Mexican restaurant chain Mighty Taco bans Vladimir Putin: ‘No one likes a bully’
The Russian president is forbidden from entering any of the company’s 23 branches
Friday 04 April 2014
You’re never too small to make a stand against Vladimir Putin.
Mighty Taco, a fast-food chain of Mexican restaurants, has banned the Russian president from its branches until he stops “ picking on people” – referring to his seizure of Crimea from Ukraine.
The company, which has 23 eateries in western New York, posted a message on its Facebook page earlier this week, forbidding the politician from entering any of their locations - “even the one in Delaware and Hertel!”
“Normally at Mighty Taco, we don’t like to get political, but someone has to do something – and that someone is us!” said the firm’s Facebook statement.
“Mr Putin you won’t be ordering a Mighty Taco around here any time soon! “No one likes a bully, so stop picking on people and maybe you will be welcomed back to Mighty Taco.”
It is not known whether or not Putin likes Mexican food. McDonald's closed its restaurants in Crimea this week, citing "manufacturing reasons".
In other news relating to the controversial Russian president, he finalised his divorce from his wife of 30 years, Lyudmila, earlier this week. She described the parting as “civilised” and said that they will “always remain close”.
“It was a joint decision,” Putin said last year. “We hardly see each other; each of us has our own life.”
