A photo has been circulated on social media depicting a controversial statement displayed at Delta Daiquiris in Delta, Louisiana. The photo showed a hand-written message in the window that said “All Lives Matter”. Several in the community found the statement offensive.
Owner Allen Kitchens Sr. said the statement has been removed. The message was posted without his approval or knowledge.
“I apologize for the behavior of our employee who wrote the message on the drive-thru window at the Daiquiri. This was totally unacceptable. I was unaware that this had occurred and have disciplined this employee. I have been in business for 50 years and have always treated everyone with respect and in a way that I would want to be treated,” Kitchens said.
Late Sunday, all of the signage at Delta Daiquiris was related to conducting business.
