Applebee's Closes Restaurant After Facebook Post Alleging Racial Profiling Goes Viral

By Mark Pygas

Alexis Brison of St. Louis, Missouri, was shopping at the Independence Center in Independence, Missouri, with a friend over the weekend when the pair decided to grab a bite to eat at the Applebee’s in the mall. About an hour into the dinner, the pair were approached by a police officer, a mall cop, and the restaurant manager.  

The two women were accused of not paying for chicken the day before. The evidence? According to Brison, the manager said that the member of staff remembered the people who ate and ran were a "skinny girl" and "a girl who wore makeup." 

Brison decided to film the encounter, which she believes to be racial profiling.
