Bernice King is urging the public to boycott Waffle House after a disturbing video of a black man being choked and body slammed at the restaurant surfaced on Facebook.

The daughter of civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr. and CEO of The King Center posted the story about a North Carolina police officer choking and slamming Anthony Wall, a 22-year-old, unarmed black man at the restaurant on May 5 and suggested the public should stop patronizing the chain that has been the scene of several racist incidents in recent weeks.

“Family, let’s stay out of Waffle House until the corporate office legitimately and seriously commits to 1. discussion on racism, 2. employee training and 3. other plans to change; and until they start to implement changes,” Bernice King posted.

According to reports, Wall and his little sister had an argument with Waffle House employees, but it’s unclear what the argument was about or who called the police.

Wall shared a video of himself being choked and body slammed by the police officer on his Facebook page.
