Snowflake adult does not like being referred to as white
What he objected to was a perfectly innocent and objective description
FORMER American Idol contestant Bo Bice has spoken out about copping what he claimed was “racist behaviour”.
The singer was at Popeye’s, a fast food restaurant at Atlanta International Airport, when one of the employees went to give his order to a different person. The singer then claimed her co-worker said: “He already got his, that white boy there.”
“The three ladies behind the counter asked whose food it was,” Bo Bice said in an interview with Fox 5 in Atlanta. “Just when I turned around, one of them said ‘that white boy.’”
The husband and father of four said the incident was shocking.
“If tables had been turned and I used something as insensitive like that ... I would be boycotted, people wouldn’t buy my albums,” Bice said.
Bice said all he wanted from the corporation was an apology, but he never got it.
The worker who said “white boy’ has now been suspended after Bice complained on his social media accounts about her, and even posted a photo of the two women working along with the name of one on his Facebook page.
During the interview the singer broke down in tears.
