Waffle House statement

Waffle House released a statement claiming the woman who was arrested at an Alabama Waffle House last week made threats of violence to employees.

The Rev. Al Sharpton plans to host a town hall meeting in Mobile to discuss the arrest of Chikesia Clemons at a Saraland, AL Waffle House.



Video uploaded to social media shows several Saraland police officers hovering over Clemons on the floor. At one point she was choked by one officer who exposed her breasts as he manhandled her.

In a statement obtained by Channel 2 Action News on Monday, a Waffle House spokesman said:

“Previously, we stated that upon reviewing security video and eyewitness statement, it was our belief that our associates calling the police was necessary and appropriate. In the days since, we have gathered additional details and information, Witnesses say several threats were made to associate including threats of violence, and that’s why the police were called.”

Waffle House said the investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Last week, a shooting at a Tennessee Waffle House left 4 patrons dead and 4 wounded.

The statement comes on the same day that a group of activists planned to demonstrate outside the Waffle House headquarters in Norcross, Georgia.

 

#BoycottWaffleHouse Location: Saraland, Alabama. Read the story: At approximately 2:15am myself and my friend Chikesia Clemons enter the Waffle house and proceeded to dine in for food .. I then told this white Caucasian woman my order and ask could I have plastic utensils.. She then told me that it would be .50 cent . Lol I told her that I had just eaten there the night before and they didn’t charge me .50 cent and so on ..Shortly after and me my friend continued with our conversation and our rude ass waitress “Goldie” decided to put her two cents in on our conversation that had nothing to do ever th her .. I then read her rights and then canceled my order and walked out .. However my friend stayed behind to get a understanding while I waited outside only to have the cops called on her and to be treated this way .. After tonight I’m done with mobile police period ..I understand the priorities of them doing their job but tonight wasn’t it ..They made and me and friend feel unsafe and not welcome to the city of Saraland.

  • Applebootay

    Everybody says “Imma F you up” when they mad….that’s not really a threat…more like a warning….lol…shat is getting out of hand….

  • Junkanoo

    Personally l would just leave and not spend money there again why we cuss and carry on to spend money at places that disrespect us its weird

  • mona q

    I knew this was going to be the end result…whether true or not…I knew they were going to justify why the cops were called in the first place.

  • DETROITTOATL

    The food isn’t good to me anyway, So I would have just left. But to each it own.

  • DETROITTOATL

    They always do. What I did see in the video was wrong. I feel like all the Police man handling of her was out of order. The truth will be exposed..hopefully.

    For Waffle House to then do what exactly? I say go find “Goldie” and “talk” to her about it.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I knew there was more to the story. The video didn’t show what prompted the cops to be called.

  • BaileyBlue17

    “The Real” talk show won an Emmy! Waiting for shade story…

  • Marlika

    Welp Off topic just came from Panera and Almost smacked the shit out of the bish who handed me my food with out my bread bowl. I used the kiosk and order soup with a bread bowl. This bish got all sarcastic and loud and had the nerve to pat me on shoulder as I walked away.

    She almost lost her arm today. I talked to the manager and he gave me my bread bowl. I told her if she touches me again that I was going to smack phuck out of her. Sometime people bring it out in you. I just came from the dentist and my mouth is numb. All I wanted was my damn soup so i can go home!!

  • Fire & Ice

    This lady is lucky to be alive. In 2018 if you’re black, and walk away alive from ANY interaction with the police, you’re lucky smh.

  • DeJeri

    Well there was a recent mass shooting at a Waffle House so maybe the employees fear was somewhat justified…

  • MsPam

    Black folks getting mad about food, learn how to cook then you won’t have any problems!

  • FukkFolks2018

    This town is 90% white. Not city. A town. I dont want to eat at white ass Waffle House. I just damn it dont. Eat out when I go to Mobile or at my own house. Whatever. To each for real

  • FukkFolks2018

    Im just irked by this whole story and I truly dont know damn it why.

  • Malcom Flex

    Why lose your cool over nonsense?? You was willing to catches charges over bread?!

  • Stationarity

    What’s the difference between a threat and a warning? If it’s a warning, what’s the warning? Is it that they are about to F someone up? If anyone that I don’t know says “Imma F you up” I am not gonna try figure out if they are serious or not or wait and see. It’s too many crazy people in the world. We read about them everyday, on this blog. People in Atlanta get shot by strangers at the gas station over simple arguments.

