Lauren Young asks about legality of “Chinese only” resto

  • Lauren Young ranted about discrimination of a Chinese resto in Subic.
  • Netizens shared Young’s dismay over the Chinese-only resto in Subic.

Kapuso actress Lauren Young questioned the legality of a Chinese restaurant in Subic which bore the sign “Only for Chinese Customers”.

In a tweet, Young raised questions on the legality of the restaurant’s sign.

“Is this even legal? (My fave resto in Subic has been sold and this sign is up) I really want to know if business owners are allowed to do this,” she said attaching photo of the resto with the signage.

She also added that if ever she’ll have her own restaurant would it also be legal to put up signages that read, “Only for Filipino Customers” or “Only for dog customers”

“If I had a restaurant am I allowed to put up these signs for example: ‘Only for dog Customers’ ‘Only for Filipino Customers’

Most of the netizens who replied to her tweet shared her sentiments saying it is a result of the government’s submissiveness to China.

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) twitter account replied to the tweet saying formal complaint should be filed with their office.

This is not the first time that a Chinese restaurant was called out for being discriminatory to Filipinos.

In May 2019, DTI ordered the closure of a Chinese Food Park in Las Piñas for not having the necessary documents and permits. The said food park went viral on social media after netizens claimed that the food park caters exclusively to Chinese customers.

Meanwhile, after gaining attention on social media, one netizen posted an updated photo of the restaurant now with different signage.
