4. Consumerist has now learned that Applebee’s fired the server after the receipt hit the front page of Reddit.
Chelsea spoke to Consumerist about the fallout after she posted the receipt to Reddit:
“I originally posted the note as a lighthearted joke… I thought the note was insulting, but it was also comical. I posted it to Reddit because I thought other users would find it entertaining.”
The original photo Chelsea posted contained the pastor’s signature. After it began to go viral, the customer contacted Applebee’s and demanded that not only Chelsea be fired, but everyone who worked at that location be fired.
Chelsea told Consumerist that she was just trying to blow off some steam by anonymously posting it to Reddit, not lose her job. Before posting the receipt, she had worked there without incident.
