By Aaron Humes: A Belmopan bar owner has lost face after having to retract a social media statement in which she appears to go after the Belize Defence Force for their actions in the death of the Guatemalan minor in the adjacency zone on Wednesday.lala chacon post

According to the Reporter newspaper, Lala Chacon Menjivar, owner of La Cabana bar, wrote in her original post in Spanish that the shooter of the child was cowardly. She made further insults and wished that whoever was responsible be made into minced meat by the Guatemalans.

She went on to say that she joins her Guatemalan friends in anger at the scenario, and ended the post with a picture of the Guatemalan flag.

However, the post was quickly removed following negative commentary in response; although it was not quick enough to prevent reposted screen shots of the original post and translation of the original Spanish text.

Responders most strongly reproved Menjivar and patrons of the bar commented that they would no longer go to the establishment and encouraged other Belizeans to do the same.

Menjivar proceeded to post, in English, apologies for her comments, explaining that she acted out of anger. She ended that post with a picture of the Belizean flag.

Having been made aware of the first post, Omar Arzu, founder of Cloud 9 Sounds, a sound system group that plays music at La Cabana on a regular basis, posted that neither himself nor his agents would continue to play music at La Cabana.

Menjivar could not be reached for comment.

    Their is only one reason why lala apologize an that is because she realize the impact it would cause to her business here in Belize. A business which has fed an clothed her. Provided for her an her family.but none of that would be possible without the support of the Belizean people. Now that her true colors are finally revealed, showing that she is a wolf in sheep’s clothing I will never again support her establishment. As a true belizean, a patriot to my country I strongly believe that I speak for the majority of Belizeans on this. Lala pack ur bag an start walking West until u meet the Pacific ocean. Belize have no need of u an your kind.

      i am in strong agreement with you. i am a soldier and i feel outraged to know that some people in the publice have her mentality. we put our lives at risk daily protecting the resources of our country and to know that that witch doesn’t appreciate it pisses me off. i believe that we should send a message and come together for the common good and not support her business any more. her apologies should not be accepted as it is a mere facade to continue reaping the money from our BELIZEAN people pockets.

    Any naturalized Belizean will be Loyal to Belize first and foremost. Even in time to trial and controversy. We know the challenge and danger our BDF endure in the Chiuibul area. If she was loyal to Belize she wouldn’t have been angry at our soldiers. she had shown where her loyalty lies. therefore apology but NOT accepted. Damages done aready.

    Exactly Lynks… I call for a full boycott of anything Guatemala for at minimum 3-6 months… Lock down the borders, stop supporting any and all Guatemalan owned businesses in Belize..

    Once they start to feel the pressure they will start to respect Belize and Belizeans. See how after one a few days the pressure was already felt in Melchor…

    What happens to traitors in other countries? Snakes in the grass, wolves in sheep clothing and people that bite the hand that feeds them should be watched carefully. They can be very dangerous.They should be isolated. There are more like her in Belize I suspect.Showing no love for a country that has given you protection and fed you and clothed you and your family reacting this way should be considered treason and should be treated as such.Belice es de los Beliceños, .FUERA los traidores. Queridos hermanos y hermanas Beliceños, mucho cuidado. Mih dohn seh, Ya dije.
