A new local restaurant at the centre of a controversy involving the future of a bowling green and club claims that its Facebook page has been hacked, after an offensive status appeared to have been posted by the page this morning.
King Khan bar & restaurant at the old King George V pub on Bristol Road, Northfield, opened just before Christmas. The opening was greeted with a mixed reception from local residents with some pleased to try it but others vowed to boycott it following a dispute between the owner and the King George V Bowling Club, which occupied the bowling green on the site.
With the owner and club unable to reach a resolution, the bowling club have now moved off site.
Many have tried the restaurant with plenty of favourable reviews on their Facebook page. However, many have also posted negative comments and a Facebook page Boycott Kings Khans Until KGV get their bowling club back appeared.
This morning a status appeared on the restaurant’s page reading: ” F*** THE LOCAL COMMUNITY, WE AT KING KHAN’S ARE HERE TO STAY!!! F*** THE BOWLS, 80 YEARS?? FREELOADING B*******!!”
A subsequent status from the page says that the account has been hacked and the page will be deleted and police will be informed.
King Khan’s has been contacted for further comment.
