A San Francisco restaurant who kicked three police officers out of their establishment on Friday because they were wearing uniforms and carrying guns now says they’re sorry.

The restaurant, Hilda and Jesse, initially seated the three San Francisco Police Department officers at a table when they arrived on Friday.

However, staff at the restaurant soon asked them to leave. Rachel Sillcocks, one of the owners of the restaurant, said later in a statement, “Our restaurant is a safe space – particularly for queer and bipoc individuals. Furthermore, the fact that they were in uniform with multiple weapons on them made our staff uncomfortable, and potentially other guests, so they were asked to leave. We would happily welcome them off duty, out of uniform, and without weapons.”

After getting hit with a wave of backlash for kicking out the officers, the restaurant released the following statement on Sunday:

We made a mistake and apologize for the unfortunate incident on Friday when we asked members of the San Francisco Police Department to leave our restaurant.

We are grateful to all members of the force who work hard to keep us safe, especially during these challenging times. We hope this will be a teachable moment for us as we repair and continue to build bridges with the SFPD. These are stressful times, and we handled this badly.

– Rachel Sillcocks and Kristina liedags Compton, co-owners of “Hilda & Jessee SF” Restaurant

  1. Do these fuking stupid people realize that a officer is always supposed to have his service weapon with him they are technically never off duty. Screw that shithole restaurant

  2. Absolutely police should make you feel safer with their presence. If you don’t feel that then you’re probably on the wrong side of the law! Why would a restaurant manager cater to their woke staffers whims that only benefit their own insane belief’s? We need our police and we need to support them!

  3. Hope they go out of business! When they have a crime at their restaurant they better not call the police! Ignorance at it’s finest, Police have to carry their guns!

  4. Well it looks like they have finally convinced everyone that cops are criminals absolutely ridiculous
    There’s good and bad in everything.

  5. Their not apologizing their begging people to come back, they ucked up and karma bit the in the azz and they didn’t expect the outrage this brings the true meaning of go woke go broke.

  6. These are probably the liberals that also voted for Prop 4 that is allowing people to commit crimes against other businesses in their city to get off with no punishment.

  7. OH yes, police officers have a record of opening fire on the public, especially when they are ‘queer’ or BIPOC or whatever today’s alphabet soup may be.

    Any place that throws out the cops should be told ‘sorry, police are not allowed on your property’ when they call someday for help.

  8. Boycott this place! Their apologies after the fact mean absolutely nothing! They should have thought before they opened their stupid mouths. We don’t need any establishments like this in our country!

  9. San Francisco is in the toilet.. your establishment is a joke. How dare you treat these Officers like a pos. If some perp robs you who you going to call “Ghostbusters ”⁉️⁉️

  10. This Democrats and liberals that have short memories. Did they not remember what happened to other establishments that did this very same thing. SMH they are too late…,.
