Holiday Inn's parent company has launched an investigation into a "shocking" viral video that shows a Black customer berating an autistic employee.

IHG hotels, which owns Holiday Inn, was disturbed by the video that was posted to Twitter.com on Sunday by Tariq Nasheed under the hashtag "Mayonnaise Meltdown."

"Why did you get mad and hit the compruter [sic]," the customer asked repeatedly.

The employee is seen punching himself in the face and hitting his head on a computer monitor after the customer pressed him about a reservation error.

"You've ruined my night, you've ruined my life, man," the employee said before walking away in tears.

The customer was later ejected from the hotel for harassing other employees.
 

IHG hotels called the treatment of the employee "unacceptable" and vowed to investigate the incident.

"We were shocked and saddened to see the video and the clearly unacceptable treatment of a longtime hotel colleague," Jacob Hawkins, a spokesperson for IHG Hotels & Resorts told Newsweek.

Hawkins said the Holiday Inn location where the incident took place is an independently owned franchise.

Still, he said every employee representing IHG Hotels & resorts "deserves to be treated with respect and dignity."

A Reddit user who identified himself as the employee said he quit his job and drank heavily after the video went viral.

He added that he suffers from bipolar disorder and schizo-affective disorders.

Empathetic Internet users donated over $123,000 to a GoFundMe created by a YouTube vlogger who identified the former employee as "Caleb C."

Twitter users were quick to criticize Tariq and the customer who filmed the video. A group of women attacked Tariq who referred to them as "non-FBA bed wenches."

Tariq Nasheed went off on Youtube vlogger Jeremy Hambly on his Twitter page last night. In a series of tweets, Tariq accused Jeremy of being a "white supremacist" and a "racist".

I have never heard of Jeremy Hambly until yesterday, when I wrote my post titled "Over $41,000 raised for Holiday Inn employee who was harassed by Black customer."

For some reason, Tariq decided to attack your auntie in a blistering post on FBAtimes.com, in which he refers to me as a "non-FBA blogger" who aligns myself with "suspected white supremacists."

I am a non-assuming middle aged blogger who never goes out of my way to insult or degrade Black bloggers. You would have to search way back in my archives to find a negative post about another Black blogger.

I am hurt and dismayed that Tariq chose to attack me in this manner rather than email me to discuss any issue that he may have had with me.

Below is an excerpt from his article:

"Non-FBA gossip blogger who goes by the name Sandra Rose, has featured a story on her site SandraRose.com where she is promoting a Gofundme page and YouTube channel created by a suspected white supremacist named Jeremy Hambly who also goes by The Quartering.

Sandra Rose has a history of writing articles that denigrate Foundational Black American celebrities. Many people online has had issues with the weird articles from Sandra Rose’s website, where she mocked Jay-z and Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy’s hair"

A Holiday Inn employee who was harassed and filmed by a rude customer over a reservation error has received overwhelming support online.

Caleb is the autistic man seen having a mental breakdown in a viral video recorded by an irate Holiday Inn customer.

The rude customer was ejected from the hotel for harassing other hotel employees.

The video went viral after Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed posted it on his Twitter page, and accused Caleb of being "racist".

A YouTube vlogger raised over $41,000 for Caleb on GoFundMe.

The vlogger who created the GoFundMe account criticized Tariq and referred to him as a repressed homosexual because of his rude responses to Black women on the app Clubhouse.

The women dragged Tariq and told him he was "cancelled" for his insensitive treatment of a man who was clearly in distress.

After quitting his job, Caleb took to Reddit.com to explain what happened.

"While I've now quit this position (my management supported me, and told me I'm welcome back. The guest was ejected from the hotel for escalating issues with staff and the owners.)

I do have mental disorders. I suffer from BPD and schizo-affective disorders. What this fine, 5’5” bald gentleman behind the camera DIDN’T record was the fact that he called me a F**GOT for an associates mistake.

He was aggressive, and fishing for a reaction. He sure got it; and I’m glad this was a wake up call for me to stop slaving away for corporations who do not care about you at all, or the guests."

Watch below as women attack Tariq on Clubhouse app.

Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed (pictured right) shared a video of a Holiday Inn worker having a meltdown after a Black hotel guest harassed him about a reservation error.

Tariq described the Holiday Inn employee as "racist" because he began punching himself and hit his head on a computer monitor.

The employee removed himself from an obviously stressful situation by walking away. "You destroyed my life!" he told the customer before leaving.

The angry guest appeared to calm down and seemed to understand that the employee was emotionally overwhelmed. But he posted the video online anyway and it went viral, garnering millions of views.

There was nothing racist about the exchange. In fact, the customer seems to be harassing the employee over a simple mistake.

A Reddit user who claimed to be the employee explained that he had too much to drink after going viral because his meltdown, caused by his schizo-affective disorder, was "documented by a rude customer at an establishment which I was employed."

