The manager of an Evansville, Indiana, Olive Garden is out of a job after allegedly complying with a customer’s request not be served by African-American staff members.

The incident unfolded last Saturday at the eatery on Green River Road. Amira Donahue was the hostess on duty at the time when the woman’s request for hot water soon took an ugly turn.

“She asked for a server that wasn’t black and the manager complied,” Donahue told local station WEHT, adding that the customer proceeded “screaming at me in front of all the customers.”

Two other Black employees were also targeted in the incident.

Donahue said she doesn’t agree with her manager’s willingness to fulfill the customer’s racist request, saying things should’ve been handled differently.
