A woman has gained internet infamy after she was filmed going absolutely ballistic on a veteran for bringing his PTSD service dog into a restaurant.
It’s unclear at which restaurant and where this despicable display took place, but the woman spent three minutes shouting in both the faces of the handler and the dog about how disgusting it was that the service animal was in the restaurant.
“It’s nasty to me,” she can be seen screaming in the video. “There should be a separate section for a f***ing animal!”
At one point a waitress stands up for the veteran and his dog, saying, “He’s allowed because he fought for our country.” But that only set the woman off more, who also turned her rage on the staff and other diners. Watch below, but be warned: She uses extremely foul and disrespectful language.
Eventually the staff and other diners kicked the horrible woman out and locked the door behind her, but this altercation should never have happened in the first place. This man did not serve our country to come home and be treated this way. And who in the world yells at a service dog? Someone with a black hole where a heart used to be, that’s who.
Furthermore, the dog’s presence in the restaurant was perfectly legal. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a service animal is defined as an animal that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. PTSD is without question a disability, and one that can have crippling effects on those who suffer from it. To request that a veteran dealing with PTSD go without his service animal just because you don’t like it is nothing short of cruel.
Major kudos to the handler and the dog. The dog – whose name appears to be JP – remained perfectly calm and well-behaved during an extremely tense and threatening situation. In my opinion, we need more service dogs and less people like this despicable woman.
