“Chili’s” Army Vet Moves Out Of His House Over Death Threats

According to BOSSIP:

The story of Army veteran Ernest Walker has been emblematic of the way many vets in this country have been disrespected, especially soldiers of color.

After suffering public humiliation at the hands of a shady Chili’s customer and a d-bag manager, Walker has now been twice victimized by death threats after his story went BIG online.

According to the DallasNews, Walker has had to leave the comfort of his own home after news reports revealed his contact info and address:

After a news report aired, Walker received phone calls from restricted numbers saying “I know where you live” and threats on Facebook, Merritt said. Walker is filing a report with the Ovilla Police Department, Merritt said.

The veteran is still involved in conversations with the restaurant and its parent company, Brinker International, to address the incident, Merritt said. Walker would like Chili’s to help with a campaign to feed veterans, the attorney said.

“We haven’t made a specific monetary demand, and we would like to go beyond a purely financial or fiduciary settlement,” Merritt said.

Damn shame.
