The disrespectful punk Whataburger employee who refused to serve police officers just learned her fate, and it’s not pretty:
Whataburger quickly retaliated by firing a Texas employee after she hurled curses at two police officers and refused to serve them at a location just north of Dallas on Saturday.
Whataburger CEO Preston Atkinson personally called Denison Police Chief Jay Burch to apologize after two of Burch’s officers were refused service Saturday. Whataburger announced Sunday that the unnamed female employee had been fired. She had cursed at the pair of officers because her boyfriend had recently been arrested and “beaten up” by police, the San Antonio Express-News reported. When police reviewed footage of the man’s arrest, however, there was no evidence of any physical altercation.
“If a business does not want police officers as customers, just let us know.” Burch wrote in a post on the department’s Facebook page Saturday. “There’s no need to curse us and make a scene, just let us know you don’t want us there and we’ll go somewhere else.”
The police department initially tried to keep the problem local by speaking to the employee’s manager. The manager said there was nothing he could do, however, because he doesn’t get involved in politics, Express-News reported. It was then that Burch took to Facebook and alerted Whataburger corporate to the issue.
“We immediately launched an internal investigation when we heard these reports,” Whataburger Corporate Communications wrote in a release. “We took swift action and this person is no longer employed by us.”
No action was taken against the location manager.
The Dallas Morning News has the fired employee’s explanation as to why she refused to serve a police officer:
The woman had claimed her boyfriend was “beat up” by cops, the Denison chief wrote in a Facebook post Saturday. The chief said the allegation was found to be untrue and no one was injured in that routine arrest.
The female employee cursed at the officers and the on-duty manager’s response was “I don’t get into politics,” the post said.
“I guarantee you when they call 911 and need us, we’ll come running,” Chief Jay Burch’s post said. “That’s what cops do.”
Fox News has Whataburger’s response:
In a statement, a Whataburger spokesperson said “an individual employee acted out of line with Whataburger’s values to treat all customers with respect. We took swift action and this person is no longer employed by us.”
Denison Sgt. Holly Jenkins said on Facebook that the employee was unapologetic, expressed her hatred toward police and said she would continue to refuse service to police officers.
Jenkins said the two officers were served by another employee.
“I am saddened, disappointed and angry about the treatment these two officers received this morning,” she said. “However, when Whataburger or their staff call, we will respond. We will not hesitate. We will respond with courage, compassion and professionalism.”
This entire incident was a total disgrace, and is just another result of the anti-American, anti-police narrative being spread by the Left and their media allies.
