Dublin restaurant Bite, has outraged thousands of Irish hipsters, by banning Instagram pictures being taken of their food while in the premises.
The controversial move is part of a new line up of rules that were released ahead of the restaurant’s new launch next week that also included the banning of British singer/songwriter James Blunt.
But, Hipsters are planning to protest the new rules and regulations that have been set down by the establishment.
Instagram is the life blood of insecure hipsters. Hipsters use the image based social media site to share pictures of their daily lives with people they don’t know, so that they can appear to be living an awesome, alternative life and not confirming to the norm like everyone else. All hipsters do this and it’s an important part of their make-up.
In protest against Bite, these angered hipsters are planning action – of ironic sorts. They will be bringing in old school Polaroid cameras into the restaurant and taking pictures of their food with them. They claim there is nothing in the rules to prevent them from doing so.
They will then take pictures of those Polaroids, on their iPhones and post them onto their Instagram profiles online, sticking it to the man – with an added photo filter to make them extra cool.
Gardaí have been informed about the planned protest and are in talks with organisers ahead of Bite’s launch next week in an effort to ensure that the protest goes off without any serious disturbances or incidents.
