Cheddar’s Customer Says She Didn’t Mean To Get Racist Waitress Fired
We recently reported that last weekend a waitress at Cheddar’s in Murfreesboro, TN uploaded a Snapchat complaining about having a section full of n-words to serve while being hungover. Seriously?
One of her victims took to Twitter and Facebook to share her experience and response to the shady events:
Since posting the message, Chelsea has been praised for not being petty, with some people even comparing her behavior to Michelle Obama’s “When they go low, we go high” messaging.
The waitress has since been TERMINATED by Cheddar’s but Chelsea now says that she never intended to the racist employee fired for her comments according to CNN Money:
“I would never want to cause a hardship on anyone else, but at the same time there needs to be a repercussion for her action,” Chelsea Mayes told CNNMoney.
The incident happened at a Cheddar’s restaurant in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Mayes went there with four African-American friends after church on Sunday. She said their waitress was very friendly and they left her a 25% tip.
“In person she was great,” said Mayes. “She was a very nice person and she came over and laughed with us.”
Mayes, a 21-year-old cosmetologist and day care worker who is attending business school, said she was later contacted via Snapchat by someone who claimed to be the waitress’ mother.
She said the mother wrote, “People are being shot by attack rifles and stabbings all over the world and you are this concerned over one comment that was made by a sweet cute little blonde?”
“My response to her was that last year there were nine people shot down in South Carolina by a sweet little cute blonde,” said Mayes, referring to Dylann Roof, who is charged with murdering nine black parishioners. “Does that make it OK?”
Chelsea is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than us!