The employee said he was driving drunk and he wondered "Why is this happening to me? Why can't people have basic human kindness and compassion for someone obviously not sound?"

Many of Tariq's followers assumed the employee was drunk at work when the incident occurred. However, the employee said he was drunk after the video went viral.

One of Tariq's followers threatened to come and see him when he travels to the United States.

Corporations such as Holiday Inn who hire people with mental illness should be commended. But such employees should be protected from rude customers.

Someone in management should have heard the commotion and approached the customer to offer their assistance. Another option is to avoid placing mentally ill people in vulnerable positions such as a front desk.

Question: Do you think companies ban recording videos of employees on the job site? Is recording video on private property a violation of employee rights?

Kids 'R' Kids terminated the contract of a preschool location in Georgia after a viral photo shows white kids eating while Black children wait for their food.

The image was taken from a surveillance system that is accessible by parents via mobile apps.

Outraged Twitter users demanded answers after the photo went viral.

"Look at this photo of teachers serving white children while the black children watch & wait for their food. PLEASE RT. This is Kids R Kids in Sandy Springs, GA. Surprised???"

Tariq Nasheed and other social media activists retweeted the photo, as it went viral.

One Twitter user with the handle @_solowKi wrote: "Imagine seeing 0 black children with food in front of them & saying you need context. It’s no saving some of y'all."

She added: "& they're trying to justify this bullshit by saying they feed kids by diet. Which pissed me off even more, so I want this viral so everyone involved is fired. Beyond insultin."

David Vinson, President & Chief Executive Officer of Kids 'R' Kids International, Inc., responded to the backlash on social media.

"After further review and much consideration of the photo/video in question, our company has decided to terminate that franchisee's Kids 'R' Kids contract and branding, effective immediately, leaving them to operate independently.

We apologize to the family, the community and all of those impacted by this situation and will use this as a learning tool to remind our Kids 'R' Kids staff on the importance of diversity and inclusivity."

Tariq Nasheed sparked a lively debate on Twitter.com when he tweeted: "Instead of talking about our tangibles, this is what the white Democrats think will appeal to us."

The Twitter activist uploaded a PSA video created by director Angela Gomes and producer Paul Fox to register Black voters. Gomes and Fox are Caucasian. The video features talented Black pole dancers who quickly gain the attention of Black viewers.

The dancers urge Black people to "Get your booty to the poll." The video links to a website, www.getyourbootytothepoll.com.

Tariq believes the Democrats would never insult other races and nationalities by delivering their message with tits and azz. He claims Democrats have such low regard for Black people that they didn't think twice about creating this video.

Pictures and video have surfaced of the male nanny hired by Dwyane Wade to watch his two young sons 24 hours-a-day.

Wade had just divorced his first wife, Siohvaughn Funches, and received full custody of his young sons. But he was a star NBA player who was often on the road. He needed someone to watch his kids. So, rather than call their mother, he turned to a male nanny.

Wade, 38, recently made headlines when he announced his 12-year-old son, Zion Wade, calls himself "Zaya" and prefers feminine pronouns.

The Internet wondered if someone influenced young Zaya to lean towards an alternative lifestyle.

In one video uploaded to social media by activist Tariq Nasheed, the nanny is seen boating with young Zion, who seems to be every bit a wide-eyed, fun-loving boy.

The Internet believes someone touched Zion when he was very young. Child experts say young children are eager to please adults in their lives. Some children are very easily manipulated by trusting adults.

Was Dwyane Wade a little too trusting with a non-family male around his sons? Is that why all images of the male nanny were scrubbed from Wade's social media?

So many questions.

Universal Pictures' film Queen & Slim landed in 5th place at the box office behind Sony's A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, starring Tom Hanks as Fred Rogers, the beloved TV personality who had an "emotional" relationship with his producer Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys).

According to Box Office Mojo, Queen & Slim took in an estimated $11.7 million over the three-day weekend and an estimated $15.8 million over five days. The film's budget was $18 million, which doesn't include the tens of millions of dollars spent on TV, Internet and print advertising.

Queen and Slim is a typical Hollywood propaganda film that, according to social media activist Tariq Nasheed, was intended to make white people "feel good", while portraying Black people as “buffoons" who kill each other for no reason.

Tariq says there was only one "bad" white person in the movie (the cop who was killed at the beginning). Every other white person is depicted as good people on some "Underground Railroad sh*t".

Queen & Slim was written by Lena Waithe, a male-identified lesbian (pictured right), and directed by Melina Matsoukas, left, best known as a music video director. Matsoukas' father is of Greek and Jewish descent, and her mother is African-Cuban and Jamaican.

According to Tariq, Waithe and Matsoukas portray Black people as either ghetto "buffoons" or impulsive wannabe heroes with poor insight and bad judgment.

