After an employee in a ICA grocery store in northwestern Skåne, Sweden, was assaulted and beaten by immigrants, the grocery store staff decided that the store would be closed the rest of the day on Thursday.
"Closed because of violence against staff by immigrants" wrote the frustrated employees on a note - and now they are described as racists in the mainstream media (MSM) newspapers Aftonbladet and Expressen.
16.20 on Thursday police was called to the ICA store. One of the employees had been beaten by two immigrants in connection with a dispute about cigarettes and was taken to hospital.
The shop staff put up a note on the entrance door where they explained what had happened and urged customers to contact the police about the issue. The note, however, contained the word "blattar", a Swedish slang expression for immigrants, which prompted the left-wing tabloids Expressen and Aftonbladet to point out that the employees were racists.
According to Aftonbladet, who writes exactly where the store is located, the note has been reported to the police as "hate speech".
- I will never put my foot there again, says an African in the area that Aftonbladet has made contact with.
In an email to Aftonbladet, ICA writes that the staff wrote the note in fury over the assault:
"Right after we closed the shop, we put up the note, which was written in anger, and it was just up for a moment."
