Tiki Bar Closed for Committing Cultural Appropriation

We have already seen people run out of business by the thought police for culturally appropriating Mexican food. Now even permitting influences from other states in the Union is forbidden:

A Hawaii-themed restaurant owner in Oregon was forced to close down following accusations of cultural appropriation.

Cloud Davidson opened The Hapuna Kahuna Tiki Bar & Kitchen on June 22. He was forced to shut it down just weeks later.

The thought criminal issued the standard groveling apology:

“I unintentionally made a mistake and I’m very sorry,” Davidson told The Corvallis Gazette-Times on Friday. …

“I’m very sympathetic to the issues that were brought up to me. And I’m not for a moment going to tell a person of color that they’re wrong for how they feel,” he said.

Of course not. Such insolence would constitute blasphemy.

The business owner claims he opened the restaurant because he spent much time in Hawaii in his youth visited family who lived there. “A lot of this has to do with family. That was a big part of my childhood.”

According him, however, locals of Polynesian ancestry and the Oregon State University Asian and Pacific Cultural Center criticized his newly-opened venue, pointing out how he used a Hawaiian name, displayed traditional iconography in a cartoonish way, and handed out Hawaiian leis to customers.

The bigoted scoundrel.

Cultural appropriation will no longer be tolerated.

On a tip from Jester and Dragon’s Lair.

    Need a global war to kill off some of these emotional communists of color.

    This story smells funny. How can he be “forced” to close unless he was denied a business license, had a liquor license revoked, had a sufficiently virulent boycott and blockade imposed by SJWs etc?

    I’d guess, as he owns other theme joints, he just decided this wasn’t worth the trouble (i.e. profit) of saying “Lighten up, folks.” I understand, but this is about as easy a case to make a stand as there could be. The attacks on him are indefensibly stupid.

    I know I’m preaching to the choir, but the absurdity of all these “appropriation” complaints would imply we’ll need some sort of blood test to make sure all our cooks, servers and owners have sufficient heritage to be involved in ethnic restaurants. The rub for these crybabies: what if a Caucasian chef claims the right to cook Polynesian because he is trans-racial, always having felt a kinship with the Polynesian peoples?

    Just btw.. George Loonie is moving back to his LA mansion because the one in Englandistan was deemed too unsafe for his kids by his security detail.

    Uh huh!

    Don’t even think about opening an Irish-Mexican restaurant there.

    Hey, Cloud! I’d suggest you move to where I live (but have no desire to see any even potential Moonbats reside here) — let me just say move to the Southeast and re-open your restaurant — if the food and ambiance are good, and the prices reasonable, you’ll become a millionaire in short order. Any Libtard idiot (like all those in the Peoples’ Soviet Republic of Oregon – ooops, that name is undoubtedly “appropriated” from an Indian tribe! Or, I should say, a Native American clan. So, be careful!), would be shouted down or “roughly handled,” shall we say, by those of us enjoying your cuisine — basically, they would be told to FO and get the f out!

    When are the black women who have straightened hair, going to be forced to let it be naturally nappy, by white women who have been ‘culturally appropriated’ ?

    Which raises another important p;oint or two.

    McDonalds….do they even serve Scottish food? And Wendy’s…Did Dave Thomas even have his daughter’s permission to use her name.

    And then there is Arctic Circle. None are actually located within the Arctic Circle. No do they serve clubbed baby seals.

    Ok… shutting down a Tiki bar is just f×cking wrong. They are freaking awesome and a fun oasis amongst all the other pretentious and cold watering holes.

    Oregon is on the PACIFIC coast, so it should be OK. He should sue THEM for infringing on his “Pacific heritage”.
