Hitler’s Eatery To Get A New Name By Betsy Newmark
The owner says he didn’t realize that some people would be so offended by his calling his restaurant “Hitler’s Cross” and so he’ll give it a new name.
Puneet Sablok said he would remove Hitler’s name and the Nazi swastika from billboards and the eatery’s menu after it had angered so many people. He had previously said the name and symbols were only meant to attract attention.
“Yes, I have decided to change the name. I never wanted to hurt people’s feelings,” said Sablok, who made the decision after meeting with members from Bombay’s small Jewish community.
“Once they told me how upset they were with the name, I decided to change it. I never wanted to create this controversy or hurt people with this name,” said Sablok. “I don’t want to do business by hurting people.”
What’s next? Stalin’s Sandwich Shop? Darfur Dainties? Milosevic’s Mellow Dining? Bin Laden’s Beanery? What do you name a restaurant after you have named it after Hitler?
