There is driving while Black, but don’t forget eating while Black. Yep, we can be racially profiled everywhere — even at Applebee’s.

Alexis Brison said while dining at a Indepence, Missouri Applebee’s, she and her friend were racially profiled. On February 10, Brison wrote on Facebook that a mall cop arrived and, she explained, “We were told that we were accused of eating and not paying for CHICKEN the day before (dining and dashing).” She continued, “We have proof that can show our whereabouts and it’s not even in our character to steal.

After being mocked, humiliated, and embarrassed we were asked to pay for our food, leave, and not come back.” After they left, they called the manager who said they were accused because a “skinny girl” and a girl “who wore make up” dined and dashed. For a clearly racist reason, the Applebee’s staff thought these two women were the same people. Alexis wrote, “Just because we are Black does not mean we are all criminals and I will not be treated as such.”

Fortunately, Alexis caught the moment on camera, with a condescending cop telling them they have to “understand.” The white waitress said she was “almost positive” the two women dined and dashed as the cop mocked one of the women who was crying. The video is absolutely infuriating.  Watch below:

Applebee’s released a statement to Kansas City Star,  “Our team has been working throughout the weekend and will continue to work to determine what happened and what appropriate measures will be taken. We do not tolerate racism or bigotry of any nature. We currently have no indications this was race related. We have a diverse workforce that is reflective of the community we serve. All are welcome at our restaurant, and will continue to be welcome.”

No indication? Either Applebee’s upper management is as delusional as the white waitress or they want to avoid a lawsuit. Sounds like Applebee’s needs that H&M treatment.

  1. The only thing white businesses understand is STOP patronizing their companies. When green money is not spent and their establishment they understand that that’s the only color they understand green

  2. WOW!!, what a sad situation, Not all of us beautiful brown skinned people look alike. I hope this food chain gets whats coming to them along with the rest of them.

  3. I swear, it seems that people are getting dumber by the day. Or maybe people just don’t care about being able to make a living these days. These knuckle draggers are going to have a bitch of a time finding work with this video floating around. Which is exactly what they deserve.

  4. You gotta be kidding me! The two who dined and dashed were white. Unless these two ladies were light bright and darn near white, no way could they be the culprits.

      Uh yeah playa, because blacks provide the most attentive service, run top notch businesses, and have nothing but respect for other blacks. We be better off going to white businesses. Sorry

    This was heartbreaking. I too have a 19 y.o. and could imagine her in this situation. I would not have wanted her to go through this ordeal, I already know she wouldn’t have handled it as I would have. (take that how you want).
    All the manager from Applebees had to do was review footage from the night before PRIOR to calling the cops. I know they are looped but it should be at least on a 24/48- hour loop. This was so damn disrespectful and total non-sense. No crying here tho, just a whole slew of unkind adjectives of the explicit nature, most likely an arrest would have been warranted. F*** Applebees, I don’t like their food anyway.

    • The only person crying would have been the waitress from me being up in her face. Actually she wouldn’t have done that to an older person. She took advantage of their youthfulness.

    Ok first, where the f are BAW’s resident trolls? Jhuf, mynue (whose parents are twins) and macdummy?
    Why no comments? No defense for this white heifer’s lies, she’s probably a 1st cousin of yours?

    • Mac Daddy on said:

      Multiple staff identified these black women as the people who skipped out previously. You are assuming they are innocent because they say so? Black women, the bastions of truth, say they didn’ do nufin. Ok right

      • Fool it’s already been proven it wasn’t them. The company is already seeking out these girls to apologize to them. So you can go have plenty of seats.

  7. I cried my ass off after watching the video. This was extremely heartbreaking. It could have been my daughters sitting there trying to enjoy a meal and end up being racially profiled and publicly humiliated like that. In 2018, I would have never thought we were going back to the era of our ancestors of being blatantly discriminated against.

    I have been following this story and according to the NYdailynews, the waitress, manager and another employee have all been FIRED. The actions of a racist waitress costs this company/brand national embarrassment, as well as 3 individuals jobs…while also scaring 2 young ladies.

    What will fix this ? – – A boycott, free meals, lawsuit, public apology, etc. ?

  8. THIS IS TERRIBLE BUT THAT YOUNG LADY BETTER LEARN CRYING IS NOT GOING TO MAKE IT BETTER. IT DID NOT MAKE THEM TREAT HER ANY DIFFERENTLY, THEY DIDN’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT HER CRYING AND CARRYING N. WHEN THEY TOLD THEM TO PAY THEIR BILL AND LEAVE AND NOT COME BACK THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE JUST THAT, POSTED THE VIDEO, AND THEN TOLD THEM TO FUCK OFF. IT IS A NEW DAY OUT HERE AND 45 HAS LET THESE PEOPLE BELIEVE THEY CAN TALK TO AND TREAT US IN ANY MATTER OR WHY THEY WANT TO. STAND UP, BOSS UP, MAN UP OR WHAT EVER AND SHOW THEM THE POWER OF YOUR MONEY, DON’T SPEND IT THERE. LET THEM HAVE TO DEPEND ON PEOPLE LIKE THEMSELVES TO KEEP THAT PLACE GOING. IT WAS OBVIOUS THEY TOOK HER WORD OVER YOURS SO CRYING WAS NOT GOING TO MAKE THEM SAY, OH SHE COULDNT HAVE DONE IT. SO DRY THEM TEARS, AND DONT EVER PATRONIZE THAT PLACE EVER AGAIN.

  9. I’m sorry, but her crying was too much for me. I surely understand her being upset but crying was not the way to deal with the situation. And that trailer-trash looking waitress knew what she was doing. I certainly do hope that she has been fired and folks need to rethink their patronizing Applebee’s. I personally do not eat there and certainly won’t change on that. These companies always want to say what their policy is yet it never seems to be carried out. Keep your money…..!!

  10. BOYCOTT ALL APPLEBEES!!!!!!!!!!!

    So, this is what folks of COLOR now have to look forward to during the age of Chump-more
    IGNORANT RACIST SHIT!!!!!!

    First of all, the white POS waitress should NOT have been believed.
    She could NOT POSITIVELY IDENTIFY the two women who had previously
    dined and dashed at the Applebee’s days before.

    Being ALMOST positive-DON’T MAKE IT SO!!!!!!!!!!
    Plus, ALL OF US DO NOT ALL LOOK ALIKE!!!!!

    The waitress should be FIRED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Her actions were done with MALICIOUS INTENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    When you know you are still not free, these things don’t surprise you and you are able to deal with this type of discrimination

    I am a white woman and i watched this video and i saw that the cops did not ask the waitress for any kind of proof that these.
    2 ladies were there the night before and did
    Not pay their bill. They were discriminated against for the color of their skin

  13. Kevin, you shouldn’t have been in Applebees at all. The two sisters either. Applebees, Cracker Barrel, Denneys, Waffle House, and several others I can’t recall, all have had discrimination lawsuits brought against them. Treatment and hiring. Back in the seventies it was well known, they haven’t stopped, and they never will, until you know the power of your dollar. Wake up black people stop spending your money where it’s not appreciated.

  14. it is a shame that someone would have to go through something like this with no proof on the say so from a waitress. with all the cameras in the world today it should have been proven. I know as a black person I will never go to applebee’s again.