    How about people say what they mean and mean what they say?

    What is the purpose of cussing someone out or saying “Imma F u up” and you don’t mean to do it. So are they trying to intimidate the person? I am really curious. How is that winning or what does the person gain from that?

    I am not particularly talking about this case, but your statement. You are right, it doesn’t mean that people necessarily mean it but how is a stranger supposed to know and figure that out cause some people do mean it. And if the purpose is to intimidate, that is just as bad.

    It took them almost a week to get their lies straight.
    We see you Waffle House and that greasy, nasty kitchen.

  • Fire & Ice

    I’ve never eaten at the waffle house. I see they’re buildinf one down the street from my house….I guess I’ll pass

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ha,ha,ha!!!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Aren’t Emmys bought and paid for?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Maybe she had worked overtime and was hungry and didn’t feel like cooking.

  • TOO REAL

    WAFFLE HOUSE FULL OF B.S. – WHERE ARE THE THREATS ON THE TAPE – NO WHERE. WHY NOT JUST STFU WAFFLE HOUSE AND FOLLOW STARBUCKS AND ADMIT YOUR RACISM AND DO BETTER.

  • TOO REAL

    BTW – why wasn’t the cops called when the naked man walk in and shot up one of your waffle houses. Or he didn’t threaten anyone he just shot them. So it’s alright to walk in naked and you do nothing. Is that because you saw the boy’s body was all white.

  • Trey

    Its good they called the police…..She prolly was in there cursing, running her mouth.then played stupid when the cops came.

    Waffle house is a dangerous play after hours…..

  • Trey

    Exactly…..thats why the police were called for the Waffle house hood rat

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Yea back in 2009 me and my friends went to a NC Waffle House I asked for plastic they tried to charge me as well I asked why since I had never been charged before she explained to me that since I was dining in they charge for plastic utensils I explained I had not been charged before she said well maybe you went to a corporate location we are franchised so by this time me and my friends we had ordered a bunch of food so I asked is the 50 cent worth 50 bucks worth of food? They still wanted to charge so we got up and left. Moral of the story you can state your point and get the hell on now they got to explain why they had to throw away all that food and void a check over 50 cent ????? I never ate there again either!

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    And one thing I ain’t gone do is beg a place to serve me with respect and take my money. I don’t argue with these folks if my stuff not right I give it back and leave. If the service bad I get up and leave. If I don’t feel like I’m wanted I leave THEN I CALL CORPORATE I refuse to allow folks to get me outta character so they can call the police on me AFTER they were disrespectful.

  • Kemi

    Get a lawyer or a legal representative Ms!! This new allegation coming out of the woodwork is fishy to me.

  • hi-liter

    Sometimes they will make you crazy in these Waffle Houses. If for some reason you are not satisfied with your food, esp if you visited in the wee hours of the morning, shat you cant even get a refund, you got to not eat your food, keep it in the same container and go back and talk to a manager the next morning for a refund.

  • king shun

    when black folks dont get their way they go crazy ready to attack and threaten anybody anyone who works in customer service knows this

  • MJF

    Maybe they didn’t have time to react, you thought about that? Dude probably ran in and started shooting…

  • Braxton P. Hartnabrig

    Been saying that for the longest. Only in the area’s where there are a lot of us going there after the club or concert.

  • therealkym

    I hate the food at waffle house. I ate there once many years ago and never went back and I WON’T EVER GO BACK. NEVER EVER!

  • Yoni7

    LOL It’s all too merch! It really is, especially after seeing the video.

  • mona q

    TROLL ALERT
    TROLL ALERT
    TROLL ALERT

  • mona q

    SMDH

  • mona q

    It honestly doesn’t matter if she was threatening or not. The police are supposed to DE-ESCALATE problems when they arrive on the scene. Not try to make an example out of people or prove they are in power by humiliation. They could see this girl was unarmed and not a threat. REGARDLESS.

  • Jamal Warner

    “Cursing, running her mouth”, which is not against the law. Nothing remotely she did warranted the force used by police.

