A Dunkin’ Donuts owner called the police on a black customer after arguing over the company’s free Wi-Fi policy.
On Facebook, Tirza Wilbon White posted the conversation she recorded with franchise owner Christina Cabral at a Dunkin’ Donuts in Fairfax, Va., on Nov. 7, minutes after arriving at the store. White had frequented the store for the past two years, purchasing coffee and working on her laptop while using the company’s free Wi-Fi service.
Dunkin’ Donuts owner states this is not a racial issue. This is a issue of security for all customers. They do not allow loitering in their place of business. Customers should buy their food or drink first then they can utilize the facilities.
White stated, “In her mind, I was the ‘people’ who loiter. In reality, I was a customer in her store, until yesterday, and I have been for more than 2 years.”
