Warning: video contains racial slurs.
A Missouri waitress at Social Bar and Grill is a waitress there no longer after a racist video about “n***** hunting” surfaced on social media.
The video reportedly shows Duncan sitting on the roof of a car drinking a beer. One man says, “Are we going n***** hunting or what?” and she replies, “You get them n*****s.”
“Look at my soon-to-be sister-in-law! She looks so pretty,” he reacted.
Duncan later told the New York Daily News she “barely knew” the people she was with, that she was drunk, and that she has black friends.
“I was intoxicated. I have black friends, I have black people in my family, I didn’t mean it. I didn’t know that I was being videod,” she said. “It taught me a lot of lessons. I am so sorry.”
“I didn’t mean to hurt anybody, I was drunk. I need to seek help,” she added.
The restaurant posted about the incident online.
“Social Bar & Grill and it’s owners have recently become aware of a vile, disgusting, and offensive video made by one of its employees. Upon learning of this, Social Bar & Grill immediately terminated this employee as soon as they could reach her!” a statement on social media read. “The incendiary comments made by this employee absolutely does NOT represent the views, opinions, and policies of Social Bar & Grill and it’s owners. Nor will they be tolerated in any fashion. Social Bar & Grill and it’s owners continue to encourage and seek diversity in its restaurant.”
The trouble for Duncan may not stop there, though. The Riverfront Times reported that the U.S. Air Force is investigating her after being told Duncan recently enlisted as a reserve.
“We have been made aware of a video online of an alleged reserve Airman who made racially insensitive comments. We are looking into the matter and we appreciate this being brought to our attention,” a spokeswoman said.
The video was posted on Snapchat by Brianna Haas, but was then recorded and posted by others.
Kalle Bates posted the video on Facebook, saying, “So many things wrong with this Snapchat … drinking and driving and what’s being said. Why does this still get said, joke or not?”
