Should You Twerk At Brunch? TRUE Kitchen’s Owner Tells Patrons to “Get The F**K Out” For Dancing

No twerking allowed!


A restaurant in Dallas, Texas has been the conversation of Black Twitter all week after a video of the owner yelling at Black women hit social media.


The women were reportedly dancing on the furniture and twerking when the restaurant owner, Kevin Kelley approached them.


“I invested a lot of money into buying this building, into developing this concept so Black people could have somewhere nice to go,” Kelly said. He began to talk down on the women, telling them to take their twerking to other establishments.

“I want em to show respect for themselves for how they carry themselves here, so how can I tell the men to respect themselves and you guys are twerking ass here,” he continued. “If you want to do it, f**k out of my restaurant.


According to the Dallas Morning News, True Kitchen + Kocktails is an “elevated comfort food” restaurant and in the video, Kelly reiterated he was running just that — a restaurant, not a club.


Of course, the Internet went crazy with memes and videos.

Initially, TRUE Kitchen went to Instagram to tell their side of the story, but it has since been deleted.


“We don’t see this at white establishment and families who dine at TRUE want to enjoy music and food without seeing this behavior here,” read the statement. The statement continued, saying “no matter what music is playing, there is never an excuse for that kind of behavior.” It also included how the 4-month old business prides itself in supporting the Black community, however, Black Twitter was not sold!


“Lmao the root of the issue is that on top of how unprofessional True Kitchen already was, the manager going off like that just made it 100x worse,” said the tweet. “The twerking doesn’t even matter in the grand scheme of things.”



Others pointed out how the restaurant, which “prides itself on not being the club,” is selling party packages for New Year’s Eve. “True kitchen is charging $10,000 for a section on New Years’. 10 GRAND. PEEP THE TRUE NIGHT CLUB!!,” read the tweet.


Tell us what you think, could the owner have handled the situation better? Lastly, have you ever twerked at brunch? We wanna know.
