(Scroll down for video) A restaurant has released a video of a couple, who was banned from their restaurant for being racist against their American employee.
18-year-old Sadie Karina, who works as a waitress at a restaurant in Virginia, was born and raised in the United States.
However, since she is of mixed Mexican and Honduran descent, a customer assumed that she was an illegal immigrant.
Karina said that she was serving a couple at the Jess’ Quick Lunch in Harrisburg, who she never met. She said that the couple was rude to her while she was serving the food.
Karina did not pay too much attention to the couple’s attitude until she saw the receipt with the comment as to why she was denied a tip.
The comment on the receipt read: “we only tip citizens.”
Karina showed the receipt to her grandfather, John Elledge, who is white, ands works as a lawyer. He took to the Internet to express his anger over the incident.
Elledge wrote on Facebook that he would happily do the jail time if he could “get just one solid punch in to the face of the son of a b***h who left the receipt.”
People identified the couple from the surveillance video and claim that they are “nice people.” However, Karina said that they never apologized to her over the incident.
The restaurant owner decided to ban the couple from returning to their establishment.
