Video: Trump supporters denied service at Virginia barbecue outlet

Cook Out discriminatesOn Monday, Fox2 reported that a group of Trump supporters were discriminated against by employees at a Cook Out restaurant in Colonial Heights, Virginia, after attending a campaign rally.

According to Fox 2:

Shannon Riggs and her cousins said they expected some push-back from protesters at Donald Trump’s rally in Richmond, Virginia, but they did not expect what happened when they stopped for dinner on the way home.

Dressed in Donald Trump shirts and hats, the family walked up to the window at the Cook Out on Boulevard in Colonial Heights to order burgers and milkshakes.

“As soon as we got to the window, someone inside said ‘Hell no! I’m not serving them,'” Riggs told CBS affiliate WTVR.

WTVR added:

“As soon as we got to the window, someone inside said ‘Hell no! I’m not serving them,'” Riggs recalled.

After a few minutes of discussion behind the window, their orders were eventually taken.

“Everyone was laughing and giggling,” Riggs said about the uncomfortable situation.

She said at one point, an employee yelled out an order was ready, but when her cousin went to the window to claim the food, she was told, “Oh not for you!”

“You should not be discriminated based on who you support, whether it be Bernie, Hillary or Mr. Trump,” Riggs said.

The company responded:

Cook Out is, and always has been, a politically neutral company. We welcome all customers regardless of political affiliation.  Regarding the refusal of service at our Colonial Heights location, the situation has been resolved and was resolved that night per Cook Out policy.

Imagine the outrage if this had been someone trying to get a cake for a gay wedding…  Actually, we don’t need to imagine…
