An Austin restaurant is temporarily closed after owner Eddie Nimibutr made controversial comments concerning the tragic shootings in Newtown, Connecticut. Austin's KEYE talked to Nimibutr, who said he's received death threats over his Facebook posting that began "I'm failing to give a damn about the CT shooting." (Yelpers also got revenge on the restaurant via one star reviews.) Thai Noodle House has been closed since Monday "for fear of retaliation against [Nimibutr] and his employees." He has since apologized for his posting: "I do apologize, because maybe it was a little insensitive to write something like that, right that day the day of the shooting."
