3 Parrots Taco Shop of San Angelo has quite a few upset customers on social media because of a recent post.
What may have been a completely innocent promotion has now turned ugly in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
The Facebook post (below) promotes the biggest hurricane to hit San Angelo along with the hashtag #sorryharvey and that has upset quite a few people - myself included. Hurricane Harvey has been extremely devastating, so making jokes in light of such a tragedy seems to be in poor taste (in my opinion).
Like I stated above, it may have been completely innocent but it definitely hits close to home with many of us. So while my family endures flooding of catastrophic proportions, there are those who think this is something to laugh at.
The fact that they actually used that hashtag shows a lack of empathy. Then, the fact that they took it a step further only solidifies their lack of empathy.
Mine is only one man's opinion, so I'd like to hear what you think? Am I overreacting?
