Chipotle Yields To Pressure And Offers To Rehire Manager Who Refused To Serve Black Customers
The restaurant chain offered to rehire Dominique Moran on Monday, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.
Chipotle fired Moran on Friday after a viral video showed her refusing to serve 21-year-old Masud Ali and his friends. It starts with the manager declining to make the burritos that the men ordered.
“You got to pay because you never have money when you come in here,” Moran says. They argue with her, calling it racist that she believes they don’t have money. Moran walks away and another Chipotle employee later takes over. “We’re not making food unless you have money,” he says, mentioning that he had seen them order food in the store before without paying.

The company explained that she failed to follow its policy of making food first and then asking the customers to pay at the cash register.
Chipotle clearly didn’t expect a backlash for its decision to fire Moran.
