Activist refused paying in a restaurant after hearing R. Kelly’s song on repeat
An activist in a restaurant in Atlanta refused to pay after they played songs by alleged sex predator, R. Kelly, repeatedly.
Kenyette Tisha Barnes refused to pay at an Applebees restaurant in Atlanta after she said she was forced to listen to a song by sexual predator, R-kelly. She took to her twitter page to recount her experience, stating that the restaurant have threatened to get her arrested. She wrote;
Tonight I was forced to listen to R.Kelly, on repeat at @Applebees, in Atlanta. I asked to not be forced to listen to a sexual predator. I refused to pay. THE MANG. CALLED THE POLICE AND THREATENED TO HAVE ME ARRESTED. The BW staff was dancing. We have a SERIOUS problem here!
That we are more comfortable marginalizing the sexaual violence against black girls is reprehensible. No wonder 60% of blk girls are sexually abused.Enablers and predators.
The restaurant replied by tweeting;
Kenyette, we always want guests to feel comfortable at their neighborhood Applebee’s. We connected with the local franchise who confirmed that they’ve been in contact with you.
One of her followers quickly tweeted a reply to the restaurant: Don’t do it. She did the same thing at a car lot when she was test driving a car and the radio was playing rkelly and she demanded to get the car for free. Don’t do it!!- Michelle Davis
