YouTuber Sham Idrees and his wife Queen Froggy recently called out Canadian cafe chain Demetres on social media. The couple claimed that they were refused service because of their ‘faith.’ The two have posted videos on Instagram in which they confronted the cafe staff for their Islamophobic behavior. The cafe, however, has denied the claims.
Idrees, taking to IG, talked about the experience. He posted a video that wasn’t as clear and the audio was mostly cropped. Sham also mentioned that the staff called the police to ‘kick’ them out of the cafe. He wrote, ‘The racist servers told us they will not serve people of our kind. My wife and family members included hijabis.
Saher, a.k.a Queen Froggy, also posted her statement on IG. She said in the video that they were told to leave the cafe for being Muslims. She expressed how heart broken she was. Moreover, she requested her fans to go to Google Maps and give a 1 star review to the cafe.
After Sham and Froggy’s claims, Demetres also shared their side of the story. They denied all of the claims and said that it was a ‘misunderstanding’ and that too because of the sitting arrangements because of COVID-19.
The public however, is not buying Sham’s story. They believe that there are many loopholes in the story. They asked the YouTuber to post a complete version of the audio without editing it.
Many individuals have posted proves calling Idrees’ story ‘fake.’ Other Muslims or Hijabis who have actually been to the cafe say that they haven’t experienced anything similar.
A Hijabi woman who was present at the time of the incident also commented on the post.
