There’s usually a perfect time and place for everything, but apparently one Texas restaurant employee felt the perfect time to disrespect the police was while they were eating their food.

A Texas BBQ joint has gone viral after they allegedly blasted N.W.A.’s “Fuck Tha Police” while police officers ate at the restaurant. Deputy Shane Cates took to Facebook to share that he and a few other police officers went to Going’s Barbeque & Steak Co. in Crosby, Texas, near Houston, and while eating his food, Cates noticed that people were looking at them and heard music coming from behind the counter.

He wrote, “The guys in the back were playing a rap song that was saying ‘fuck the police’ over and over.” Cates added that when he walked to where the music was coming from, he saw a 17-year-old washing dishes and singing the song. He says the dishwasher “turned and noticed me standing there and started laughing.” After he was told that the manager wasn’t there, Cates “left with the music still playing and customers looking around.”

Cates returned the next day, only to find that the manager didn’t see a problem with the employee’s behavior, concluding, “This is just wrong in so many ways. I can’t find anything in me that thinks this is ok.” According to reports, the 17-year-old dishwasher has been fired, and his mom told ABC 13 that her son is “embarrassed by it and sorry for what happened. He made a mistake and realizes what he did was wrong. He’s deeply sorry.”

The restaurant has since apologized to the officers in a statement on Facebook.
