Watch Woman Lose Her S**t Over Service Dog in Diner, Claims She was Called the N-Word by Customers

A Delaware woman has become internet-famous after she was recorded hurling obscenities at customers and staff at Kathy’s Crab House in an incident involving a service dog. The woman, Ciara Miller, has since claimed that she was reacting to having racial slurs hurled at her by the restaurant’s staff and customers after she objected to the dog’s presence.

This is really difficult to dissect because the video only captures the end of the incident. Miller is seen yelling at a woman off-camera, calling her a bitch and saying she found being seated next to a dog disgusting. Miller then leaves, but comes back when an off-camera woman calls her a bitch as she’s going out the door.

It’s worth mentioning that as the video starts, Miller says “I’m leaving because the food is nasty and there’s a dog.” While federal law dictates restaurants must allow service dogs to accompany disabled patrons, at no point on the video does she demand the service dog, who is there with a veteran who has PTSD, be forced to leave, just that she finds having to be seated by it to be disgusting.

Miller talked to WTXF Philadelphia and explained her side of the story.

“The dog’s body was about the same height as the table. Basically, the butt was sitting in front of me at the table,” Ciara Miller, the woman seen yelling in the video, explained.

Miller says she went with her family to Kathy’s Crab House in Delaware City last week and was unable to eat comfortably with the veteran’s Service Dog right there.

So here’s where things get interesting. Miller claims that staff and patrons immediately started making racial slurs when she complained about the dog.

“6 or 7 people yelling out, (expletive) you, get that (expletive) out of here, making derogatory racial statements,” Miller claimed.

This was not on the video, so I expect the restaurant will absolutely deny any racial prejudice or slurs, right?

FOX 29 contacted the restaurant for comment on the claim that staff members used racial slurs, and we were told “no comment” and referred to a statement they published on Facebook. The restaurant also announced they would be organizing a fundraiser for veterans to raise awareness.

Like, I’m going to be honest, that’s not the response you make if no one called this young woman the n-word. That’s the statement you make when you’re afraid if you deny it video of you calling her the n-word will surface. “Let’s not focus on whether or not this woman was agitated because we had been calling her the n-word, let’s just focus on raising awareness for veterans.”

So here’s why I’m not going to make fun of Miller, who I do believe was overreacting to the situation, which could have been rectified by simply seating her in a different section. She was clearly provoked before the video started. I can’t say if that provocation was racially motivated or based without any evidence, but it’s clear from the video that the incident started over her trying to leave and being attacked for it by someone, probably the woman who keeps calling her a bitch when she leaves. While her actions are overblown for being seated next to a service dog, if she did have racial epithets hurled at her, she showed an amazing amount of restraint, and we don’t know which one it is.
