  1. If Angry Orchard were really serious about rectifying this mistake, they would invite the couple and their guests back for a true apology and SOMETHING! This general apology does nothing!

  2. How do we know someone didn’t claim they saw him steal a t-shirt?
    Should the security guard ignore it when told someone stole something if the alleged thief is a member of a minority group?

    1. No it’s just that they certainly don’t call the police on white people. Some whites call for nothing, shouldn’t those people be held for calling in a false police report?

  3. (To the previously poster) Seriously??? They claim the man stole it and searched him, didn’t find it and then come back to the woman search a purse that’s not big enough to hold a tee shirt and don’t find it and now they decide the guy who supposedly stole it pass it around(?) to his friends to hide so it could be stolen? Really????

  4. Being accused of stealing something when you didn’t do it is NEVER your fault, it’s the fault of whoever falsely accused you. The security guards should have satisfied themselves and left the group alone, not kept coming back more hostile. Wouldn’t happen to a white group, they’d have smiled and said sorry, our bad!

  5. We hear this all the time: the behavior of an employee doesn’t reflect the company’s values. Question: the fact that YOU hired the person means just the opposite. Further ut means your HR Department isn’t seasoned enough to see racists. That’s where people of color have the advantage. We can sniffle out racist bs in seconds. My suggestion: 1. Revamp your hiring practices complete with situational questions. 2. Add a hiring caveat and have an employee sign, acknowledging this behavior will receive prompt firing. 3. Hire a biracial interviewing team.

  6. Shit like this brings tears of total frustration to me. What humiliation! Angry Orchard should host and comp their wedding. Needs to be a huge wedding! HUGE!
