In the video, you see a Black mother and her children trying to enjoy a nice meal at Waffle House, but that immediately comes to an end when multiple employees who work there were racist. The mom decided to document the incident she had just experienced where she stated their waitress “asked for a noose” in front of her daughter. Upon, that racially fueled interaction she rightfully asked to speak to a manager and then he claimed: “to have two nooses in his car.”
She and her family was not expecting in this day and age to encounter such hatred like this stating, “So I’m pretty daggone sure this is probably the [most] racist place I’ve ever been,” she said. She then decided to take down their corporate office number to file a complaint, but no one ever got back to her. Making the comments section furious with the video receiving almost two million views, asking her to legal action. Which in fact she did and then finally someone reached out.
