The Facebook pages for the Pho Shack Katy and Sugar Land have been taken down, but before that happened two apologies were posted. The Katy location posted an apology from the team and stated that they had aborted their partnership with Le. The Sugar Land apology was written by Le himself, who constructed the excuse that he’d grow up around people using the N-word casually, and said,” but that stops here .”Tagged : food
