Hatboro, PA – In an unexpected turn of events, the woman who was filmed making racist slurs towards a pizzeria ended up helping to raise the profile of the business by bringing attention to it.
Recently, a video went viral in which 55-year-old Rita Bellew was seen scolding an employee at Amy’s Pizzeria in Hatboro, Pennsylvania for having a Spanish-language television station playing at the restaurant.
Of course, most “American” cable outlets carry Spanish stations as part of their channel lineup and have done so for many years.
“You want to have Spanish on your TV?” Bellew asked the worker.
“What’s wrong with that?” the worker replied.
“What’s wrong with that is you’re not an American, dude,” she shot back.
Thankfully, Bellew’s actions are now under criminal investigation for ethnic intimidation and harassment.
Even better, the response to this situation has been overwhelming, with locals and even people living overseas all rallying together to show their support for the restaurant.
“A lot of people, they drive an hour, two hours just to come over here and buy a slice of pizza or say Hi,” Quiñonez explained to Delco today. “That’s a really good thing.”
