Black Squirrel owner defends blog post
Updated 1 p.m., Jan. 13
Black Squirrel owner Tom Knott has responded to a Twitter backlash about a blog post on his restaurant's website.
In an e-mail to The Post, he wrote that the blog post "has taken on a life of its own" in ways he hadn't meant.
"I merely broached the issue of comedic taste," Knott wrote. "I liken the taste issue to those comics who used to crack on our city when it was the nation's murder capital a generation ago."
(Original post, Jan. 12):
The Black Squirrel, an Adams Morgan bar, is taking Twitter flack for a blog post on its web site that says illegal immigrants come to the U.S. "to ply their illicit trades, take up with gangs and live in the shadow of polite society."
No author is listed on the blog posting, but some angry tweeters in the Washington area are commenting on the post. The Post has a call into the bar owners; we'll keep you informed.
What's your take on the blog posting?
