Kansas City Sunday Confessional: Betty Rae's Ice Cream Owner Shares Messy Divorce Deets Amid 'Cancel Culture' Meltdown

Two things . . .

I don't know what it is about ice cream shops but they always seem to inspire drama in Kansas City. 

Secondly . . .

This is a followup to a recent post wherein a gaggle of middle-class white women have been trolling social media "working" diligently to try and shut down a biz and push workers out of a job during a pandemic.

Still . . . We didn't want to share the deets on this sordid drama but a confessional PUBLIC POST has been live for more than a few hours and it provides ON THE RECORD testimony rather than anonymous hateration.

We don't pretend to take sides here and fancy ice cream really isn't our jam . . . However, the messy public figure divorce drama now playing for tens of thousands of locals is hard to overlook as the meltdown provides tragic schadenfreude entertainment for so many Kansas City social media denizens who want everybody to be as miserable as they are . . . As always, we advise skepticism and hope that locals will prioritize JOBS over bitter personal drama.

Screencapped and saved, check the link at the "on the record" post .  . . 

My name is David Friesen. Five years ago I founded Betty Rae's ice cream, named after my grandmother. For the past five years I literally worked myself close to death, we did 2 shops and a food truck in 3 years, got blessed with 3 beautiful kids and success. I also never wanted to be a public face, that's why I didn't call it "David's" and I'm not in many posts. Over the last two months, I've been trying to separate from my wife, and I tried to not involve business or children in it, but unfortunately it got very messy. I never thought we were those people. Over the last month, my wife has attempted to lock me out of the business I own solely, took the children and left. I've spent the last month legally trying to gain control of the business, process refunds for thanksgiving, and restaffing the shops, all while my name is being associated with the grossest, most untrue accusations I've ever faced. (I stand by everything I've done in the last year, with the exception of one case of poor judgement, not criminal. I have never crossed an inappropriate line with ANY coworker, the accusations are frustrating, shameful and impossible to defend against.) A post like this is the last thing I wanted to do, but I'm engaged in saving my business and clearing my name, in the middle of a pandemic. All I ask is people respect my and my wife's privacy, and try to understand that these things are very complicated, he said/she said and will be resolved in court, but court is slower than slander, and my opponents are fighting dirty. Last night the River Market was broken into and trashed. Anyway I don't have much more to say, I won't have comments on this post because frankly deleting lies has become exhausting emotionally and physically. Thanks for the support, looking forward to a better Spring one way or another.❤️🍦

So many in Kansas City want to cancel first and ask questions later.

Nothing says, "respect our privacy" like posting your bullshit on the internet.

Who cares? People are dying all over and the country is being seized by Communists.

11:55, get a grip.

Joe Biden received more votes than anyone in history.

If you think he's a communist, then you're an idiot.

Republicans are so stupid!

If you truly believe Joe Biden got more votes than Obama I feel bad for you. The man barely left his home. He did not campaign much and when he did no one showed up. Wake up. Think for yourself and don’t buy into the lies of the MSM. Democrats are so gullible and so easily manipulated.

If there's anyone who is "so gullible and so easily manipulated," it's the Cult of Trump. Sorry. It's a fact.

Also, Communists? Really? It's like you don't even know the meaning of the word.

^^ Ok Karen.

Stealing elections is the Communist way.

It is not important who is voting but who counts the votes.

Looking forward to raising your taxes and shipping your jobs to Communist China.

Good luck getting more than minimum wage when I throw the borders open to cheap immigrant labor.

Ahhh, isn't it grand the swamp is back.

Regards,
China Joe Biden

Nothing blows up voter turnout like a dog shit POTUS, aka Trump. When you're a shitty POTUS and hated so much, it's just inevitable.

So sad for Trump.

7:51 - no one gives a fuck how you feel. Fuck your feelings, right?

Let me break this down for you. Trumptards, like yourself, are the loud assholes that you knew in HS that no one could fucking stand. Always the center of attention. Biden didn't need to go out campaigning during an epidemic because he's not a narcissist that needs constant affirmation like the asshole you voted for. Also, there was a pandemic going on that the adults in this country took serious. Those adults also chose the responsible candidate.

As far as manipulation goes, take a fucking look in the mirror. You're in a fucking cult that listens to a guy spew lies over and over. So don't lecture us on questioning. Fucking moron.

Yeah, David Friesen is a liar. I don't know wtf "Tony's KC" is but it is not credible. I worked there. He is awful to work for. Everything in the Google doc is real. He was arrested for alleged assault, and is a narcissistic bully. Good thing no one reads this bs news outlet

I'm sorry, but you are posting straight up lies. You are enabling an abuser. He is one person claiming that MANY are lying while many people are saying that this one, very mentally ill person, is in fact the liar. I guess this is just a BS tabloid, so it doesn't really matter, I'm sure this isn't the first time you've posted unfounded crap, but it still shameful. Just believe women when they say they are victims. It isn't hard. And it wasn't middle aged wives...it was a former employee. So, again, you are talking out of your ass.
