"An Atlanta-based Ikea faced backlash this week after employees and customers said that its menu created for Juneteenth was offensive.

Multiple employees and customers complained that a menu, which included watermelon and fried chicken, was racially insensitive, according to a Monday interview with a local CBS affiliate station.

“You cannot say serving watermelon on Juneteenth is a soul food menu when you don’t even know the history, they used to feed slaves watermelon during the slave time,” an employee who chose not to be identified told the news outlet.

The menu was reportedly circulated to employees in an email ahead of the observation of the Juneteenth holiday on Friday. The email stated that the menu would be served in an effort to “honor and persevere Black Americans,” CBS46 reported."
