    Dairy Queen owner unleashed a racist tirade on customer, He no longer has a Business.

    A Dairy Queen owner unleashed a racist tirade against a customer. He no longer has a business.

    The Dairy Queen owner shouting the n-word at Deianeira Ford told her he could say whatever he wanted at his fast-food restaurant — that any accusations and complaints she uttered would fall on deaf ears. Ford was vindicated two days later, when her Facebook post about the incident provoked outrage so strong that the Dairy Queen in Zion, Ill., didn’t open for business. But her victory was tempered by something even more troubling that she heard at a protest: Although she was the most vocal victim of the owner’s racism, she was not the first.

    On Wednesday, Ford had taken her two children to visit their grandmother — and, because they were well-behaved, she stopped by the Dairy Queen on the way home. She ordered a $5 box, but part of the order was wrong, and another part was missing. So she asked the owner to fix the order, and when he balked, she asked for a refund. That’s when things spiraled. The owner, James “Jim” Crichton, returned her $5, but gave her a mouthful, according to Ford and the police in Zion, 50 miles north of Chicago. “He called me and my children n—–; he said I can go back to where I came from,” Ford told The Washington Post. “He took out his flip phone and he said he would take a picture and put it on Facebook because he wants to show the world what kind of n—— he has to deal with. Then he shut the window and walked away.”

    WOW!!! what is wrong with people? This nutball had a complete meltdown over his employees making a mistake so it caused him to lose his businesses. What a completely dummy and moron. Nutters and their meltdowns crack me up. Sad and funny at the same time. Good move DQ sweeping in and taking his franchise from him he is clearly unstable and incompetent. What ever ills he has I hope he gets them fixed, he needs serious help.

    My favorite part is, though he didn't break any criminal law, when the police showed up and questioned him he doubled down on his retardation melt down to the polices officer?!?! lol

    “Crichton boastfully told me he would be happy to go to jail over the issue and proudly admitted to calling Ford a n——. He added that he is ‘fed up with black people,’ ” and described an incident in which two “of them” were in his restaurant squirting ketchup all over the floor, according to the officer’s report. “During the course of my conversation with Crichton, he used the word ‘n—–‘ freely to describe black people,” the officer continued.
    and then a history of him doing this comes out . . . . .Man James “Jim” Crichton is a class A dummy.

    I am dumbfounded more often than I should be at people who are absolutely the wrong type of people to be working a public facing service job that just shouldn't be.

    Sadly I'm rarely shocked by these people/incidents happening. The shocking part is that the person in question or others double down or support the incident and they think they have logic to do so. There could be more missing from this story but nothing will actually support what the dude did and regardless of any retractions or apologies you know at home behind closed doors he still thinks he is in the right.

    I'm glad nutters like him are getting more rare and we just get to see and hear about them more in todays technology based world but it's still shocking a person can be like that and at the same time function, like you said, in a public facing service job.

    Seems that maybe we as a people, as a country, need to do better identify these whackjobs and pointing them out because you just know they have had many many flags in their lives that showed others who they are and enough wasn't done.

    Yeah, you can't do anything you want when your business is a franchise. Idiot.

    I don't agree with this. A man doesn't deserve to lose his business for being a racist, he deserves a chance to change his ways and publicly show he has changed. Public humiliation is fine, but to be happy that people lost their jobs because of some stupid **** their boss did is ****ing asinine.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Heck even if this was James “Jim” Crichton Creamery this would still be a totally stupid and vile move.

    Words like idiot, moron, dumbass, retard, jackass etc etc don't even seem to do him justice lol

    Well that's the issue, it wasn't technically "his business". In a basic sense it was DQs business and they were basically letting him use their name, they withdrew that offer because of his breach of contract. Originally it seems they were going to just subject him to training but then a history of this behavior came to light and they decided it was best to part ways.

    From what I read, this is confirmed and he is officially out of the DQ business.

    Seems that way
    seems they were thinking just suspension, temporary closing and retraining but a history of this behavior came to light and they decided it was best to part ways. Guess that could still change cause the info is pretty scattered but thats what I gather too.
