Mexican Federal Attorney General Humberto Benitez Trevino had to issue an embarrassing apology for “the inappropriate behavior of [his] daughter Andrea.” She threw a temper tantrum after Maximo Bistro in Mexico City asked her to wait for a table because she didn’t have a reservation. Only a few hours after the incident, official inspectors invaded the restaurant and posted “suspended” signs. “She exaggerated the situation and the officials of the Attorney General’s Office for Consumer Protection, which I head, overreacted because it was my daughter,” Benitez Trevino explained. “Immediately upon hearing of the situation, I ordered the raid suspended, to avoid any excesses.” Tsk-tsk.
