Netizens Cancel Sham Idrees and Queen Froggy For Faking Islamophobia Incident in Canada Cafe

Sham Idress and Queen Froggy allegedly faked an Islamophobia Incident

Recently, YouTubers Sham Idrees and Queen Froggy visited a Canadian cafe chain, Demetres, and accused the staff of Islamophobia. The social media stars took to Instagram to call out the cafe for refusing to serve the YouTubers because of their faith.

Sham Idrees and Queen Froggy’s Account of Events

In a video posted on Instagram, Sham Idrees said:

We just had the worst experience of our lives. The racist servers told us they would not serve ‘people of our kind’. My wife and family members included hijabis.

Narrating the incident, Queen Froggy said:

We just got back from Demetres. It’s a dessert cafe in Ontario, Canada. I took my kids, my family, and some of my hijabi friends. We just wanted to have some dessert and a night out. The servers at that location did not want to take our order. They asked us to leave the restaurant and said if we didn’t leave the restaurant, they would call the cops, which they did because we are Muslim and they didn’t want to take our order.

Queen Froggy captioned the Instagram post with:

I am so heartbroken. Demetres Oakville didn’t take our order and told us to leave because we are Muslim and wear hijab. I am so disgusted. Go to Google Maps, click review and give 1 star [to Demetres] and write #BanIslamophobia. Let’s make sure it never happens to anyone again!

Demetres Cafe denies all Allegations

In response to the videos posted by the YouTubers, Demetres issued a statement on their social media unveiling a different side of the coin.

The statement read:

We believe there was a misunderstanding between employees and our guests regarding seating arrangements due to Covid-19 restrictions. The situation escalated, and the guests were asked to leave.

 

Netizens are supporting the cafe’s version of events

Several netizens have taken to the comment section of the YouTuber couple and have accused Sham Idrees and his wife of lying about what happened. Kanwal Ahmed, the founder of a well-known Facebook group Soul Sisters Pakistan, said:

Sham Idrees has done a disservice to Muslims in Canada by faking a scenario of his wife being discriminated against for her hijab. This undermines actual complaints of Islamophobia.

Other Instagram users also pointed out loopholes in Sham Idrees’ version of the events, saying that the couple provided a part of the entire story that favored their argument.

A social media user also argued that cafe Demetres was already serving women wearing hijabs (as seen in the video), so how can the staff discriminate against the YouTuber couple and their family.

Sham Idrees come forward with proof

In response to the criticism, Sham Idrees took to Instagram once again with another video message showcasing proof of the Islamaphobia incident. In the video, the YouTuber plays snippets of recordings that unveil the statements and behavior of Demetres’s staff.

However, netizens are still doubtful of the YouTuber couple’s claims of Islamophobia. Many people took to the comment section asking Sham Idrees to post the full video recording of the confrontation with Demetres’ staff as proof instead of posting snippets.

People are still waiting for the full story to be uploaded as the YouTuber hasn’t given in to the request yet. While some have already made their minds about who’s in the right, many people are still waiting to know more about the story before reaching a verdict.
