In an opinion piece in The Washington Post on Thursday, James Alefantis, the owner of Comet Ping Pong, said the conspiracy theory about Democrats running a child-sex slavery ring from the restaurant threw the lives of everyone connected with the shop into chaos.

But even after a North Carolina man investigating the rumors fired an assault weapon in the shop, Alefantis says workers and customers pulled together to peacefully confront hateful messages from so-called investigators and protesters.

Alefantis says: “Responsibility, community, love, family, truth and ping-pong. The best ingredients still make the best pizza every time.”
