APPLEBEE'S APOLOGIZES FOR ALLEGED RACIAL PROFILING AS INDEPENDENCE, MO LOCATION CLOSED NOW & 3 WORKERS FIRED!!! DO YOU FORGIVE THEM???



Posted to social media for tonight, a heartfelt apology from Applebee's for this embattled location that's confronting harder times amid the failing nearby mall.

And so . . .

DESPITE SKEPTICISM FROM HATERZ, THE BIZ MOVE HERE IS PUBLIC APOLOGY AND THROWING STAFF UNDER THE BUS!!! DO YOU AGREE WITH THE STRATEGY AND WILL IT WIN YOUR BIZ BACK???

KMBC: 3 Applebee’s employees fired, Indep. store closed after women claim they were racially profiled

Again, more than 60 women have filed sex harassment complaints against IHOP & Applebee's. Recently, they've also apologized for not paying employees with Autism enough and for kicking a family with rowdy kids out of one of their restaurants.

Applebee's continues to struggle and parent company DineEquity Inc. is closing 160 restaurants across the nation.

You decide . . .

They shut them down.

That was fast.

The smart move here, you just can't really justify that kind of treatment of customers. Glad that Applebee's did the right thing.

Actually, really unfair to the management who was just going by the book. Damn shame actually. I don't agree with profiling but it's not clear that's what was happening. It was a very quick investigation from the looks of it and might have had more to do with crisis PR.

They did the right thing!

No maybe not on this video, but NO corporate restaurant is going to risk doing this to a customer (especially one that's recording) if they aren't absolutely sure that this is repeat behavior. There is a reason that the entire service industry hates dealing with black people.

One day when I get my time machine I am going to spend the rest of my life traveling in time to remind white people not to be cheap and stop importing shitskins. Just hire white people and pay the extra money it is worth it in the long run. Part of me wants to blame it on the Jews but its not their fault it is just the white mans greed.

^^^ That's so sad that you would take the time to write down such a garbage thought and think anybody would care about it.

Even if you had a time machine, nobody would pay attention to you. Even your fantasies, you still can't win.

Really sorry that life turned out so bad for you. You can still turn it around but a better future doesn't involve writing mean internet comments.

Keep trying, you can do better for yourself if you stick to it!

Still think I can find a better restaurant than this one.

Sad? I Think It's Right On Target.

Do better KC said...

Nah, just really, really pathetic that somebody would waste time trying to pass that kind of hate off as an independent thought. It's not even good storm front or alt-right material. Not funny, intelligent, clever or witty just kind of lonely and desperate. I guess that's why most people become seething racists because they're angry and don't have any life or prospects. People who are succeeding and working on things that are worthwhile don't get bogged down in hating other people because they're out there trying to get ahead.

I'm not defending applebee's or those women.

But this whole episode proves that KC has a long, long way to go before we can really make progress on race relations without the emotional problems and history hold up progress.

^^^ Please get of your soap box on your ivory tower. Your righteous indignation is so very pompous.

Uh oh. Camera data was likely scrutinized, OR THERE IS NO ARCHIVED PHOTO DATA FROM THE ALLEGED EARLIER THEFT and the analysis must have shown that *the fountain of tears and her friend* HAD NOT BEEN EASILY DETERMINED, NOR PROVEN, AS PRIOR DINED AND DASHED CRIMMIES!

As Monday morning QB here, it seems to me, the manager could have used a craftier tact with a friendly "watch" on the suspected D & D offenders. A tableside chat with popo might not have been necessary. Allowing the two gals to finish eating, watching that they pay, then identifying their car tags for filing away until proper recorded surveillance can be gone over would lower the chances of faulty accusations. Well, lessons learned, perhaps. 5

Haven't been to this Applebees in years, usually go to one of those located in the Northland, but I would have started going to this location more regularly if they had supported their employees.

Now I have to question whether I'll go to the chain at all, not because of management's actions, but they have to have DESTROYED any employee morale or motivation that existed.

JUST SHOWS YOU WHETHER OR NOT MANAGEMENT HAS YOUR BACK, KIDS!
BETTER START JOB HUNTING RIGHT AWAY, AND WATCH OUT!

Oh, and FREE MEALS FOR ALL AFRICAN-AMERICANS, JUST BE SURE TO BRING YOUR TAXPAYER-PROVIDED CELLPHONES!

Just For the Record said...

Applebee's is bleeding and this just proves such. But make no mistakes in your thinking these black's involved in this incident are far from innocent. Is the security cop and the police officer going to be fired? Two other key players in this incident who it appears had reason to believe there was enough reason to support the staff in asking these customers to leave.

Those employees got what they deserved. Incredibly stupid way to handle that problem. Job well done.

This area is on the decline. Going to be another Bannister within 3-5 yrs, possibly sooner.

Never accuse a thieving boon of being a thief or the libtards will go postal.

8:09 The city needs a no black zone, there are plenty of no white zones.

Sounds like a staged event to close them down.

Anonymous said...

This restaurant is slated to close soon anyway. The employees will need to look for new jobs regardless. The firings didn't accomplish much, more of a feel good tactic than anything. Now they'll get unemployment benefits.

Anyone here showing up at the Applebees protest at the Legends Sat afternoon?

I don't for a second think those two women were innocent. The restaurant manager didn't call the police for no reason. The whole crying act was just that - an act. If she was so embarrassed, why was she wailing and bringing attention to herself? Because they saw an opportunity to get over on the restaurant, police, etc. I'd die before I'd post a video of myself acting like that on Facebook.

I have seen similar behavior at Houston's on the Plaza - black people trying to get free food and making a scene and asking for the manager when there is nothing wrong with their food. And then told the manager to LEAVE the food they were complaining about on the table (instead of taking it back to the kitchen) and bring them something else.
