2 black women allegedly refused service at Nori Japan in Viral TikTok

Two black women allegedly refused to serve at Nori Japan in Aurora, Illinois due to their race in a viral TikTok. User @labellamonay shared a video of the employee appearing to discriminate against her and her sister, which has received more than 1 million views as of Wednesday.

“Sorry, did you tell my sister you wouldn’t serve her because she’s black?” TikToker said in the video.

“I [don’t] like her. Let’s go. Not here anymore,” said the employee. However, English does not appear to be the native language of Asians.

“Because she’s black? Cause other black people took your food and didn’t pay, you won’t serve my sister? ‘ she inquired.

The man allegedly refused to serve the couple because another Negro didn’t pay for their food earlier that day. TikToker continues to confront the man for discriminatory behavior.

“You cannot do that, sir. That is discrimination. You can’t tell her you’re not going to serve her because she’s black because of what someone else did today,” she said.

“You don’t have to pay,” he seemed to reply.

“What does that have to do with us? I don’t know what you’re talking about, sir. We are not affiliated with them,” she said.

The woman then locates the restaurant at the Fox Valley Mall food court to blame the man. “I thought I would never have to do something like this,” she said.

“Well, what’s worse, someone we don’t know doesn’t pay you $5 or we sue you for discrimination?” she asked him.

“I don’t know. Same face,” he said.

“Oh, because we all have the same face?” she asked.

“Yes, this is 2021. Man refuses to serve black customers. Let’s blow this up so the world can see,” caption user TikTok, shared on December 26.

Some users in the comments defended the employee and sympathized with where he came from.

“Leave the old man alone!” said one user.

“He is wrong but I also understand him that this man is hurting and hurting. Understanding needs to come from both sides,” another said.

“He has the right to refuse service,” said a third.

User @labellamonay responded to this comment in a follow-up video quoting the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

“It’s really scary that a lot of you don’t understand what this means, and it means you can’t refuse service to anyone based on these reasons. And that’s what this guy did,” she said.

However, many others have criticized the users who are defending the man.

“I don’t understand how you are all looking at obvious discrimination and choosing to protect this man,” one user said.

“I’m half Asian and I’m sick of who I am. Defeat people like him just because he’s old and doesn’t speak much English. He’s a grown man,” another said.

In support of the TikToker and her sister, some took to Yelp to leave negative reviews of the establishment due to the man’s behaviour. As a result, Yelp has temporarily disabled the ability to post reviews for that position.

Daily Dot reached out to users @labellamonay via Instagram messages and Fox Valley Mall through its website. We were unable to reach Nori Japan for comment.
