Woman: Cypress restaurant said 'Black students from Prairie View don't tip', GM denies claim

CYPRESS, Texas – A Waller woman said she was kicked out of a Cypress restaurant because of her race, but the restaurant’s manager said race had nothing to do with it.

Customer's claims

Brittany Blakney said she's frustrated and hurt.

Blakney claims that she and her friends were racially profiled at Locatelli’s in Cypress.

“It was really shocking because I had never experienced anything like that before,” Blakney said.

Recent graduate

Blakney recently graduated from Prairie View A&M University and went to the restaurant to celebrate with her friends Thursday night.

She claims their server approached them and informed her he was going to add a 15% gratuity to their dinner.
