A video of Delaware woman screaming at a military veteran who brought his service dog inside a restaurant went viral. She decided to broke the silence in order to defend her behavior.
The woman stated that she doesn’t regret how loud she was, defending herself that she “reacted based on the way they reacted to me.”
Ciara Miller showed how angry she was after a military veteran appeared into the restaurant with his service dog.
“The dog’s body was about the same height as the table. Basically, the butt was sitting in front of me at the table,” she said for WTXF-TV.
Even though in the video there isn’t any racial language, Miller said that customers started shouting “derogatory racial statements” at her.
The restaurant where this situation occurred, Kathy’s Crab House in Delaware City, responded to the video in a positive manner.
The restaurant made an announcement that will sponsor a fundraiser to awareness for veterans and their service animals:
“We would like to express at this time how sorry we are over the embarrassing turn of events that occurred earlier this week in our restaurant, here in Delaware City. It is unfortunate that some of the public are not familiar with federal regulations regarding service animals, which, in fact, do permit service animals into establishments such as grocery stores, public buildings, and restaurants, giving aid and comfort to their masters in their time of need.
That being said, we would like to take what may have been perceived as a negative incident and turn this into a positive opportunity, by educating and enlightening the public about the role of service animals and how they help and serve many returning veterans who have suffered serious wounds and injuries, as well as those veterans suffering from PTSD.
So, at this time, we would like to announce that we will be sponsoring a fundraising effort for veterans and service animals thru the Montana Wounded Warriors. We would like to enlist your help as a sponsor, volunteer, or as a donor and help us enlighten and educate the public as well as to help those veterans in need.
Details need to be finalized at this time, but as they come together, we will make additional announcements to keep you apprised of our progress.”
It very clear whose side the restaurant taking in this incident.
