This lady got kicked out of a Methodist church because they thought the cilantro she brought for her soup was marijuana

Nov 23rd

Okay, what do you even do if you're this lady?

Ashley Antiveros is just over here trying to share her delicious Mexican soup with her fellow churchgoers, some of whom happen to be inmates.

But nope, they really thought the cilantro, a garnish for the soup, was a bag of weed.

Here's some video for you:

So not only did they kick her out of the church at Redemption United Methodist in Oklahoma City, but they kept her food!

Here's a little bit of an explanation for you:

The church is apparently disputing her version of what happened during the incident, saying that church members were following Department of Corrections policy they must abide by when they have inmates at their services.

In Antiveros, video she is heard explaining to church members that what they thought was marijuana was garnish meant for menudo, a traditional Mexican dish she brought to the church to share with her sister, an inmate attending the worship service. At several different points in the video, she is heard telling church members that they have mistaken the herbs meant for the meal for marijuana.

So, they're just being cautious. But still, smell the coriander, bro!

And get this:

At least one church member featured in the video told Antiveros that she could call the police if she wanted her food back.

Antiveros said church members also said they would call police on her.

Yikes!

In case you're curious, here's a menudo recipe for you [you can replace the cow stomach with pork]:

Notice: There's not any marijuana in the recipe.
