An Applebees manager called the cops because she thought two women in the restaurant were the same customers who ran out on a bill the night before.
The cop was actually very cavalier about the incident, not at all prepared to arrest anyone and was asking one woman in particular to calm down as he chuckled., “does she always get like this?” (The woman gets so distraught the video becomes among the most annoying you’ll ever listen to.)
Yes, it’s horrible to be accused of something that you didn’t do and have the police involved, (I’ve had it happen to me, it’s frustrating, particularly if the stakes are high) but a little self-control goes a long way in these incidents.
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out why this woman ramps up the way she does – she’s been taught that the world is against her because she is black, and this is justified hysterics considering “her plight.”
God knows no white people have ever been involved in a case of mistaken identity. And when it happens to them it’s just human error. If it happens to black people, RACISM.
One thing I’d like to point out to the shrill mess on this video – 2 black women DID run out on the bill the night before. It’s a shame she is being falsely accused, but don’t act like the persecution of any black person is outrageous.
Also, it might not be wise to use the lingo associated with that particular crime when talking to the police (the woman is mortified that the police would ever accuse her of a “dine and dash.”)
Applebees statement is disappointing-
At Applebee’s, we do not tolerate racism or bigotry of any nature. We regret any incident like this, because we want every guest experience to be positive.
Where was the racism?????
