Last week, a couple went to a pizzeria in New York where they were attacked by racist anti-Obama employees after complaining about a food order.
The African American couple, Willie and Alfie Marshall, told the employees that something was wrong with their slices of pizza, which is led to a brawl that landed both of them in the hospital.
Instead of giving them a refund or a new slice, the employees stomped the couple out along with spewing racial slurs at them.
Willie told CBS:
‘He stomped me in my face and then he made a racial slur – I don’t want to say it on the air, I don’t want to do that,’ Mr Marshall said, adding that a worker shouted, ‘This is for Obama.’
‘We don’t deserve this, and nobody else deserves this either.”
The pizzeria employees were charged with misdemeanor assault over the incident, and now there are protests being led for the couple.
The defense attourney said in a statement:
“The allegation by Mr. and Mrs. Marshall that the incident on November 24 was quote a racial attack or an Obama backlash is completely untrue.”
The lawyer for the employees claims that the Marshalls initiated the fight by throwing a jar of Parmesean cheese first, and that no racial slurs were used.
