The offensive behavior and the ‘public humiliation’ of the cafe’s manager irked the netizens. As soon as the video caught attention, people asked for a complete boycott of the cafe.
After receiving flak from the public and #boycottcannoli becoming the top Twitter trend, the cafe owners posted a ‘not-so-sorry’ apology.
Showing dissatisfaction with their apology and as a protest against their insensitive behavior, residents of Islamabad organized an ‘Urdu mushaira’ outside the cafe as well.
Watch what the attendants of the ‘mushaira’ had to say:
Following the criticism, the cafe has been closed down for an indefinite period of time. There has been no official statement from the cafe regarding the closure, hence, there is no tentative date known for the reopening yet.
