Montreal Restaurant Makes Muslim Joke

Another Montreal restaurant has shown poor judgment on social media. The perpetrator this time is Luca e Franco, a "chic bistro" and avid ladies' night promoter in the Plateau.

The link jumps to a video of two niqab-clad women eating spaghetti, sloppily, in front of a bemused onlooker.

The restaurant seems unaware that the clip originates from 3 Non-Blondes, a Candid Camera style show that had a short run on BBC Three in 2003. The video has duped enough people over the last decade, apparently, to warrant a special entry on this hoax debunker site.

ADDENDUM: Luca e Franco has since deleted the tweet and Facebook post in question.
