They are claiming that the that tourists bashed the owners for being asked to not use the GJ washroom.

The management of Gloria Jeans addressed the situation themselves in a live stream where they backed these claims. They suggested that the restaurant’s staff were defending themselves as the family was the one who started abusing them first. They added that they were only following the government’s given SOPs of not allowing more than two people into the washrooms at once. On this, the customers got angry and made a big scene, abusing the employees.
