A California diner is facing backlash after denying service to three on-duty police officers.

In an Instagram post on Saturday, the Hilda and Jesse Restaurant in San Francisco said the presence of the officers’ weapons made employees feel uncomfortable and asked them to leave. The restaurant’s owner said the decision had nothing to do with the fact that they were police officers, reiterating it was only about them carrying weapons.

However, residents disagreed and said the officers shouldn’t have been turned away, even though they understand some may have a different view on the situation.

The restaurant said they respect the San Francisco Police Department. In addition, they said they welcome them in when they’re off duty and not carrying weapons.
