Buffalo Wild Wings Employees Fired For Reseating People Based On Skin Color

Multiple employees are out of a job at a Naperville Buffalo Wild Wings after some customers claimed they were asked to move to another table because of the color of their skin.

The sports bar franchise says the workers involved were fired following an internal investigation into the October 26th incident.Justin Vahl and Marcus Riley said they visited the Buffalo Wild Wings with a group of adults and children after a youth basketball tournament, to celebrate one of the kids’ birthday.

As tables were set up for their party, Vahl was asked his ethnicity because one of the restaurant’s regular customers seated nearby “doesn’t want black people sitting near him.” Then, a manager asked their group to move to another location because a nearby customer didn't want to sit near black people.

Vahl, Riley and their group left. Vahl’s wife later shared a post about the incident and Riley reached out to the restaurant’s corporate office. That’s when the investigation started.
