The Cannoli Scandal:
The owner of Cannoli, Uzma Chaudhry and Dia Haider came under hot water after sharing a video on social media. In the video, the owners asked the manager of the restaurant about his English language skills. At first, everything seems fine, but things took a drastic turn after a few minutes.
The two women were seen bullying and harassing their manager. Awais, who has taken English classes for one year, wasn’t speaking the language fluently. The owners made fun of his efforts and shared the humiliating video on social media.
As soon as the video went viral, the restaurant deleted it, but netizens were quick to reshare it.
