Restaurant customer sparks backlash over issue with server's anti-racism T-shirt: 'This isn't professional'

A restaurant customer triggers a wave of online setbacks after publicly complaining about the clothing on his server, which shows a t-shirt that says "Don't be racist".
The diner, known on Facebook as Jason Lassiter, shared his negative review after eating at Chowder House, a soup and sandwich shop in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Lassiter wrote a review on the restaurant's Facebook page, complaining that his server's outfit was not "professional" and that he didn't need to see an employee's "ideology" on a shirt.
"This is not a professional shirt for work and will be the last time I visit your company," Lassiter also wrote in his review, which has since been deleted. "I know that my patronage alone will not affect you, but good luck with your social warrior campaign."
The poor rating came to light after the server in question, who was on Twitter with Bryantinak, shared a photo of the shirt they were wearing that day. Bryantinak originally wrote that her employers were crazy about the outfit, but the managers later made it clear that they had misunderstood.
"Someone complained on our Facebook page today that I was wearing my favorite shirt. Now I can no longer wear it at work," wrote the employee.

As it turned out, the management of the Chowder House was only angry with Lassiter and called its rating an "absurd complaint". The restaurant added that Bryantinak was allowed to continue wearing his t-shirt (which fully said, "Hello, don't be racist. Thanks.").
As the situation progressed, the server shared a number of follow-up tweets explaining that Lassiter was “roasted” on Facebook before deleting his post. Bryantinak's original tweet has since collected over 100,000 likes.
As the story continued to gain momentum, Bryantinak interfered with a last update. In an act of support, Chowder House decided to buy a non-racist T-shirt for each of its employees.
The support also went beyond the restaurant. Thousands of Twitter users have also commented on the situation, and many have praised the restaurant for its response.
"Your boss is fine. Kudos to all of you, ”wrote one user.
"This thread is everything that is good in this world !! Congratulations to you and your employees !!! Bravo !!" another added.
Others simply criticized Lassiter's criticism and called his behavior "terrible" and "racist".
"Lol ya, because" not being racist "is a controversial statement. I'm glad it is roasted," wrote one commentator.
"That's a lot of words for" I'm racist, "" added another.
Several commentators also asked how they could buy the t-shirt, a question that Bryantinak replied by sharing a link to the Etsy shop where they bought it.

I think I said "final update" but there is more. My bosses order a couple of shirts so everyone can have one in the restaurant. Look forward to a group photo in a few weeks when they come in
