Operators of a Chaska-based Halloween attraction are apologizing for a Facebook post targeting Somali customers.
A Facebook message from Scream Town owner to staff said the venue would have a "zero tolerance policy with Somalis."
Following backlash, owner Matt Dunn told KARE it was a "poorly written memo."
An apology posted on the Scream Town Facebook page said the first post stemmed from an incident last weekend involving a group of people who were removed from the attraction after being disruptive. The apology said the message inappropriately characterized Somali-Americans.
"We apologize for any posts that were generalizing," the message said.
In the wake of the incident, the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has asked the Minnesota Department of Human Rights to investigate whether Scream Town is targeting Somali-Americans for increased scrutiny or other policies.
