A St. Louis woman claims she was racially profiled at an Independence Applebee's when, she says, she and a friend were accused of leaving without paying their bill during a previous visit.

Applebee's says three employees were fired as a result, adding it is temporarily closing the eatery involved. In a statement, the chain says, "We recognize the hurt and pain caused by the recent incident at an Applebee's restaurant in Independence, Mo.
We very much regret this occurred and sincerely apologize to our guests and community. After an internal investigation and in-line with our values, the franchisee terminated the manager, server and another employee involved in the incident. We do not tolerate racism, bigotry or harassment of any nature, and we have taken additional steps to close the restaurant at this time in order for the team there to regroup, reflect, learn and
growfrom this. We are reaching out to the guests involved to apologize directly. We know rebuilding trust with those affected by the incident will take time, and we look forward to finding resolution in the coming days."

About an hour into their meal, members of the restaurant's staff accused the women of leaving without paying their bill the night before, Brison says. Both women denied the allegations and claimed that they were being accused because of their skin color."Especially in Black History Month, black people cannot continue to be treated this way," Brison said in her post. "After being mocked, humiliated, and embarrassed we were asked to pay for our food, leave, and not come back." E/Q


Applebees appears to have done an immediate grovel and ass licking session but of course that is just the start. I think it has to do with admitting guilt by apologizing. Let this be a lesson to other business owners, dare them to sue. They probably dont have the money for it and it has to stop somewhere.

There is more of the tirade in the link but my guess is Miss Thang is gonna be ownin herself some Applebees, you wait and see, her poutrage is epic, they accused her of stealing chicken....CHICKEN!!!!!

1. They lost me when they pulled the 'racial profiling' bullshit.

I've no tolerance for this crap anymore.
I won't side with the restaurant, because it's a crappy thing to do. You better be damned positive before you call someone out like that.
But whoever pulled their race card should be blackballed everywhere.

3. Yeah.

 

The employees who publicly slandered them and called the police were all black, amirite?

"... the person accusing them had described them as "a skinny girl and one who wore makeup," but couldn't recognize any of their facial features or defining characteristics."

4. Who's to say

At this point Applebees has all but written the check, the only question left is how many zero's will be attached to it.
