The owners of the Tadich Grill, San Francisco's oldest restaurant, are facing allegations of racism from their own daughter.
Terri Upshaw in a Washington Post article claims her parents disowned her decades ago for marrying a black man, the late Oakland Raiders great Gene Upshaw. The controversy has blown up on social media.
The news went viral, with folks Yelping their disdain for the longtime restaurant. The controversy is also causing customers like Alex Lewis, who works nearby, and Patrick Carroll, who's mom is bi-racial, to ditch the restaurant altogether.
"What I know right now, I will never patronize that establishment again," Lewis said of the Tadich Grill.
The controversy comes as Tadich Grill opens a restaurant in Washington, D.C., where Terri Upshaw lives. Published reports said the family is disputing the claim that the issue was about Gene Upshaw's race.
