RepostBy @dp_mind.and.soul: "#Tempers flared inside a #DominosPizza shop in #PembrokePines after a misplaced order prompted an #employee to use a #racialepithet during an argument with a customer.
Cellphone video captured the May 5 altercation between #MarlonRobinson and the Domino’s employee.
“You’re the manager, I’m the customer. Act accordingly,” the customer is heard yelling in the video.
The exchange becomes increasingly more heated.
Robinson said he had ordered the pizza delivered to him, but after waiting for hours, he learned the order had been routed to the wrong location.
The customer then went to the Domino’s pick up the pizza himself, and it was then that, he said, an employee used the #ethnicslur. “I was speechless. I didn’t know what to say,” said Robinson.
“I ain’t your friend! You don’t talk to me like that!” the customer is heard yelling.
“In the video I was more upset because none of the two-hour wait, none of the discount, none of any of that,” said Robinson. “I was upset by how I was treated, as far as me being the customer and them being the business.”
“Pizza on the ground. This is the wrong one. Look at it. The wrong one, bro,” he is heard saying as he shows himself on camera while an employee picked up the pizza boxes from the floor.
Robinson has since hired an attorney to make sure this incident isn’t ignored. “I don’t want to be silent about something that — you know, I’m a 36-year-old man,” said Robinson. “I’ve lived in this community over 25 years, and I don’t think that the kids after me who maybe look like me or act like me or talk like me should have to deal with this whenever they go somewhere and not be heard.”
“We want to bring this to light to let businesses know it’s not OK to treat customers like this,” said his attorney, Chesky Rodal.
