WAFFLE HOUSE WENDY: Former employee says she’s been 'blacklisted' by chain

"The only thing that I did get from the fight was a write-up for breaking the sugar shaker."

A former Waffle House employee in Austin, Texas who went viral after grabbing a chair in mid-air that was thrown at her during a brawl told Tucker Carlson on Fox News Tuesday night that she has been blacklisted by the chain.

The video showed customers climbing over the counter and entering the kitchen while fighting with employees and smashing sugar shakers. In one moment of the video an employee named Halie Booth, who has been nicknamed "Waffle House Wendy," demonstrated her quick reflexes by swatting away a chair that was thrown at her, causing many on social media to label her a "superhero."

Carlson said, "One Waffle House employee, with what may be the quickest reflexes ever witnessed by a waffle pressing, pancake-tossing, egg-flipping 'Rock Star,'" and compared her to "Wonder Woman with her bulletproof bracelets."

Carlson asked, "I assume you got some sort of award and a special bonus from Waffle House corporate. How big was your bonus?"

Booth replied, "I actually didn't get any bonus out of it. The only thing that I did get from the fight was a write-up for breaking the sugar shaker… them telling me, ‘we're going to write you up for the sugar shaker, but you did a good job, you know, protecting the store, making sure that you were all right.'"

"Wait, wait. You were written up for breaking a sugar shaker when someone threw a chair?" Carlson asked.

"Yes, sir," Booth replied. Two months after the incident Booth moved out of the city and told Carlson that the managers told her she was "always welcome back at that store. And, you know, we're glad to have you back. You always have a place here."

However, six months later, when she applied to work at another Waffle House in North Carolina, "I had found out that I was blacklisted and on the do not hire list because someone threw a chair."

Carlson asked what started the fight to which Booth replied, "All I know is that they were extremely drunk or at least intoxicated, and it was a slow night. I was the only employee and there was about 30 to 40 people in there that I had to cook for by myself."
