Fighting irony

TEWWG-VLGKJY

Why is Tea Cake's role in the fight at Mrs. Turner's restaurant ironic?

A

Tea Cake himself was one of the drunk rabble rousers, but he was feigning being sober to get on Mrs. Turner's good side.

B

Mrs. Turner hates Tea Cake, but Tea Cake is the person who ended up behaving heroically and getting the drunkards out of the restaurant.

C

Tea Cake tried to get the drunk men out of the restaurant to win favor with Mrs. Turner, but he ended up making it worse and further angering her.

D

Tea Cake is the cause of much of the discord that led to the fight, but he is the one who helps Mrs. Turner rebuild her business.

E

Tea Cake's skin is darker than the skin of the other men, but they end up displeasing Mrs. Turner even more than Tea Cake.
