A Mississippi restaurant owner who allegedly posted a racially inflammatory Facebook post says he’s the real victim.
Scott Brennan, co-owner of Coop Deville restaurant in Hattiesburg, wrote: “I hate n******. I wish they will all die and go to hell. Especially these mean black b****** with their million dollars hair due.”
Or did he? That “hair due” in the last line suggests an illiterate local yokel, redneck rube, but was it Brennan?

Brennan, who took down the offensive posting, said it was published by an angry friend. The restauranteur says he would never post such a thing about blacks.
“I employ them, I date them, I have them as roommates. I don’t feel that way about people,” Brennan said.
Brennan told FOX 8 that his friend posted the nasty Facebook message after a business deal between the two men went south.
“He has in the past posted some things on Facebook,” Brennan added.
Brennan says thanks to his vindictive friend, he’s lost everything.
“I don’t have a job anymore. I’ve lost my job, and I don’t have a home. I have nothing,” Brennan said.
