Instead of merely accepting the discrimination she faced, she bravely took to Facebook to share about the incident. The outrage then quickly spread, with many activists calling to boycott the restaurant as well as leave negative reviews on restaurant review sites such as Facebook, Zomato and Google Plus.
The boycotts and activities are arranged both in a "virtual event" as well as in a meeting on Friday the 19th in front of the restaurant.
