A Chili's hostess was allegedly attacked by more than 11 women in Louisiana after she told them they couldn't sit together as a group due to the restaurant's social distancing policies, according to WAFB.
Wallace had been working at the Chili's since June to earn extra income for school.
"I couldn't believe, like over two for 25s, and three for 10s, I got attacked," noted Kelsy Wallace, who is 17-years-old.
"My general manager and my other managers tell us we cannot sit a table bigger than six because of the corona[virus]. We are supposed to separate them," Wallace said.
The policy has reportedly frustrated a number of customers since it was implemented.
"And they got upset, so the first thing I did was go get my manager," said Wallace.
Wallace said the party was still very angry after she brought her manager over to help defuse the situation. Wallace and the group then began exchanging words and the group reportedly made the first move.
"But then one girl came and she just hit me; we just started fighting. And all everybody who they was with just started hitting me, and the lady who pushed me first, she takes the wet floor sign, cocks back, and hits me with it in my eye," said Wallace.
When officers from the Baton Rouge Police Department arrived on the scene, the women had already left.
Wallace was taken to the hospital and received stitches above her eye. She also had hair pulled from her scalp along with broken nails.
Her grandmother was in disbelief when she found out what had happened.
"I couldn't believe they would do or act like that, and then I mean, grown women, to fight a 17-year-old child at her job, who's trying to work to get her graduation things together so she can go off to college," said Lorrain Byrd, Wallace's grandmother.
The Chili's manager said, "This isn't tolerated," adding "they are very sorry this happened and hopeful for a resolution soon."
Wallace said she was just trying to do her job. At Broadmoor Senior High School, Wallace is straight A student. She has worked at the Chili’s as a hostess since June to try to make some extra money. She said she will not be returning to Chili’s again.
"I was just trying to follow the rules and make sure that I wasn't going to get in trouble," she said. "Like this is just overwhelming. I just cannot believe that this happened to me of all people."
A Chili’s representative provided the following statement to WAFB:
"We care deeply for every ChiliHead and are disappointed by the incident that took place at our Baton Rouge Chili’s on August 9. We do not tolerate violent behavior in our restaurants, and are taking this incident very seriously as the safety and health of our Team Members and Guests is our top priority.
"Following this unprovoked attack, we immediately provided medical attention to our Team Member and called the local police department who is looking into this situation. We have made several attempts to contact the impacted Team Member and her family since the incident to provide support, but unfortunately have not received any response."
