Man sues fast-food chain over lack of hash browns, says his civil rights were violated

A North Carolina man has filed a lawsuit against the fast-food chain Hardee's, claiming one of its locations violated his civil rights when employees did not give him enough hash browns.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Tommy Martin, who is black, said the May 2018 incident left him upset and gave him cibophobia, a fear of food.

Martin says the chain's Belmont location withheld some of its Hash Rounds when he ordered them as a side with his breakfast platter.

The paper reported a typical order of the side contains 12 Hash Rounds. Martin claims he only received two in his order.

Martin told the Charlotte Observer he believes the incident was racially motivated because he was the only nonwhite person inside the restaurant.

“It’s not a money issue,” Martin told the paper. “I just want to be treated fairly.”

According to the lawsuit, the cashier attempted to rectify the issue of the missing Hash Rounds, before a manager allegedly told Martin, "That (sic) what you get." The manager did, however, refund his purchase, Martin said.

Martin claims the location violated his 14th Amendment rights.

“Got home with tear in mine (sic) eye,” Martin says in the lawsuit. “I have got to do something.”

In a statement released to HuffPost, Hardee's said: “Hardee’s is aware of the lawsuit filed this week which alleges that a guests’ civil rights were violated while visiting one of our independently owned and operated franchised locations over a year ago. As a company we take these allegations seriously, however, as this lawsuit is pending against a franchisee, we have no additional comment on the matter at this time.”

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
