The doorman, who BFMTV calls Damien, was fired after the video went viral, but he assured that the directives came from the “managers” and that he followed “the policy of the establishment”.

The restaurant presented its “apologies” in a statement posted on Instagram. “Manko respects a charter of values, which advocates equality, respect, tolerance and kindness,” he adds.

Manko was launched at the beginning of 2016 by the successful Peruvian chef Gastón Acurio, with the aim of helping to revive the Parisian nightlife thanks to the magic of music hall and Peruvian gastronomy.
