Three black women claim to have been asked to leave a Los Angeles-area Cheesecake Factory because of their race, NBC Los Angeles reported. Latonia Whyte, Kimberly Jones, and Lucy Ngaujah all claim that, back in 2017, a white female server told them, “I’m closing you both out, and you people should leave,” roughly 20 minutes after they were seated, the complaint alleges.
While the server offered to bring them soup, the trio said they saw white families being served full meals in the restaurant.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Our computers are down, and I’m not serving you people,” the waitress allegedly told them.
Whyte asked point blank if they were being treated differently because they were black, to which they claim the server replied, “Yeah, that too.”
The report further states:
The plaintiffs allege they were finally able to order food two hours later. Shortly after, the manager they were speaking with earlier demanded Whyte hand over her cellphone for taking pictures of non-black guests who were being served.
“You all think you’re celebrities. Everybody wants to sue, and you are nobody,” they claim the manager said.
At that point, a black server came and waited on them for the rest of the night.
Sidney Greathouse, Cheesecake Factory’s vice president of legal services, released a statement which said: “We do not tolerate discrimination in any of our business practices. While we will not comment on the facts of the case, we deny the allegations in the complaint and look forward to this matter being resolved in the appropriate forum.”
