…A spokeswoman for TGI Friday’s insisted that earlier Mobile Mistletoe events in Long Island and Texas incurred no casualties and dismissed concerns about further injuries — even from the much larger, 23-inch drone sporting six uncovered propellers — saying that customers will stay clear of the whirling, five-inch blades.
“We do not let consumers touch it,” said Frances Karkosak, a spokeswoman for the restaurant chain.
C’mon – don’t fly drones inside 🙁
