Why would you even walk into a restaurant with that kind of name? Shouldn’t that send off red flags in the back of your mind that maybe it might not be a good idea to order from there? I guess not because it definitely didn’t stop one of their customers from consuming one of their burgers.
The customer, who is said to be in his 40’s, was taken out by paramedics just when he halfway finished with his 6,000 calorie burger. Who approved such a high caloric item on a menu and why did the restaurant think it was a good idea to have something like this as an option for their customers anyways? Due to that, the unidentified man suffered cardiac arrest while eating the meal which had been ironically called a “Triple Bypass Burger” at the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas last Saturday.
There is more irony to this story. Apparently if you weigh 350 pounds or more, you eat for free. The chain owner, Jon Basso, who is a former nutritionist, said that the man “could barely talk” and was “sweating and suffering” as tourists were taking photos and videos from the street. Basso went on to state that, “I actually felt horrible for the gentleman because the tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some type of stunt.
Even with our morbid sense of humor, we would never pull a stunt like that.” As you all stood there and watched him suffer a heart attack? What kind of restaurant owner would do something like this? They would rather watch one of their customers die instead of doing something about it?
Well what do you guys think? Do you think this man deserved this knowing what he was getting into or is it the restaurant’s fault for encouraging such deadly habits knowing the persons state in regards to their weight?
