File under “Cafe Owners Behaving Badly.”
I have no patience with cafe operators (or any business owners, for that matter) who don’t pay their staff on time. That has to be priority one. But if his former employees are to be believed, Rob Shelton of Alexandria, VA’s Killer E.S.P. also treats his staff inappropriately, and may or may not have used the business’ social media accounts to push conspiracy theories and views some consider racist.
Shelton claims someone else must have made the offending posts, though staff point out the language matches things he’s said in person and on his own accounts. He’s also accused of unwanted physical contact and comments about staff’s physical appearance.
Details can be found at Washingtonian magazine.
