“On Sunday, we fell short of this vision. What began as a civil dialogue between our staff and a Jewish customer escalated into a situation that was shocking and unacceptable,” wrote Farley’s owners, Amy and Chris Hillyard on social media.

Adding, “Events like these strike fear in the Jewish community and perpetuate the rise of anti-Semitism in our community and around the world.”

“We do not tolerate any behavior at Farley’s that makes people feel unwelcome or unsafe. Because this act was not aligned with our values, the employees involved in the incident are no longer employed by Farley’s,” the Hillyard’s posted.

“We are committed to working with community leaders and organizations across the Bay Area to make sure we as owners, and our employees, have the resources, education and skills necessary to peacefully exist in this community. We hope to continue to have the privilege of serving our community and to once again being a coffeehouse where everyone feels welcome,” the company posted in response to the incident.

The video also revealed the employees making anti-Israel comments and accusing the customer of “misgendering” an employee.

The company promised ongoing staff training and expressed commitment to ensuring everyone feels welcome in their coffeehouse.
