A racist comment by an Austin Noodle House owner has caused a firestorm of controversy, with one group demanding a boycott of the restaurant after Eddie Nimibutr responded to the Connecticut school shooting by remarking, “I don’t care if a bunch of white kids got killed.”

Noodle House Owner: I Dont Care if a Bunch of White Kids Got Killed 181212thai

The full comment, posted on Nimibutr’s Facebook page, read, “I’m failing to give a damn about the CT shooting. I don’t care if a bunch of white kids got killed. F**k Post-Racial bullshit. When kids from minority groups get shot, nobody cares. When Israel launched missiles at the school on Gaza, everybody was too busy jerking off. Why should i care about people who dont give a damn about me? Personal responsibility, right?”

Thailand-born Nimibutr’s crass racism prompted a wave of complaints and a campaign to boycott [1] his Thai Noodle House restaurant in Austin, Texas. Users of the Yelp service also flooded his establishment with one star reviews and negative comments.

However, Nimibutr was unrepentant, and followed up by lashing out at his critics with another missive in which he wrote, “If you don’t like me or my opinions, I suggest you to unfriend me and fuck off. I am pretty much sick of some people telling me what to think, how to think, or how to feel today, and if you don’t like my foods, fuck off and eat someplace else.”

Nimibutr has apparently now left Austin to escape the controversy, saying, “I think It’s time for me to get out of this city for awhile for a nice hike down south.”

Staff at the noodle house responded to calls by claiming that Nimibutr was not the owner of the restaurant, but others speculated this was probably an exercise in “damage control”. Nimibutr is listed as the owner in numerous business directories.

In a subsequent Facebook post [2], Nimibutr advocated “gun control” as a necessary response to the tragedy which he had made light of.

A Facebook page [1] which demands a boycott of the restaurant also calls on Nimibutr to apologize for his comments.

After first firing back at his critics, Nimibutr did later relent and issue an apology, posting a message which read, “I truly caught hell these past few days. I am beyond myself with this firestorm. I am truly sorry for the pain I have caused and the things I have said. I didn’t mean to upset anyone of you. I am broken and lost. I am very sorry for the misundertandings I created. I deserved the punishment for the chaos I made. I even walked into church and sat there awhile. wow, 10 years since. I really don’t know where else to turn. All I can say is I am very sorry to you my friends. I don’t know how else to express my sincere apology.”
