Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo dunked over Al Horford and tipped-in the game-winning basket in Milwaukee’s Game 4 victory over the Celtics Sunday. But later in the afternoon, he failed in his pursuit to get seated at a local taco establishment.

The Greek Freak, who dropped 27 points in the win, reportedly waited at the taco restaurant for 10 minutes and wasn’t helped. The inattention prompted him to leave with his girlfriend.

BelAir Cantina apologized for its customer service fail. “We are very sorry we weren’t able to seat Giannis in as timely of a manner as we would have hoped,” the chain restaurant said in a statement, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

While it’s laughable that no restaurant employee noticed the 6-foot-11 man standing near the host stand, it is comforting to know that superstar athletes can go through the same daily annoyances as the rest of us. In our imagination, everybody in Milwaukee would be treating the Greek Freak with incessant adulation after his playoff performance.

But in reality, he can’t even get some tacos. Few things symbolize our equality more than that.
