Is Chef Ron Eyester exploiting patrons?
Old Fourth Ward resident, Holly Dunham, thinks so.
Dunham and Eyester sent 140-character messages back and forth after a tweet from the chef with a picture of an unsuspecting restaurant patron’s derriere.
“Settling in for some day drinkin’ @TheFamilyDogATL. She may be a distant relative of mine? http://twitgoo.com/2363o5,” Eyester sent in a tweet Tuesday (the link in the tweet points to the picture shown on the left).
After some backlash from his more than 3,000 Twitter followers including Dunham, Eyester kept the jokes rolling.
“Relax folks. The picture of girl drinking @TheFamilyDogATL wasn’t snapped by me. If I had taken the picture it wouldn’t of been blurry,” Eyester tweeted.
Dunham was particularly upset when Eyester attacked her personally.
“@HollyO4W Thanks for the grammar lesson. Was that your ass @TheFamilyDogATL?”
On one hand, it’s completely in keeping with his personality. We’d be lying if we said we didn’t think it was funny. On the other hand, it is out and out exploitation of customers.
The lesson here is if you want the Angry Chef’s undeniable good food, you better watch your rear.
