Manhattan Fish Market has been accused of denying a mother in Singapore a Mother’s Day promotion offer because the woman has no husband. According to a June 5 Facebook post by Mellissa Seah, the incident occurred at the Manhattan Fish Market outlet at Changi Airport Terminal 1. Seah wrote that she came across a promotion where mothers are entitled to a free Manhattan Fish ‘N Chips with every purchase of a main dish. Staff allegedly said, “Your family is not complete” Seah thought that this was a good deal and wanted to dine at Manhattan Fish Market with her mother. However, when Seah asked about the promotion, the eatery’s personnel allegedly told her that her mother did not qualify for it. The staff allegedly said, “You’re not entitled to this because your family is not complete,” and “The father is missing”. Seah clarified that her family is incomplete “not by choice”, but did not elaborate: Seah also wrote that it was “disappointing that a brand like MFM still has the mindset that a Complete Family Unit is one that is made up of Father, Mother and Child”. She ended her post by saying that she is proud to be part of an incomplete family, and she will never patronise Manhattan Fish Market again.

A powerful explosion rocked the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan on Saturday night, injuring 25 people, shattering windows and forcing the closure of several blocks, the authorities said. None of the injuries were believed to be life-threatening, the Fire Department said on Twitter. The explosion was reported around 8:30 p.m. at 133 West 23rd Street, near the Avenue of the Americas, the department said, adding that there was a report that it emanated from a Dumpster. The authorities were unsure of the cause of the explosion and were exploring various possibilities. Mayor Bill de Blasio said at an 11:15 p.m. news conference that the explosion appeared to have been “an intentional act” but that there was no evidence that terrorism had been involved, although the investigation was continuing. The blast shattered windows in a five-story brownstone building and sent debris into the street, a law enforcement official said. The building is between a church on its eastern side and an apartment building under renovation on its western side. As a precaution, the police and fire personnel were searching trash cans for possible explosive devices, officials said. At 11 p.m., the police said onTwitter that a “possible secondary device” had been found at 27th Street between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue.
