"Buffalo Wild Wings values an inclusive environment and has zero-tolerance for discrimination of any kind".
Police responded to the Buffalo Wild Wings around 2 p.m. for a report of a shooting.
A lawsuit against Buffalo Wild Wings has not yet been filed, and Lambert said there would be no need to do so if the company agreed to speak with the group and admit "this should have never happened". Vahl said most of the members of her party were African American.
Vahl and her group claimed the seats, nonetheless.
At that, despite having already ordered appetizers and drinks, the group chose to leave.
A few moments later, while Vahl and her group were trying to order, an employee came up to them and said that the seats they were in had been previously reserved and so they would have to move.
In a statement to Business Insider, a Buffalo Wild Wings representative said the company had "terminated the employees involved" in the episode, following an internal review. As they were leaving he fired approximately six shots towards that person and Buffalo Wild Wings.
"We believe that we can fully and positively address the requests that were made this morning", spokeswoman Claire Kudlata said in an email.
"Of course, we don't give him the satisfaction and told the host we'll sit where they set us up", Vahl wrote. "It's real and it still happens".
"We have been in direct communication with the group of guests to understand their account of what happened and have offered our deepest apologies for any unacceptable behaviour", the person said in a statement.
Lambert questioned how the company would enforce that. He also demanded that it thoroughly question prospective employees to make sure they know how to properly deal with "racially charged situations" before they're hired and establish a hotline for any employee who witnesses such an incident in the future. "It's an open question because we need to maintain dialogue".
"We are hoping, in fact, we are expecting that they will be good corporate citizens and take the opportunity to do the right thing ..."
