Masturbating man shouted antisemitic comments at dinner guests, says Amsterdam cafe
Patrons of the Boi Boi restaurant in Amsterdam had quite a shock during the dinner service on New Year's Day when a man allegedly started masturbating in front of the glass while shouting antisemitic insults in front of one of the cafe's windows. The scene unfolded on the Dapperstraat in the eastern district of the city at about 9:15 p.m. when the man started pounding on the glass.
Ons restaurant is op 1/1 ook lastig gevallen door “kankerjoden horen hier niet, moslims zijn sterker en vieze kloteflikkers” roepende moslim. Daarna trok hij zich af. #hacarmel dit is niet oke! pic.twitter.com/8WeQm8poMJ
According to one of the owners, Richard Derks, he also started shouting sever slurs at the dinner clients, such as "cancer Jews" and "dirty faggots". Dutch curses often include diseases as a way of making the phrases particularly insulting in that language. He also shouted, "Muslims are stronger," Derks stated.
The video taken by the restaurant's security cameras then appears to show the man taking out his penis and possibly masturbating in front of the guests before quickly walking away. Derks suspected the man was drunk, he told Het Parool
Ik tweet dit maar vast, want maandag mogen we aangifte komen doen over wat er 1/1 gebeurde. Mochten we voor die tijd al shit hebben, dan was het iig in the open. Amsterdam. Dit is de meneer: pic.twitter.com/YGvejfnhbJ
As of Wednesday the restaurant had not filed a formal complaint with police, but they have a week to do so, Derks remarked on Twitter.
It is not the first time that the Boi Boi faced problems, Derks said. On May 21 last year a surveillance camera was snatched away from the facade. Derks said issues crop up because of the restaurant's position at a busy pedestrian intersection.
