Brooklyn restaurant takes down Trump photo after complaints

NEW YORK (AP) — The owners of a German restaurant in New York have taken down an autographed photo of Donald Trump because they say it was hurting the business.

Schnitzel Haus owners Fred and Amber Urban say the photo of the Republican presidential nominee had been there since the restaurant opened in 2007. The Urbans were friends with Trump's head of security at the time and they say Trump dropped by to wish them good luck. He sent an autographed photo the next day.

The photo is a topic among online reviews on Yelp, with diners saying they were uncomfortable or offended.  Most of the comments on the original article about the photo, in The Brooklyn Daily, thought the issue was ridiculous and that diners would not care about the photo.

Fred Urban says on Facebook that some people have canceled reservations over the photo, while others want to take selfies with it.
