    It's easy to block people on social media. In real life, not so much. On Wednesday, Spencer reacted to her story making national news by writing, “Now I’m waiting for The Ellen Show to hit me up. Hi, Ellen, please notice me. I want to spread love and acceptance on your show.”

    But Ellen Degeneres, if you remember from last week, came under fire for being cordial toward someone she disagreed with — former President George W. Bush — not for refusing to serve or befriend someone she disagreed with.

    They are paying customers and all have a right to be served. She was sent home, unfortunately she took to social media and that is what got her fired.

    Lol actually.
    She was fired for 1. Walking off the job and 2. BLASTING customers online....that's bad for business. She got what she deserved. Should have just shut up and done her job, THIS is exactly why your job was to SERVE PEOPLE not get pulled into their political or cultural discussions EVEN IF they ask you your opinion.

    Says on the story that it was homecoming so had MORE than the usual customers and weren't going to just switch servers which means switching areas of the eatery completely to make this snowflake feel better. Don't like dealing with ALL walks of life then get in a different line of work.

    Instead of switching table for table, the manager sends her home leaving him one server short? The managers action was stupid.

    No he said she COULD leave and so she did...he didn't demand she did. She should have stopped whining to begin with. Ignore the customers discussions unless its about the service,food,or drinks.

    When I was a teenager, the first night I was ever drinking in a bar, this She-Male came walking into the joint. The bartender immediately pointed at the door, and said "not in here".

    Made sense, for the protection of everyone. Suppose some guy picks up on the she-male without realizing that its a man. Can happen when people are drinking. Could easily break into violence.

    Further, no Normative joint wants to get the reputation as a homo hangout.
