True Kitchen owner tells ‘twerking’ women to ‘get the f–k’ out

Keep that body-oddy-oddy seated, sis!

Butter pecan waffles won’t include a aspect of bouncing booty cheeks for diners at Dallas eatery TRUE Kitchen + Kocktails — a dogged decree mandated by owner Kevin Kelley in now-viral footage of his indignant Sunday afternoon anti-twerking tackle. The #twerkgate clip had greater than 2.3 million views as of Monday afternoon.

“All this twerking s–t, do not deliver it right here as a result of we’re a restaurant,” an apparently incensed Kelley says, scolding feminine patrons for standing on the furnishings of his institution and jiggling their junk-in-the-trunk to songs like Megan Thee Stallion’s “Body” and Lil Ronny MothaF’s “Circle (Throw Dat A-s In A Circle).”

Adding an additional sprint of taste to the TRUE’s lounge-like ambiance, each shake-inciting tracks, amongst others, had been performed by the venue’s in-house DJ for the clients’ leisure. Tragically, nevertheless, Kelley was clearly not amused.

“If you wanna do it, get the f–okay out my restaurant,” the restauranteur continues in his rebuke of the rump shakers, per video of the incident. “Don’t do it once more. I do not need to hear it should you do not prefer it, get out as a result of I do not want your cash.”

Assiduous in his reproach of the booty-shaking, Kelly — an African-American man — explains his upset, saying he, “…invested some huge cash into shopping for this constructing, into growing this idea so black folks can have someplace good to go to,” and insists twerking is a distasteful illustration of “the tradition.”

Naturally, the all-mighty digital delegation is weighing-in with mixed opinions on the incident, with one Twitter commentator saying: “that man actually jeopardized his enterprise to scold black women for twerking all as a result of he allowed the dj to play a-s shaking music…” and others arguing: “Y’all would not have been twerking at a white institution.”

Since going viral, Kelley released a formal statement relating to the situation through social media, saying: “There had been three tables that had been spoken to about twerking. [They] had been approached very politely lower than 10 minutes earlier than [the incident]. The final younger girl determined to stand in our sales space seats, place her fingers in opposition to the glass home windows and begin twerking on the glass.”

He ended, “No track performed is an excuse to stand on our furnishings and do what this girl did…TRUE might be for some and never all and that’s okay.”

Kevin Kelley didn’t instantly reply to the Post’s request for feedback.
