A viral video of Islamabad’s Cannoli by Cafe Soul house owners has sparked an issue as the 2 house owners are seen making enjoyable of their supervisor for not figuring out the English language fluently.
In a viral video, the 2 ladies could be seen ridiculing their supervisor over his incapability to talk English.
The two ladies elaborated how their supervisor, Awais has been working with them for 9 years and has taken three English language programs all through that length. Then they requested him to introduce himself, which he did. Yet regardless of him being an in a position communicator, Uzma and Thea felt his fluency wasn’t as much as the bar.
“I’ve been working for you for the final 9 years”, he responded. Adding to his reply the ladies mentioned he was the primary rent once they began the café Soul.
She went on to ask, “what number of lessons have you ever been taken to be taught the English language?” The supervisor replied that he took three programs; every course is for six months.
The proprietor, laughing hilariously on the scenario, then requested Awais to introduce himself in English, to which he replied, with fumbling, “my title is Awais Aftab and I job right here supervisor, and that is it.”
Reacting to the reply, the primary girl mentioned, “Shabash” whereas the opposite continued, “that is our supervisor who’s been working with us for the final 9 years and that is the gorgeous English he speaks.”
The video was even posted on the Cannoli Cafe Soul Instagram page but later deleted, perhaps due to the public backlash.
People have called out the behavior as elitist, tone-deaf, and plain prejudicial. Especially given the comment about Awais’ salary and implying that he didn’t do his job right just because he isn’t fluent in a non-native language.
While one was persistently mocking the manager, the other woman ended the clip by saying ‘this is what we paid you for.’
After receiving heavy criticism from the Netizens, the owners of the Canoli Cafe have issued an apology. The official page Of Canoli took to Instagram and said,”We are saddened and appalled by the reaction of the people, how they have misconstrued our banter with a team member. This video depicts the gup shup between us as a team, and is never meant or taken in a hurtful or negative way.”
“If anyone was hurt or offended we apologise, however that was never our intention. We are not required to prove or defend ourselves as kind employers. Our team has been with us for a decade, that should speak for itself. We are proud Pakistanis who love our language and our culture.”
