To maintain a feeling of novelty, restaurants are often decorated with news clippings and photos from the past. Most of the time, patrons don’t give them a second thought as they have their meal. But a Joe’s Crab Shack in Roseville, Minnesota wasn’t so lucky and had to make a public apology after guests found a seriously troubling photo on their table.
According to USA Today, Tyrone Williams and Chauntyll Allen were sitting at a table when they looked at their table and saw a picture of a black man being lynched. The bottom of the picture read “Hanging at Groesbeck, Texas, on April 12th, 1895” and a caption at the top read “All I said was that I didn’t like the gumbo.”
