Earlier this week, a Texas cop says he was refused service at a Wendy’s restaurant because he was dressed in uniform.
The Fort Worth Police Department patrol supervisor Sgt. Marc Povero said he entered the location at Trail Lake Drive at about 6 p.m., when he said the employees turned their backs and walked away, according to police spokesman Povero.
According to Povero, he was the only customer in the restaurant and that most of the employees stayed in the kitchen until he left!
The Fort Worth Police Department chose to respond with their official Twitter account. “@Wendys at Trail Lake and I20 would not serve one of our uniformed officers tonight? #whatsthebeef” the account posted.
Wendy’s subsequently took to the social media platform, as well.
“@fortworthpd We are aware the incident and are abruptly handling the situation. Could you please DM us, so we can gather more info,” the post read.
By Friday afternoon, it appeared Wendy’s and the Fort Worth Police Department had mended any potentially damaged fences.
“Thank you to @Wendys for meeting w/us today & confirming your support for law enforcement We appreciate it. #wendysbackstheblue,” the police department tweeted.
This is not the first such incident reported in recent months, in fact, police departments nationwide have mentioned, that they too, have been refused service because of their job at other national food chains.
