A reader reported around 10:45pm:

“MPD officer I spoke with said there was a carjacking on H St that resulted in a police pursuit and ended with a crash in the 600 block of NC Ave. The suspect then got out, was pursued on foot and apprehended in the general vicinity of Bullfrog Bagels (per the pic… sorry I couldn’t get closer). All roads in the triangle between C, NC and 7th are taped off at the moment and detectives are wandering around Eastern Market looking for something.”

Multiple readers sent in this Medium post by Pierrea Naketa – A Colorist, Sexist Night in D.C.’s CopyCat Co..

One reader writes:

“From the way I interpreted the article, the author’s problem isn’t with the other woman getting kicked out, it’s with how the woman was kicked out. The owner responds in the comments and it’s pretty unprofessional how he doubles down instead of apologizing.

“The bartender’s hostility was steadily increasing. He launched into a tirade screaming multiple times “YOU BLACK AND YOU UGLY BITCH! YOU BLACK AS F*** AND YOU UGLY!”

If that woman was really banned from Copycat, that’s fine. But you ask someone to leave without resorting to racist and sexist slurs. I’ve had great experiences at Copycat, but wouldn’t feel comfortable going back to a place where management thinks it’s acceptable to call women that.”

In the comments, CopyCat’s owner Devin Gong replied:

“I find it interesting that we failed to mention that the women we kicked out was banned from the establishment due to her punching one of my line cooks in the face last time she was in and we ended up calling the cops and established the ban.

Look, I didn’t handle it correctly because I was emotional and felt that after all these years of supporting minorities, and as a immigrant myself, it was insulting to accuse Copycat being racist. Read More
