MEXICO : Pena Nieto Investigates Restaurant Snub...That Caused Big Twitter Hubbub.
There's a hot new controversy in play...being stoked by social media...after the daughter of a former top government official got a DF restaurant closed...because it refused to seat her immediately.
Even President Pena Nieto is now involved...asking for an investigation...when it became a trending topic on Twitter#LadyProfeco.
The daughter of Mexico former attorney general...Andrea Benitez Gonzalez...got pissed Friday when the waiter at the Maximo Bistro made her wait.
The next day...inspectors from the consumer department that her father now heads...closed the eatery.
Her father has apologized...calling his daughter's behavior 'inappropriate.'
The restaurant reopened Sunday...but its liquor license was still suspended.
