In Wisconsin, a waitress named Brittany Spencer was allegedly fired after refusing to serve a table after the customers expressed homophobic views aimed at another customer.
Speaking to WTMJ-TV Milwaukee, Spencer said: "They [the customers] were asking me if I thought it was disgusting and wrong and why we would let someone like that into the establishment. To which I answered, ‘no, I do not agree with that’ and walked away.”
She then addressed her manager asking if someone else could serve that table since as he no longer felt comfortable doing so. “She essentially told me to suck it up or go home,” Spencer explained. “To which I said, ‘Okay, I will leave.’”.
After being fired for writing about the incident, Spencer wrote again stating:
“I WAS FIRED FROM MY JOB BECAUSE I REFUSED TO WAIT ON A TABLE WHO WERE MAKING TRANSPHOBIC REMARKS ABOUT GUESTS AT ANOTHER TABLE.
“But I’ll always choose my morals over money. See ya. Please feel free to leave a review on their Facebook page, Fat Joes bar and grill.”
