Missouri Applebee's Fires Three Employees Over Racist Incident That Went Viral

 An Applebee's restaurant in Missouri recently fired three employees after a video went viral showing an incident of alleged racial profiling. An Applebee's spokesperson said in a statement:

The franchisee terminated the manager, server and another employee involved in the incident.  We do not tolerate racism, bigotry or harassment of any nature, and we have taken additional steps to close the restaurant at this time in order for the team there to regroup, reflect, learn and grow from this. 

The employees had called the police on two African-American women who were half-way through their meal. When the police arrived, one of the employees told them the women had been in the day before and left without paying. The accuser told the manager it was the same two women based on extremely a flimsy description that one of the women was skinny and the other wore make-up

 Alex Brison, one of the accused women, began filming the incident once the police arrived. She repeatedly explained that they had not been to the restaurant before and can be heard on the video saying:

This is racially profiling. We deal with this all the time. Black people in America have to deal with this all the time. 

The other woman on the video, identified only as Asia says:  

We’re being escorted out by the police! Oh my God! I don’t know what this is! This is crazy! 

Applebee's posted the following message on Twitter after firing the three employees involved. 

People wanted to know what Applebee's planned to do to fix the situation. 

And people were none too happy with the police officers either. 

There were people who appreciated the steps Applebee's have taken to rectify the problem.
