MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations is calling for Red Lobster to issue a written apology to a Muslim family that says they were discriminated against at the Rochester location.
The Muslim civil liberties group says the family recently visited the Rochester restaurant to break their fast one night during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
CAIR-MN says it’s asking Red Lobster for a written apology to the family and compensation for discriminatory treatment, which will be donated to a charity.
A manager who answered the phone Wednesday at the Rochester Red Lobster said she didn’t know about any discrimination at the restaurant.
She added that the location’s management team had recently been replaced and she was called up from Illinois.
