Eviscerates a Kansas City bar Jackson Mahomes instantly apologizes for being the worst since the internet stinks.
Jackson Mahomes, the younger brother of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, has made headlines once again for being… well, Jackson Mahomes, which is code for “being totally obnoxious on the internet.”
He seems to be actively attempting to ruin local companies when he is not throwing water on opposition fans’ heads or dancing on the Sean Taylor monument for Tik Tok views. Over the weekend, he was enraged by the downtown Kansas City pub SoT, which seems to be a really nice venue based on Google evaluations.
Jackson disagreed, posting on his Instagram story that the restaurant did not treat him well, or at least not in the way he anticipated to be treated. “The service is really bad, and the waitresses are extremely nasty,” Mahomes stated in a now-deleted video to his 255,000-plus followers.
Despite being blasted on social media by Mahomes’ supporters, SoT chose to respond by publishing a “apology” that served as an extreme evisceration of Mahomes on the bar’s Facebook page. Enjoy:
Today, there is a lot of buzz on social media about a recent visit made to us by a disgruntled customer. Because this individual has a large number of followers on social media, we cannot ignore it.
Power is defined by one’s voice, reach, and influence. In our situation, as with many locally held companies, the influence of a few social media stars may make or destroy the firm. This gives these folks the ability to have an impact on our lives.
There are people who have risen to prominence by being responsible, well-informed, upbeat, and honest.
There are also some who have amassed a following by being the polar opposite.
Having stated that, we must express our regrets.
We apologize for establishing limits that you attempted to disregard. People who have unearned status and a feeling of entitlement often believe they are above the rules and may lash out at the person implementing them.
We regret that we were unable to accommodate your huge party. As you may have seen, our bar is rather tiny.
We are sad that you have the reach that you have, or that you believe you have, and that instead of utilizing it for anything constructive, you chose to destroy a tiny company.
We made it through a worldwide epidemic, and we’ll make it through your ego.
We’re sorry you didn’t come out to us before turning to social media, but that’s something we’d expect from a mature and logical person, not someone who throws water on fans and dances on the monuments of sadly lost individuals for TikTok prestige.
We were not born into a lot more brilliant and renowned family, but we would like to believe that if we had that much luck, we would utilize our influence in more responsible ways.
We hope our apologies find you in good health.
That was a SMACKDOWN, to say the least. And, what’s more, none of it seems to be incorrect? Whoever wrote this epic “apology” at SoT properly put out what most rational-thinking people already believed about Jackson Mahomes. It’s one of the best mic drops you’ll ever see on the internet, and anybody who isn’t a Jackson Mahomes fan (I can’t believe such people exist) would probably nod and agree with every sentence.
BUT, SoT briefly forgot they were in one of those pesky “the customer is always right” businesses, despite the fact that the customer in question was almost certainly completely wrong. Naturally, after a slew of further “backlash,” or online comments we all bow to for some reason, SoT erased the initial apology and replaced it with a weaker one. Part 1 billion: The internet is the absolute worst.
It’s time to talk…once again.
We issued a “apology” yesterday that was far from genuine. SoT’s crew is dedicated to offering the finest experience possible to every visitor that passes through our doors, while also treating them with respect and humility. We fell short of their expectations yesterday.
Social media can be used in a variety of ways, and our team used it yesterday to personally attack and question the character of someone we do not directly know. We handled the matter incorrectly, despite the fact that there were other options.
We want everyone to know that we recognize our faults in this scenario, and that although though we failed to fulfill our own–and many of our followers’–expectations with our social media presence yesterday, we pledge to do better in the future. To improve. To pause before acting. Most importantly, instead of being argumentative and separating the community we love, we want to utilize our following to bring it together. All we can do is strive to be better than the day before.
So, kudos to SoT for being the greater man here, but no one would have faulted them if they had kept the initial “apology” up indefinitely. To be honest, they may have gained more business, and they most likely will continue to do so. One could argue that Jackson Mahomes, as an insufferable internet personality, gave this restaurant more publicity than it could have imagined, but that would be a compliment to Jackson Mahomes, which one cannot stomach.
