Le restaurant Pho King Bon prétend être un hommage à la culture vietnamienne, mais emploie des jeux de mots vulgaires et dégradants dans son nom et son menu, dont "Lichi Mwa Lku," "Pho Kyu," "Pho Kme," et "PhoKit," faisant de notre langue l'objet de moqueries. De plus, il suggère à ses clients de prononcer le plat classique bún thịt nướng comme "bonne tite noune," cela va sans dire que cette prononciation est non seulement incorrecte, mais aussi de mauvais goût. Encore pire, un des articles du menu est nommé "Viet Kong," en référence au Việt Cộng et à la Guerre du Vietnam. Ceci est extrêmement insensible envers toutes les personnes qui ont vécu les atrocités de la guerre et du régime autoritaire au Vietnam.

Je demande donc que ce restaurant retire ces noms insultants et irrespectueux, en plus de présenter des excuses officielles à la communauté vietnamienne.

Entre-temps, je vous appelle à boycotter cet établissement, exprimer vos préoccupations sur Avis Google ou sur leur page Facebook et signer cette pétition.

Merci, cám ơn.

Pho King Bon Restaurant claims to be an homage to Vietnamese culture, but uses vulgar and degrading puns in its name and menu, such as "Lichi Mwa Lku" (a misspelling of the French phrase for "lick my *ss"), "Pho Kyu," "Pho Kme," and "PhoKit," making our language the butt of a joke. Furthermore, the restaurant tells its clients that the classic dish bún thịt nướng is pronounced as "bonne tite noune," which is slang for "good little p*ssy." It goes without saying that this pronunciation is incorrect, but also tasteless. Even worse, one of the items on the menu is called "Viet Kong," as a reference to the Việt Cộng and the Vietnam War. This is extremely insensitive towards the people who have faced the atrocities of the war and of the authoritarian government in Vietnam.

I ask that the restaurant removes these insulting and disrespectful names, in addition to formally apologizing to the Vietnamese community.

In the meantime, I urge you all to boycott this establishment, voice your concerns on Google Reviews or on their Facebook Page, and sign this petition.

Thank you, cám ơn.
