Lauren Conrad storms out of restaurant

Lauren Conrad stormed out of a restaurant in Mexico in support of same sex couples.

The former 'The Hills' star - who is celebrating her bachelorette party in Cabo San Lucas this weekend ahead of her upcoming nuptials to William Tell - lashed out at beachside eatery The Office on Twitter, accusing it of enforcing homophobic policies, but the manager insists it was "a huge misunderstanding."

After a night out on Thursday (06.19.14), the 28-year-old beauty tweeted: "The Office in Cabo does not allow same sex couples to participate in couple games. Had to walk out. #equality #StopTheHate (sic)."

Her best pal and former co-star Lo Bosworth also tweeted: "If you support #equalityforall don't eat at The Office in Cabo San Lucas (sic)."

But the restaurant's manager Carmen Alucano told PEOPLE.com that the incident was "a huge misunderstanding" and apologized for a "joke" the DJ made while the girls were playing a game in which couples squeeze against each other to burst balloons.

She said: "We'd like to make a public apology. Obviously [the emcee, from an outside company,] didn't mean it to be offensive. It's a huge misunderstanding."

She added: "We have an emcee that comes in on Thursday nights, and we invite all diners to participate in the game.

"We don't care what sexuality [they are]. The only thing we don't allow in the restaurant is smoking. That's the only rule we have."
