Two weeks after an employee at the Brooklyn Heights Chipotle raised his arms in a "Don't Shoot" pose to nine NYPD officers stopping in for a bite, the chain is still struggling to move past the incident. Yesterday, it appeared that things had been cleaned up, news sources clarified what happened, and the restaurant posted an apology on Facebook. But, that apology appears to have been deleted rather quickly after some nasty comments were posted in response. Today, Chipotle CEOs Steve Ells and Monty Moran are trying another route. They apologize to the officers in a statement saying:
Above all, we would like to apologize to the officers involved in this incident. We have proudly served law enforcement officers in our restaurants around the country for the last 21 years and we continue to do so every day.
Perhaps, now, everyone can move on.
