  • Dairy Queen owner proudly admits he called mother children racial slurs news Dairy Queen

Dairy Queen said it plans to terminate the rights of a franchise owner in Zion who was accused of calling a suburban Chicago mother and her children racial slurs.

Crichton also told the officer he was "fed up with black people" and continued to freely use the slur in the conversation.

When asked about the incident, the police report notes, Crichton "boastfully told me he would be happy to go to jail over the issue and proudly admitted to calling Ford a slur".

Dairy Queen initially said Crichton would undergo sensitivity training, AP noted. DQ called Crichton's actions "inexcusable, reprehensible, and unacceptable", and Crichton himself apologized via a DQ statement, though protesters called his mea culpa insincere.

Ford called the police, who showed up on the scene and confronted Crichton about his derogatory comments.

The owner of a Dairy Queen in IL has lost his franchise agreement after comments he reportedly made to a customer.

Incidents of racism have remained prevalent long after the Civil Rights movement drew to a close, but in recent years social media has provided a new outlet for individuals to shine a light on such behavior, providing a way to document or recount them, and giving victims a chance to garner support.

Although Crichton later denied the story, he issued an apology through a Dairy Queen statement Friday. "And when he came to the window he handed me five dollars and then proceeded to tell me that if he was the one taking my order, he wouldn't even have served me", Ford told the Chicago Tribune. When the police arrived, they found Ford in her auto crying. "She asked me: 'Mommy, we n--?'"

Two days after the alleged incident, the official Dairy Queen Facebook account informed those who'd complained on behalf of Ford the Zion Dairy Queen location had "been closed until further notice". When owner Jim Crichton refused to correct the order, she asked for refund.

However, after posting a status on Facebook with the number and address of the location, Ford began spearheading a protest against the establishment. "What I said was not appropriate and is something I can not take back".

"I [told her] some people are just mean. I reached out to Miss Ford to tell her that this does not represent the diverse community of Zion". While this case seems to be resolved, Ford's attorney Renea Amen said that they may still take Dairy Queen to court because others have come forward about their mistreatment at the restaurant. "Some people don't have good hearts".
