Dear Mr. Taffer:
I write regarding the behavior of your fans, Mr. Taffer. In the days since your show aired, Piratz Tavern has been the target of abuse from people nationwide who have never been to the establishment. They are flooding Yelp.com with fake one-star reviews, causing tangible harm to the reputation of Piratz Tavern. On Facebook I have seen insulting, abusive and racist comments targeted at Piratz Tavern staff and customers. I have seen wishes of injury and violence. I have seen death threats.
This is neither appropriate nor acceptable, sir. I appeal to your humanity and common decency, and ask that you make a statement your fans to let them know that this behavior is unbecoming of civilized people and that you do not approve of it.
I have no doubt that, having been informed of the situation, you will not delay in addressing it. And if you ever return to Piratz Tavern in the future, sir, I will personally treat you to a round of grog.
