Disappointing response GC. But noted. Abuse of alcohol should not cause the loss of jobs! Rather that consumers that arrive at trauma units 'over the limit' may not be assisted immediately, if the hospital is full. Focus should be on the problem.

Great message @GrootConstantia. Bullies always do their job, trying to cancel anyone with a different view than theirs. The cancel culture and it’s bullies won’t cancel you. Keep doing the good work.

The amount of disagreement and anger in the replies – I’m shocked! You are entitled to your opinion, which is backed by stats and facts.
The bullying and cruelty (and frankly, ignorance) of people responding is insane.

Thank you for your calm message of patience and hope. This is a hard time for us all – across all industries. Sorry about the the vitriol you’re getting from people. They’re angry and traumatized. It’s not you x

What a tone deaf and highly insensitive tweet at a time when the entire hospitality industry is suffering & crumbling. I will go out of my way to ensure I never support your estate going forward #jobssavelives 👋🏻
