Alexis Brison was having dinner with her friend, Asia Hardy, at an Applebee’s at the Independence Center on Saturday when they were approached by a police officer, a mall security guard and the Applebee’s manager, WDAF reported. They spoke to the women about an incident that happened Friday, where two women who apparently resembled them left without paying, WDAF reported.
"We have not been here before. We're just trying to enjoy our dinner," Brison said in a video of the encounter that she posted to Facebook.
“After being mocked, humiliated, and embarrassed we were asked to pay for our food, leave, and not come back,” Brison wrote on Facebook.
"This is what black people have to deal with, if you want to know," Brison tells the policeman during the video.
"We have not been here!" Hardy repeatedly tells one officer, growing more agitated as the video continues.
