All Petrol Station employees to get sensitivity training in the wake of "Happy9/11" drawing
If not, a quick fill in: A bartender scribbled an offensive doodle (depicting a plane flying into the Twin Towers, and a "Happy September 11th" message) on a Muslim customer's to-go box — which prompted a negative Yelp review, frantic tweets of apology and a firing/apology resolution.
CultureMap spoke with Petrol Station owner Ben Fullelove after the news broke and the tensions dissipated — and he says he's trying to move on.
"We took care of it by firing our employee, and we were able to talk to the person involved which — to us — was the most important thing," Fullelove says.
Fullelove says that the situation was a fluke, but he still plans to do sensitivity training with the rest of his staff.
"We don't want anything like this to happen again," Fullelove says. "We have a social responsibility."
