A woman was charged with a felony after yelling racial slurs and throwing a Whopper at a Burger King employee because her tomato was 'too thick'
cteh@businessinsider.com (Cheryl Teh) 4 hrs ago

A resident of a Florida retirement community angry over the thickness of a tomato was charged with a felony after she hurled racial slurs and a sandwich at a Black fast food-chain employee.

According to records from the Wildwood Florida Police Department seen by the Villages News, Judith Ann Black, 77, was dining at a Burger King in the nearby Trailwinds Village last Friday when she confronted an employee about her unsatisfactory sandwich.

According to the News, Black was angry over the thickness of the tomato slice on her Whopper, and the Burger King employee who was unnamed in the report, tried to calm Black down - but Black threw the Whopper at the employee's back.

Black then stormed out, but not before spouting several expletives including the N-word, calling the employee a "stupid Black b----," according to the police report seen by Villages News. The outlet verified this with the manager and another worker at the Trailwinds Burger King, as well as a customer who witnessed the exchange.

1. Fool. I'd LOVE a thick tomato slice!

Ah, but it wasn't really about the tomato, was it.

The police record referenced by the Villages News also indicated that Black's use of racial slurs altered "the charge of battery from a misdemeanor of the first degree to a felony of the third degree under Florida State Statute 775.085." This statute is known as the "hate crime statute," which increases the minimum and maximum penalties that a judge could impose.


Now let's watch for Scott and DeSantis to make their little "injustice" speeches...

..IF the lady is nuts, why isn't she dealt with?...These kind of events happen all over, & most are

No taste! I love tomatoes and these are the worst I’ve had.

However, no excuse for this woman to do as she did. I understand Alzheimer’s does change you. My great aunt never curse in her life. But once she had Alzheimer’s, she cursed like a Sailor. However, never any racial statements.

Even WITHOUT the racial charge attached, it should be a felony. It is literally assault and battery.

20. I hear you, but we have these things called fingers.

Because of the new plastic-like, almost impenetrable tomato skins, I've been known to open up my Whopper With Cheese and break the tomato slice into bits. Sometimes, the tomato skin has to be discarded because it's a potential choking hazard.

give you the excuse to behave like a 4 year old, or

give you an excuse to fly into a racist tirade, or

throw food around.


One can always ask nicely for the emloyees to fix the problem with the tomatoes.

42. Some people are just flat out mean. Not demented, not mentally impaired.

Well, unless you define mental impairment as racism, which it actually is when you sit down and analyze it. It's been my observational experience that old age actually doesn't change a person so much as it reveals one.

On another note, don't fast food places use slicers like those in delis? I find it hard to fathom employees having to stand in one spot and manually slice tomatoes (or onions for that matter) with a chef's knife.
