Enjoying your meal while racists rant

Sasha Cohen says Zuck is like a restaruant owner who refuses to remove the Nazi who is spewing death threats to minority customers in his place of business:

"The First Amendment says that “Congress shall make no law” abridging freedom of speech, but this does not apply to private businesses. If a neo-Nazi comes goose-stepping into a restaurant and starts threatening other customers and saying he wants to kill Jews, would the restaurant owner be required to serve him an elegant eight-course meal? Of course not. The restaurant owner has every legal right, and, indeed, a moral obligation, to kick the Nazi out. So do Internet companies."

So I ask, if a Nazi starts spewing death threats to minorities in a popular restaurant whilst you're enjoying your lunch and the owner adamantly refuses to do anything about it: Do you continue enjoying your meal? Or do you get up and leave?
