Additional links and info: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.
