A Muslima working at a suburban Houston cupcake shop showed up one day in a bright green hijab, never having worn one to work before. The owner asked her to wear a black one instead, at their expense, to comport with the shop’s uniform. She quit and then attempted a social media shaming campaign. Hamas-CAIR is considering whether or not to weigh in.
Another islamofauxbic hate crime turns out to have been nothing of the kind. So very often we see that hate crimes against Muslims turn out to have been faked — mostly so that Muslims can claim they’re being persecuted and that counter-terror efforts have to end. And the authorities fall for this virtually every time.
“Social media firestorm erupts over discrimination allegation,” by Kaitlin McCulley, KTRK, November 14, 2016 (thanks to Witness to Jihad):
SPRING, TX (KTRK) — Treat! Gourmet Cupcakes co-owner Sharron Aaron says that one of her Muslim employees has always been willing to educate her on the religion, especially after a recent trip to the Middle East.
Aaron says she asked the employee to wear a black scarf instead to match their uniforms, adding that the company would pay for it.
“She was a good employee,” Aaron said. “I guess the surprise came when I came in to work last Thursday, and she was wearing a bright green scarf over her head.”…
“She said that because of her religion and her pilgrimage and the election that she had decided to take her religion a step further by wearing the scarf.”
After that, Aaron says the employee resigned.
Social media, however, shares a different story, saying the employee was fired because she chose to wear a hijab.
In the last few days, the store’s Facebook page has been flooded with negative reviews from people across the country.
The employee declined to be interviewed for this story.
“What has been put out there is the furthest from the truth,” Aaron said. “We are not racist, we are not, really, anti-anything here. We have a whole variety of people who work for us in the past and still work for us… and we have friends from all walks of life and faith.”
“Houston business responds to social media post involving Muslim employee,” by Will Axford, Houston Chronicle, November 14, 2016 (thanks to Witness to Jihad):
A young woman took to social media Friday and accused a Houston business of religious discrimination against one of its employees.
Alexa Banda wrote on Facebook that Treat Gourmet Cupcakes fired an employee for wearing a hijab to work.
“I will not tolerate this kind of stuff as an American and I will continue to speak up and stand up for my fellow American and people who deserve their right to freedom in this country and you should too!” Banda wrote in the post with a photo of Treat.
By Monday, Treat was flooded with emails and responded to Banda’s post. The company denied discriminating against an employee.
“We have been respectful of religious needs and have never discriminated against anyone,” Treat wrote. Our dress code in the font is black slacks, and black Treat jacket that we provide for our employees. We asked our employee to make a color changed to wear a black hijab instead of bright green and she agreed. We are deeply saddened by this as we respect all of our employees and their religious beliefs.”
Banda so far has not responded to Treat’s post. As of Monday, Banda’s post had 70 shares.
