WATCH: Police Violently Arrest A Black Woman & Expose Her Breasts At Alabama Waffle House In New Viral Video

Someone should forward this story to Kim “racism isn’t real” Zolciak-Biermann

From Starbucks to Applebee’s (and many other establishments, for that matter), getting fair customer service can sometimes be impossible when you are Black. This was indeed the case for Canita Adams and Chikesia Clemons at a Waffle House in Saraland, Alabama.

Early on Sunday, April 22th, 25-year-old Chikesia Clemons was arrested by white police officers. The whole scene was captured on video and it is extremely, extremely upsetting.

In it, three officers can be seen slamming her to the floor (exposing her breasts). Oh and one officer threatens to break her arm. 

Horrifying.



According to Canita Adams’ Facebook page, this all happened after the white woman who took their order said there would be a charge of 50 cents for plastic utensils. Allegedly, Canita and Chikesia were there the day before…and there hadn’t been a charge for plastic utensils. 

So, they canceled their order. Canita left, while Chikesia stayed behind because she wanted a business card…but the woman at the counter rang up the police instead.

Waffle House has responded to the incident, telling AL.com, “It’s fair to say that the information we have received at this point differs significantly from what has reportedly been attributed to Ms. Clemons and strongly supports the actions taken by the Saraland Police Department. The Saraland Police Department is conducting its own investigation and we encourage you to contact them for additional information.”


Oh boy.

Clemons was booked on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. She was released on $1,000 bond on Sunday morning.


Watch the video below: 


Mobile NAACP President David Smith had some insight to share.

“In light of the current situation in our country — such as the arrest of two young Black men at a Philadelphia Starbucks coffee shop — we felt it was important for our members to get a first-hand account of the incident, which has now gone viral on social media locally and across the country. When incidents like this happen in our own backyard, it is incumbent upon the local NAACP to take a closer look and move the matter to whatever level is appropriate.” 


People are also pointing out the irony that this incident picked up social media steam on Alabama’s Confederate Memorial Day (which is, sadly, a real freakin’ thing).


Ugh.