Tariq was particularly annoyed that Matsoukas and the film's stars, British actors Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith, are Non-Foundational Black Americans in the ADOS movement for reparations.

The majority of glowing film reviews were written by white movie critics who fell for the lie that Waithe and Matsoukas are somehow experts on the Black experience in the Deep South.

The improbable, unlikely story of a defense attorney throwing her career away for a guy she just met on the Tinder app is couched in a "love story" that is about as believable as Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Tariq notes that Queen & Slim's terrible choices led to their ultimate demise at the end.

Though Queen & Slim received an "A-" CinemaScore, the movie did not meet box office expectations.

Celebrities and Black Instagram bloggers were recruited at the last minute on Saturday to plead with Black people to rush to the theaters to support the film.

Social media activist Tariq Nasheed revealed he suffers from chronic gout. Gout is a common form of arthritis that causes intense pain, inflammation and swelling in the joints.

In a video, Tariq shared that he recently underwent surgeries on his foot to debride an infected wound caused by uric acid deposits in his toe joint. He said his gout is hereditary since his father also has "very bad" gout in his foot and had to have a toe amputated.

What Causes Gout?

Gout is caused by high levels of uric acid in the bloodstream. Uric acid is a normal waste product from the digestion of foods that contain high levels of purines.

Purines are normally produced in the body and are also found in foods, particularly organ meats such as liver, kidney and sweetbreads, and seafood, including shrimp, anchovies, herring, sardines, mussels, scallops, trout, tuna, mackerel and haddock.

These foods should be avoided if you have gout. You should also reduce your alcohol intake.

What are gout attacks?

Gout attacks, also known as flare-ups, occur in waves of sudden, intense pain, redness of the joints and swelling. The pain usually wakes you up at night when the body temperature is lower. The pain intensity peaks at 24 hours and lasts for five to seven days.

After the attack subsides sufferers usually are symptom-free until the next flare up.
Gout can be acute (newly diagnosed) or chronic (longterm). Chronic gout is when people experience 2 or more gout attacks per year. Some people have only short breaks between multiple gout attacks. While others may only have 2 gout attacks per year.

Who is at risk for gout?

1-2% of Americans suffer from gout. Anyone can get gout, but it is more common among older Black men in their 40s and menopausal women. Risk factors include medications, such as diuretics and cyclosporine.

Doctors believe gout is associated with kidney disease which may be undiagnosed. People who suffer from gout are unable to clear the uric acid from their bloodstream via their urine due to kidney disease. Since uric acid is not removed from the body in urine, it builds up in the blood and forms irritating crystals which are deposited in the joints.

Untreated gout can lead to kidney disease and, in rare cases, kidney failure. Some people can have high uric acid levels and never develop gout.

50% of gout attacks occur in the feet, particularly the joint at the base of the big toe, but gout can also be found in other joints, including the ankles, elbows, knees, fingers and wrists.

What are signs and symptoms of gout?

Signs and symptoms include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Joint may feel hot to touch
  • Stiffness in joints
  • Shiny skin over affected area
  • What is treatment for gout?

    Fortunately treatments are very effective in relieving gout pain. Ice packs can make you feel good. Also taking medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including Motrin (ibuprofen), Advil (ibuprofen) and Aleve (naproxen). Colchicine is an alternative for those who suffer from stomach ulcers and are unable to take NSAIDs. Glucocorticoids (steroids) are as effective as NSAIDs. Consult your doctor or healthcare provider for treatment that works best for you.

    Liberals hate it when Black people don't play along with their attempts to keep them "in a perpetual state of grievance in order to keep them as a one-party people in a two-party system," according to Walter E. Williams.

    Online activist Tariq Nasheed was canceled by Kickstarter because, among other things, he bashed the Harriet Tubman film, starring British actress Cynthia Erivo, before the movie could earn back its production costs at the box office.

    Liberals love their slavery movies - and that sticks in the craw of anti-racists like Nasheed, who railed against the movie for twisting the historical facts and for making the film's villain a Black man named "Bigger Long".

    Tariq and his 266K followers on Twitter.com campaigned against the film, and they celebrated when the movie earned only $12 million on opening weekend - a flop by any other standards.

    "Can anyone point to any other time in modern history where Hollywood & the mainstream media praised a movie and called it a 'success' for making just $12 million dollars on opening weekend?" Nasheed asked his followers on Twitter.

    Nasheed blamed his Tubman movie critique as part of the reason for losing his Kickstarter crowdfunding to raise $200,000 for his Foundational Black American Conference 2020 in Atlanta.

    Nasheed took to YouTube to lash out at Kickstarter for not giving him a clear reason why the crowdfunding was canceled.

    Nasheed has since moved his crowdfunding efforts over to Indiegogo.com where he quickly raised $11,190 of his $200,000 goal.
