Cafe Cannoli owners have issued an apology statement on Thursday after facing social media outrage.

The restaurant owner received massive criticism on social media after a video clip went viral on a microblogging site.

The netizens were irked by owners of a high-end restaurant Cafe Cannoli located in Islamabad for mocking their manager for his inability to speak English.

 

The statement issued by the eatery on its official Instagram said: “We are saddened and appalled by the reaction of the people, how they have misconstrued our banter with a team member.

This video depicts the gup shup between us as a team and is never meant or taken in a hurtful or negative way. If anyone was hurt or offended we apologise, however that was never our intention.

“We are not required to prove or defend ourselves as kind employers. Our team has been with us for a decade, that should speak for itself.

“We are proud Pakistanis who love our language and our culture”.