  • Jamal Warner

    It’s not dangerous because black people go there. Especially, since the last mass shooting there was a white person. How do you explain that?

  • Jamal Warner

    Was name calling necessary?

  • Ebony Starr

    I work in customer service and crazy comes in all colors!

  • SumthinSweeter

    lmao…. ummm crakkkers go crazy too & u r truly a troll.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Facts!

  • bella28498 .

    I see ni99as taking my advice (going to work and going home) we have almost gone a little over a week and none of u are getting kicked out of white establishments.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Most black cook doh ?????.

  • Marlika

    I don’t care! The unecessary hard part she gave me on my shoulder is what really pissed me off and that’s when I cursed her out. Don’t put your hands on me. She had no reason to do that. She was being loud and sarcastic. ??

  • Hummingbird_225

    That’s a troll don’t respond

  • Malcom Flex

    You sound like one of my cousins she’s a short tempered FOOL getting arrested over petty CRAP.

  • A J

    Thanks 4 sharing! Most times corporate’s policies differ from family own business.

  • A J

    Trespassing & resisting arrest is against the law.

  • dontgetblocked

    Are you kidding me? This chick was running her mouth and hurling threats over 50 cents. She wore the skimpy dress and then resisted arrest. Then her dumb friends posted her bitties all over the Internet. I simply can’t be connected to nyggas like this. Just like white folks have the rich and educated and then poor white trash. She represents the poor white trash of the black race. In Waffle House acting like a fool at two in the morning. She ended up face down kissing the dirty floor.

  • A J

    Were they suppose to just wait until she’s ready to leave?

  • A J

    You can’t make threats by shooting folks. She should have just left after the altercation.

  • BaileyBlue17

    Tamar SICK!!!

  • Logan Roberts

    And Saltines go crazy & start shooting up folks. Your point?

  • bella28498 .

    Wasn’t her bail a stack? So pay 50cents or 1000k ?? I’m with u I’m not connected to these type of ni99as. I was pissed she did all of that knowing she had no underwear on.

  • Jamal Warner

    First, she was not trespassing, which I don’t think you care. Secondly, you have to be charged with a crime to even resist. Further, who is the victim in the crime if she even committed a crime. The narrative presented tries to minimize the force used by police and deflect to something irrelevant such as her being drunk, which no evidence exist, or she being loud. All working to present a negative image to justify the obsessive force used by police.

  • sunni_daze

    Waffle House is shit on a plate. This should be be a clear message that we as BLACK FOLKS should not step foot or spend nay fucking dime in this nasty, dimmly lit , dirty ass place. And anyone who supports the action of these pigs, are pieces of shit.

  • sunni_daze

    There wasn’t one.

  • sunni_daze

    Hello and Amen

  • Trace da Ace

    eww…anybody that will eat that warmed up garbage they serve is crazy…no way in hell….shit I would eat from Sheetz before I eat from Waffle House…. and Sheetz got some banging food…jus saying…

  • MsPam

    Nah, most don’t theses days, some black folks don’t know how to put a lid on the pot especially these younger folks!

  • Mirella

    A black woman being respected in Alabama? Nah. Police are the person who used to terrorize. lynch and burn black people houses 100 years ago. The black woman is the most disrespected, the most unprotected human being in this earth. Even other black women blame her for putting herself in that situation. Have you ever seen how a white man or a white woman talk to the police? They can get away with a lot of s h i t. And you won’t do anything for your black sister if she’s getting brutalized. Why don’t you tell the police that they will face maximum retaliation if they ever touch one black woman.

  • Mirella

    Black people got the right to eat at restaurants. You didn’t get the memo?

  • Mirella

    You threatened her? Wow! That’s bad. I don’t see how the fact that you went to the dentist gives you the right to be entitled and violent.

  • GoldenGloBeS

    Another loud one
    obnoxious ego heavy black woman she got what she deserved

  • MsPam

    I know they can but I’m not going to fight over something that is stupid like not wanting to pay .50 for utensils. Pick your battle. Sometimes some of us likes to entertain the yt folks!

  • thesecretary

    Disorderly Conduct/ public profanity is against the law in most states… not on the P.O.-P.O.s side at all!!!! She just fell into their trap by being emotional.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    How do you know she was loud?
    Because THEY said so?
    Nah, I need more than that.
