True Kitchen + Kocktails, a Dallas, Texas dining establishment, is currently on the bad end of the press train after a now-viral video was posted onto social media. The supposed owner of the spot put a table of twerking diners on blast and went on a rant about how he doesn’t want such acts in his space, prompting Twitter to get cheeky with the responses.
Twitter user @ariellezsane_ set it all off when she shared a series of tweets in a thread that led to the video everyone is discussing at the moment.
“Not True’s owner going off on customers and telling them to ‘gtf out’ and ‘he doesn’t need their money.’ I can’t,” @ariellezsane_ tweeted. She then posted the video as seen below.
Twitter user @_tootieraww added her own video of the incident.
Sparking a debate of respectability politics and talk of music being played inside the place changing the twerk dynamic, Twitter has been ablaze with back and forths supporting all sides of the argument.
We’ve got those reactions below.
