Woman buys Taco Bell for 20 homeless people, restaurant tells them to leave

Shannon Gridley of Louisville, KY treated 20 homeless people to dinner at Taco Bell. After purchasing the meals, the restaurant told everyone to leave. She now accuses Taco Bell of discrimination.

According to WHIOTV7:

“The group walked in around 7:30 p.m. and ordered. Gridley said they were told they could not use the bathroom. Five people in the group who had gotten their food were told they could not sit and eat it. 

Gridley asked to talk to a manager but no one showed. Rather, they were told to leave the restaurant even as some of the people in the group were still ordering. 

“It is dehumanizing. They wouldn’t even let them in the bathroom to wash their hands before they eat,” Gridley told WHAS. “It was purely because they’re homeless that they were being discriminated against.”

Taco Bell released a statement to WHAS11:

“Taco Bell is committed to creating a space that’s welcoming and safe for all people, while maintaining an environment free of discrimination or harassment. The franchise organization that owns and operates this location is looking into the matter and will be proactively re-training its team members on its policies. Knowing that homelessness is an unfortunate issue in this area especially, the franchisee looks forward to connecting with local organizations to see how they can help and work better together in the future.”
