Eileen Rinaldi, owner of Ritual Coffee Roasters, has fired her husband soon after he utilised a racial slur versus a Black gentleman, according to the San Francisco Chronicle (SFGATE and the San Francisco Chronicle are both of those owned by Hearst but function independently of one particular one more). The incident happened outside of the company’s warehouse on 17th Avenue in late Could.
“He reported to me that he had a verbal altercation in excess of a parking area whilst controlling a building venture,” wrote Eileen Rinaldi in an Instagram article about her partner, John Rinaldi. “He mentioned that in the course of the altercation, an particular person termed John a racial epithet. John reported he then created the horrible miscalculation of repeating the racial slur again to the unique, some thing that he never should have completed. This incident is extremely upsetting to me. Though he experienced only this freelance construction part at Ritual in the previous calendar year, I’m deeply regretful for enabling John to oversee this job or to do any operate with Ritual.”
