After a customer posted a review on Urban Spoon demanding the servers show more skin, the Atomic Grill in Morgantown, West Virginia decided to give the customer what he wanted: more skin.
You want more skin? I’ll give you more skin… potato skins…
The restaurant took action by offering a potato skin special for $7, and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the West Virginia Foundation for Rape Information Services.
“It was brutish. I was upset. I’m a father of a 12-year-old girl and I’ve got five sisters,” McCawley said. “The way that women are treated is pretty personal as far as I’m concerned.”
The post on Urban Spoon has been removed, but the Atomic Grill hopes the potato skin special educates people, raises awareness, and makes the anonymous reviewer look like an even bigger dick.
“If you have a minute, have some potato skins, try some fresh, local barbecue and give to a good cause. It’s important to us, it should be important to the community,” McCawley said.
And if potato skins aren’t enough skin for you, take a drive over to Hooters. Instead of potato skins and donations to rape crisis centers, Hooters offers scantily clad servers and rape jokes. On Saturday, a rape joke showed up on Hooters’ official Facebook page with the caption “EXHIBIT A: The proof that she was asking for it your Honour”.
After the restaurant was called out for the offensive joke, Hooters claimed their Facebook page was hacked and quickly took the picture down. But since the photo isn’t too far off from the kind of pictures the restaurant usually posts, you’re probably better off eating at the Atomic Grill.
