A video posted online shows a Black woman, Marcia Grant, and her son being denied service at Ouzo Bay in Baltimore because of how her son was dressed. However, the video also shows a white boy dressed in athletic apparel, who they didn’t have a problem serving.
After the video was posted, Atlas Restaurant Group, who owns Ouzo Bay, released a statement via twitter to condemn what happen in the video.
“This should have never happened,” the company said “We sincerely apologize to Marcia Grant, her son and everyone impacted by this painful incident. This difficult situation does not represent who or what Atlas Restaurant Group stands for.”
The restaurant also said the manager shown in the video denying the mother and son service has been placed on “indefinite leave.”
