Like many people who have worked food service at one time or another, I always enjoy seeing a story of a douchey customer get their well-deserved comeuppance, especially when it’s at the hands of the owner.
This is not that story.
All that Ruchu Tan wanted was to leave a negative Yelp review of an Asian place in Cleveland called Ninja City, and be on his way. But that wasn’t to be the case.
I’ll grant that Mr. Tan giving only one-star was a little overly harsh for things that don’t seem like a huge deal, but who am I to tell someone how to do entirely subjective rankings? Apparently Bac Nguyen, the owner of Ninja City does not share my belief in personal restraint in judging reviews, because the dude went all out stalker status on my boy Ruchu, tracking him down on Facebook and absolutely emasculating him in this barrage of impeccably out-of-line insults:
People are now calling for a boycott of the restaurant, which in itself seems a bit over the top, but at this point, I think it’s safe to assume that everyone in Cleveland appears to not know the proper level of outrage to direct at pretty much anything.
I, however, will not be visiting Ninja City anytime soon, either. I have no desire to end up with a dude I don’t know trying to slide hate up in my DMs. But mostly because it’s like 2,000 miles away, and I don’t like ramen that much..
