Disturbing video captures a white woman flipping out on a group of black soldiers at a Virginia IHOP after she offered to help pay for their meal — but then accused them of stealing her money.
One of the four soldiers from Fort Belvoir who ate at the nearby pancake joint recorded the incident and posted it on TikTok.
Fort Belvoir spokesman Joe Richard told the Army Times that the unidentified woman put $30 on the group’s table to pay for their meal, “which is not uncommon when people meet military personnel.”
He said “it’s a gesture as a way to thank them for their service.”
But before the woman left the restaurant, she suddenly took $24 back and left just $6 on the table.
She then returned moments later and started abusing the group of soldiers, Richard said.
“She became antagonistic, claiming the soldiers had taken her money and directed racially charged language at the soldiers,” he told the news outlet.
“You guys are … s—bags!” she said. “Are you the thin blue line, are you BLM, are you Antifa?”
The woman proceeds to sit down at their booth and block one of the soldiers from moving, the video shows.
The soldiers ask her to leave them alone before another patron — a non-uniformed man identified as a retired airman — steps in and tells her to leave the restaurant.
“Is this your restaurant? Motherf—–, I will f—– drop you! You wanna go? You wanna go?” she is heard yelling at the man.
“Oh? Drop me? Really?” he answers.
“We are committed to fostering an environment of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in our force. A view of the video will show the Soldiers maintained their composure and military bearing throughout this shocking incident,” Richard told The Hill.
“The Garrison has the incident under internal review,” he added.
IHOP told the outlet in a statement that the company “and its franchisees do not condone the statements made by the guest in this video, and will not tolerate racism, bigotry or harassment of any kind.
“For more than 60 years, we have strived to create a warm and hospitable dining experience for all guests, and this isolated incident is not reflected of that ongoing commitment,” the chain added in the statement.
