Throw the book at these damn Texans. And you wonder why people don’t want to take these restaurant jobs🙄🤷🏼‍♂️ People have lost their minds. The server was doing her job. In 1918, we had a global pandemic and a World War raging but people were wearing masks and doing what they could. In a world of crazy, I refuse to lose my humanity. Jail time

Why are not these people in prison waiting prosecution? Why I'm not surprised Disgusting! Those are not true Texans. They can move to Florida now. Where are their mug shots? All this could be avoided if they would just stop with the ridiculous vaccine crap... Tourists shouldn't have to go through this communist mandate

Ask me if I've been vaccinated! Animales Sadness. Are you tired of anti-vaccinators going after businesses who have mandatory vaccination policies, please consider signing this petition focused on ending this pandemic and share it with everyone you know:

Does it show a brawl or an assault? Good. Charge them Disgusting display of humanity Show their faces and names so we all know who they are. NYPDShea 🤬🤬🤬 The attackers statements: I just can’t get it: if I am not welcome I don’t step in! People need to think of consequences before losing all credibility. As a vax skeptics I respect the right of others to reject my point of view it is called democracy! There are so many other places you are welcome…

I hope they enjoyed their tour of city jail Ridiculous. And to think you can attack someone after that Texas quickly becoming the new Florida

Texan should not be allowed out of Texas These marmalukes do not represent all of us New Yorkers ! stevemjr These are the same people who would absolutely LOVE it if waitresses asked people to show proof they were citizens or had passports and were not “illegal immigrants”. NoWharButTexas do they go out in a pack like mad dogs, to look for what they perceive to be the weakest prey. This was premeditated. I speak from where I know...Texas.

🙄 “Everything’s bigger in TX” including ignorance Texans. Sigh. Hopefully the worker will end up owning the assents of the assaulter. I support the customers!!! The women have been identified as 49-year-old Sally Lewis, 44-year-old Kaeita Rankin, and her 21-year-old daughter Tyonnie Rankin. Enjoy the scrutiny ladies .

We Unearthed the 27 Best Rent Deals in NYC Right NowLooking for a two-bedroom under $3,000? We found several this week, including ones in Bed-Stuy and Turtle Bay. That’s $1200 tops for a house $625 apartment In Missouri and $12 a hr is min at this point Too expensive! Expensive as hell!

F Texas Maybe it was their only chance to not eat at an Olive Garden. Authentic Italian food was gnocching on the door and just like that it was snatched away from them. That should be 15 years prison each Thanks to bystanders who came to her aid! These are the worst people. Thus begins our decent into irrationality and chaos. We deserve this.

Give me a break, looks like a Tuesday at my local McDonald's Any restaurant or any business for that matter, that requires guests or customers to show proof of vaccination should be required to have posted publicly, proof of vaccination of every single employee of that establishment. If I have to prove I'm 'safe' they should too! 🤨

Taliban Overtakes Lower Manhattan Days After Biden Administration Leaves NYC 9/11 CommemorationNEW YORK—With the region descending into chaos much sooner than intelligence experts expected, the Taliban overtook Lower Manhattan Thursday, less than a week after the Biden administration left a memorial event at the site where the World Trade Center towers once stood. “It now appears evident that when President… That's frankly both poor and unfunny. Then they celebrate with Cuban cigars in trump tower while Donnie fellates them for their machismo. They've landed

What is wrong with people?!? FightFakeNews4 Allegedly? TX: Y'all got a table? NY: Youze gotta vaccine card? TX: JAIL for all 3 losers who assaulted a worker doing her job. The kitchen staff should’ve come out with their knives…send the heads back to Texas in a box. Color me shocked What’s the punishment for assault?

Why do we let people from the south into NYC Unacceptable behavior; NY needs to press serious charges against these Texan brutes. Essential workers are afraid to go back to work. Biden needs to put in place a STRONG MASK MANDATE. And anyone caught without one, fine them. And keep the MANDATE in place until they get sick of wearing it. And if you want to act a fool and fight people, throw they a** in jail. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Texan Republican All for business owners discriminating Except when they get discriminated against out of state. This is what happens when we accept ignorance that presents itself as personal belief. Someone who will not respect expertise feels free to indulge their emotions. They thought she was probably going to get an abortion as well. Usual mealy mouth Texans gaining up on poor defenseless woman. I am from Texas and this for whatever reasons couldn’t have me waiting next in line. Very fortunate for the Texans.

They all should have been put in jail until they are ready to get on the plane. Got to be Texas Make it cost the attackers a lot. Show them amd their bully friends that we’re done tolerating their stupid behavior. That’s so stupid the owner of that restaurant should be arrested for discrimination if they denied blacks or gays to enter they be in jail .

With so much to take in, in the big apple these fine, fine, people of Texas in their great wisdom decide to take a brief tour of NYPD's fine correction facility? They sure have a tale to tell when they get back to Texas on how they fought NYC and NYC won! 😁 Looks like these businesses will have to higher bouncers, just like they use at the bar scenes.

So these three don't keep up with the news? Hawaii is doing the same thing. No covid card, no service.

If you're going to act like an asshole, just stay in Texas. Proud boy Delta GOP variant and outstanding killer GovAbbott unleashed his thugs to make trouble in New York? 🤔 That doesn't make any sense. FUCK. TEXAS. Wtf did they expect. Pretty much everywhere in the city checks vaccination status. Disgusting. I couldn’t imagine acting like this, nevertheless traveling across the country to engage in this nonsense. That poor hostess

Book needs to be seriously thrown at these people. Thank you tRump and the Trumpublican cult for encouraging and giving legitimacy to these people . I know them well. I live in Texas You're not in Texas anymore. This is why foreign countries find Americans obnoxious when we visit: refuse to attempt the language, refuse to abide by customs and laws, appear superior and arrogant. Maybe Texans shouldn't be allowed to leave their state.

I don’t understand what’s wrong with people. Selfishness turns to violence while people are dying. Texans….smdh
