Olive Garden Kicks Out Uniformed Officer Celebrating His Birthday

Kansas City Police Officer Michael Holsworth was asked to leave an Olive Garden restaurant while waiting for his family on his birthday. The employee said, "Sir, we don't allow guns in here," despite Holsworth being in full police uniform and on duty. Holsworth shared his experience on social media, which caused outrage in the community. Olive Garden's president personally apologized to Holsworth, and the company issued a statement saying they love serving law enforcement and it was all a misunderstanding. However, some believe that the incident was not because Holsworth was armed but because he was a cop, making it a political statement by the restaurant's employee.
