Two Black cooks at NYU were fired – and it was the Black Students Union – that got them fired.
Many are calling this a case of FAKE WOKENESS gone wrong. Two longtime African American NYU chefs decided to add some soul food to the menu – in honor of Black History Month, and the FAKE WOKE students got them fired for it.
NYU’s Black students say the chefs were perpetuating “harmful racial stereotypes” when they put together a “Black History Month Meal” -ribs, collard greens, mac & cheese, yams, cornbread and watermelon flavored drink.
"We have zero tolerance for any employee who does not adhere to our values or contradicts our longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion. Employees at NYU who acted independently and did not follow our approved plan for the celebration of Black History Month have been terminated and are no longer with the company. We are extremely disappointed by this regrettable situation and apologize to the entire NYU community and communities everywhere for their insensitive and offensive actions. We are re-training all our NYU campus employees to ensure an incident like this is not repeated," the food producer's Aramark said in a statement.
Aramark has since suspended their director of Weinstein dining a full investigation is underway. They will also be putting their staff through rigorous training to prevent something like this from ever happening again.
