Aretha Franklin is a legend in her own right, so when a Johnny Rockets employee screamed at her on Tuesday, she deserved to be fired! If you yell at ARETHA FRANKLIN, then you should be immediately let go regardless of the situation. Who’s with us?
While dining out at a Johnny Rockets in Ontario, Canada on Tuesday, the soul singing legend got yelled at for beginning to eat her take out in the restaurant itself. In a statement, Aretha called the employee “very rude, unprofessional and nasty”. She stopped for dinner after performing her sold out show at the Artpark Outdoor Amphitheater.
A spokeswoman for the Johnny Rockets franchise said that the fast food chain is apologetic for the actions of a “new and very young employee”. In addition, the spokeswoman said that the owner has talked to the staff about the restaurant’s takeout policies.
After turning 72-years-old on March 25th, the legendary singer expressed wishes for her family to secure record deals of their own. She revealed, “I’m looking for a record deal for my granddaughter Victorie and my son Kecalf and Jordan, who is going to school for the arts at the end of the year, so he’s on the way.”
Can you imagine a world where someone, even young people, who don’t know who Aretha Franklin is? It just doesn’t seem imaginable, does it? Besides that, who would let their employees treat anyone like Aretha was treated, not even because of who she is — but as a person?!?
What do you think of the matter?
