Porsha Williams Opens Up About Her Racist Encounter At LAX Restaurant -- Company Has Drastic Response
New mom Porsha Williams took to social media to share a humiliating and racist experience.
In a series of messages accompanied by a photo, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star bashed Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill at the Los Angeles International Airport.
According to Dennis McKinley's fiancée, she entered the airport restaurant, and she encountered a series of racist actions -- including an employee who threatened to call the police on her.
The reality TV star, 37, slammed Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill and its management in a message that read: “This restaurant in LAX airport is completely racist! The manager just threatens to call police on me for no reason.”
Porsha did not elaborate on the matter but did promise to address the issue as soon as she gets back to Atlanta.
She wrote: “On my flight will post the whole story when I land! 😣.”
As fans wait for more information on the matter, they are weighing in on the issue.
One person said: "It is racist af I went there with my mom and younger brother and they we're so rude to us! Porsha is not lying! It's disgusting racist acts are still happening!🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️"
Another commenter shared: "Now here she goes 🤣🤣🤣 it's an individual, not the whole company 🤦🏽I don’t believe anything comes from Porsha's mouth!!!"
This Instagram user added: "Just because you didn't experience or notice that the employees at this particular establishment were racist doesn't mean someone else didn't experience racism. Our experiences are different. Why demean hers because you didn't have that experience?"
This follower had this to share: "because you were able to make it home safely with no police issue means there’s no police officers killing innocent blacks out here just cause you were able to make it home safe. Your experience will not be the same as the next! LAX is horrible one time I went into their little market store and spent like 5 minutes looking for an employee to check out, and when I finally flagged one down, they totally ignored me. So I was like fuck it and walked out with my snacks 😂Standing with PJs motha periodt but what did they do exactly?!?"
Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill has not addressed the matter, but they have made all their social media accounts private amid the backlash.
