Ah yes, another thing that reminds me that social media in the 21st century has become a "tyranny of the mob" sort of thing. Don't like it if a restaurant has nutty policies? Go to social media and encourage thousands of followers to issue death threats to the restaurant owners. That's how this all works. Lobster restaurant apologizes after its ban on 'small screaming children' leads to backlash and social media death threats A lobster restaurant in Canada has issued a detailed and sincere apology after it was attacked by online commenters for a ban on 'small screaming children'. Lobster Pound and Moore, in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, had posted 'effective as of now, we will no longer allow small screaming children', saying that it 'caters to those who enjoy food and are out to enjoy themselves'. The message, posted last Sunday night, was deleted by Monday morning after a torrent of online abuse came from disgruntled parents. Commenters began giving the restaurant's Facebook page one-star reviews and said that they would never again set foot in his restaurant. The restaurant later posted an apology on the page, saying that the 'hate and threats' the owner had received had prompted him to reconsider his policy.
