shocked customer was horrified to find a racist poster on display at his local JD Wetherspoon – telling Muslims to ‘get the f**k out of our countries’
A shocked customer was horrified to find a racist poster on display at his local J.D. Wetherspoon – telling Muslims to ‘get the f**k out of our countries’.
The hate-filled sign was displayed earlier this week on the family pub’s noticeboard in Feltham, Middlesex.
A regular to The Moon on the Square went in for lunch with a Muslim colleague and was disgusted to see the offensive material.
The A4 print out features WW1 recruitment artwork and claims to be supported by The Infidel Brotherhood.
The 28-year-old said: “I was absolutely disturbed to see this vile poster on display in my local pub, let alone in the biggest pub chain in the UK.
“I only popped in for lunch which a friend from work who happened to be a Muslim, but we were so upset by it we were forced to leave.
“It is disgraceful that J.D. Wetherspoon pubs are allowing this anti-Muslim propaganda to be displayed – I’d hate for any Muslim to think all British people are racists because of this.”
The customer entered the pub on August 20 at 1pm and immediately noticed the offensive poster.
He said: “Just as we sat down inside the pub, I noticed the sign a few tables away from us.
“My friend, who is a Muslim, didn’t say anything but I could see he was highly uncomfortable.
“We only had thirty minutes for lunch, but were both so angry that we got up and left before having our sandwiches.”
The poster features a drawing of war recruitment hero Lord Kitchener.
It read: “MUSLIMS. Are you unhappy with our countries? Are you offended by our culture? Would you prefer to live under sharia law?
“Then we have a simple solution for you.
“Get the f**k out of our countries and go back to the monstrous s**tholes you came from.
“You can live under Muslim rule there and enjoy it as much as you like.”
The poster, which was pinned up on a notice board apparently by a customer, appears to have been signed by ‘The Infidel Brotherhood.’
The customer added: “I’ll never go back to one of their pubs ever again. They should have employees making sure racist propaganda like this will not be tolerated in this country.”
A spokesperson for the massive pub chain have apologised for the racist poster.
In a statement they said: “A poster was displayed on the notice board at The Moon on the Square, by a customer at the pub, without the knowledge of the pub staff.
“As soon as this came to light, staff immediately removed the discriminatory material.
“The customer notice board, which is regularly checked and monitored by staff, has now been completely cleared of all material, whatever the content.
“The Moon on the Square is a community pub, proud of its diverse customer base, and has always been fully committed to operating in a non-discriminatory way.”
