SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY FREE SPEECH DRAMA FORCES TEMP FÜD SHUT DOWN!!!
Not even vegans can escape the tense politics discourse amid this divisive era in politics in Kansas City and across the nation.
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS FOOD FIGHT AT CELEBRATED KANSAS CITY VEGAN RESTAURANT FÜD!!!
I don't know if vegans allow it but we suggest that everyone take all of this with a grain of salt and simply as a sign of tense times for anybody who wants to talk politics in real life . . . Here's the start of the FÜD drama:
We had an employee walk out. One of the other prep cooks was wanting to talk politics with her and she requested that he stop because he was coming from what I gather is an Alt-Right mentality. She requested and he refused to stop so she went to our boss Heidi and said that she did not feel comfortable working around him. Heidi then instead of telling the dude to cut the politics talk at work began defending his hateful viewpoints so the employee walked out like any reasonable human would have done.
A few days later a review appeared on FuD's google page which ill will post screencaps of below.
(Note: Here are the screencaps posted - Screencap one, Screencap two)
Every day Heidi shows up for about 30 minutes to make her TOP SECRET cashew cheese. This is generally the worst part of the day for us as employees because this is when she chooses to drown us in her ideologies or decides to relay the latest bullsh*t conspiracy she's read. In the review, posted below, a regular customer whose been overhearing her rhetoric from the dining room had had enough and went public with what they've heard.
I am here to state that everything that you read in that review is true . . .
However . . .
We feel like owner Heidi VanPelt-Belle should get a lot of credit here for her response . . .
CHECK THE FÜD OWNER RAGING AGAINST FAKE NEWS AND PARTISAN BICKERING IN THE WORKPLACE!!!
Here's part of what she wrote that was later edited on Google Reviews . . .
"NOTE: THIS IS A FAKE ACCOUNT, EVEN THE HATERS LOVE OUR FOOD! TWO STARS! We're really sorry you had to make this personal, and what an effort you made! However, I couldn't process your request to fire the employee you politically disagreed with, because that's illegal!!! You see, you can't fire people based on their political affiliations! So let's turn this hate speech frown upside down . . ."
What we know for sure, FÜD will be back in action very soon and is also in the process of expanding. We've seen Heidi in action and can attest to her dedication.
Still, what we're seeing throughout Kansas City is are worsening political divisions.
Is Prez Trump making this better or worse??? All we know is that cashew cheese makes everything better.
You decide . . .
