed to state your opinion. So NEVER backtrack.
And this isn’t a violation of the free speech in the Constitution. The government isn’t calling for destroying his business.
These people will attack you for having a Trump bumper sticker. We need to fight back by mirroring them..
We don’t approve of anyone separating parents and children.”
I guess that next they will post a dramatic statement that they do not approve of people breaking laws that require they be jailed in jails that are not satisfactory places for children.
So the protesters hate law enforcement?
The owner may have been happy to have a a photo.
Back in the kitchen, I bet the illegal cooks spat in his food.
These people hate the entire country for them losing the white house. I am not sure that people can stoop any lower in maturity than this.
(I guess this applies to my own 'pontificating' on FreeRepublic as well as the current rage of "Social Media diarrhea of the mouth" that afflicts personages both high and low, and businesses.)
