A Cheddars waitress in Murfreesboro, Tennessee has just lost her job after posting a racist image on Snapchat, which of course went viral. In the Snapchat photo, she captioned her angry face, complaining that “I’m so hung over and have a section full of ni***rs right now.” Somehow a woman named Chelsea, one of the people in that same group she was serving, saw the hateful message and wrote some thoughts on Twitter.
You can see the original photo, plus Chelsea’s reaction below.
Here’s the story of what happened, according to Chelsea Mayes’ Facebook post, one of the women who was being served:
Yesterday this photo of a Murfreesboro Cheddar employee started circulating on social media. Being as though I was lucky enough to be one of the “N***ers” she speaks of, I feel it’s only necessary to give my view!
Afte church a few fellow First Baptist Church of Murfreesboro TN college choir members and I decided to go to Cheddars as we do very often. After patiently waiting 30 minutes to be seated, we were placed in this lovely lady’s section. The funny part about this was she was “friends” with one of us that sat at this table. She smiled laughed and joked with us as we all enjoyed our meals.
Being that we were pleased with the service on a busy day, we each GENEROUSLY tipped her and went about our day. So imagine how extremely disheartening it was to see this circulating only hours later.
I said all of that to say this. You never truly know the person behind the smile. No matter how much love and joy you spread, there will always be someone with hate in their heart towards you, regardless if it’s in your face or when you leave. It’s up to you how you handle it.
I am personally extremely proud of myself. If this had been Chelsea a couple years ago, Cheddars would have been flipped upside down. But now I just feel sorry for her.
This “n***er” is pretty nice.
This “n***er” actually enjoyed your company.
This “n***er” is praying for you.
This “n***er” loves you and there’s nothing you can do about it
Reaction To The Image
A Cheddar’s spokesman told WSMV-TV in a statement that, “We, ourselves, were shocked and offended after learning one of our servers had posted comments on social media that were hurtful and derogatory. This type of behavior will never be tolerated in our restaurants. The server was immediately suspended and ultimately terminated after our internal investigation.”
