<pThe post starts by noting that it is directed to "a Former Customer," and goes on to sarcastically thank the individual.

<p"Thank you for understanding that you have a right to express your venomous and vitriolic views — no matter how odious and ignorant — under the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution," the post reads.

<p"Thank you for feeling sufficiently comfortable in those views to express them, thereby making a spectacle of yourself—and allowing all who witnessed 'the incident'… to understand what a vile and loathsome individual you are," the restaurant's post continues.

<pThe post goes on to thank the woman for "using profanity" and "disrupting" the rights of others in the restaurant, before concluding with a missive moving forward.

<p"Thank you — and we mean this with all the aforementioned respect that you rightfully deserve — for never returning to Andy’s. You are not welcome," the post concludes.
