Kohli, his restaurant irk LGBTQIA…

Virat Kohli owns a restaurant chain called One8 Commune whose Zomato listing allegedly put up a tagline saying 'stags are not allowed'

While Team India captain Virat Kohli is taking a break after the disappointing campaign at the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 after giving up the captaincy of India’s T20 team, fresh trouble from an unexpected quarter has engulfed him, much as he has established credentials as a woke who lectures Hindus on firecracker-free Diwali. An interest group (lobby) has alleged that a restaurant chain owned by Kohli, One8 Commune, is biased against the LGBTQ+ community. The called “Yes, We Exist”, said that One8 Commune, with branches in Pune, Delhi and Kolkata, has a Zomato listing that says, “Stags are not allowed.”

“We DM’ed (direct messaged) them 2 weeks ago, got no response. We called the Pune branch, they confirmed that entry is not allowed only for cisgender heterosexual couples or groups of cisgender woman (sic); gay couples or a group of gay men are not allowed; trans women allowed subject to their clothing,” the group wrote in an Instagram post.

The Instagram post by Yes, We Exist said that they didn’t get any response from the Delhi branch of the chain, while the Kolkata branch said “stags are not allowed” despite its Zomato booking page suggesting otherwise.

“Discrimination against LGBTQIA+ guests is common at such fancy restaurants, bars and clubs in India, and Virat Kohli is no exception,” the post said.

In addition, the group said it has emailed Zomato asking if they have ‘attempted to sensitise’ Kohli. Responding to the claims made by ‘Yes, We Exist’, Kohli’s One8 Commune issued a statement on Monday saying it believes in ‘welcoming all people irrespective of their gender and/or preferences’.

“As our name denotes, we have always been inclusive in serving all communities since our inception,” the statement read. “Similar to industry-wide practice (sic) and in conformity with government rules, we obviously have a prohibition of stag entry policy (subject to relaxation) in place so as to ensure a safe and enjoyable environment for our guests.”

However, the woke crowd on social media have called out Kohli on social media and slammed him for the same.

Sangh parivar collected more than Rs 3,000 crores from Hindus as per media reports & gave that amount to a Sarkari Trust & a Sarkari Construction Committee to construct Ram Janma Bhumi Mandir.

Had Central or State Govt sanctioned Govt funds then they would have deserved credit.
