SAN MATEO, Calif. (AP) — A San Francisco Bay Area restaurant owner who was criticized after saying he would refuse service to anyone wearing a red “Make America Great Again” baseball cap has apologized and reversed course, saying Friday his restaurant will keep serving everyone.

J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, a chef-partner at the Wursthall restaurant in San Mateo, said in a statement on the Medium website that his political opinions will not interfere with service.

The article goes on to state the following:

Lopez-Alt apologized to his staff and business partners for not considering them before he tweeted Sunday: “It hasn’t happened yet, but if you come to my restaurant wearing a MAGA cap, you aren’t getting served, same as if you come in wearing a swastika, white hood, or any other symbol of intolerance and hate.”

He said Friday the tweet was his personal perspective, not restaurant policy. The tweet was no longer available.
