Waffle House encounters fights pretty frequently and Twitter users have at least one fight to showcase every week. One tweet read, "I love going to Waffle House. Every trip is a surprise. Are the cooks going to fight? How aggressive is my server going to be? Will my order be correct? Who knows? One thing I know though, the food ALWAYS slaps."

Another tweet read, "I’ve never been to a Waffle House but it just don’t sound like the type of place you go for a steak. Like fights, black & milds, e & j and even a paternity test, but a steak? Risky."

In recent past, similar incidents have taken place in stores like Lowe's and Robeks. Xuna Hu, an Asian-American woman, was shopping at Lowe's in Springfield, Illinois, on January 17, when a White customer allegedly yelled at her, "Go back to your country," according to Hu's Facebook post. The customer made these remarks after purchasing one of the fire pits that Hu had been eyeing.

A White Lowe's employee named David can be seen in the video asking Hu to delete the video and referred to her as "combative" and "hostile". David also threatened to return the item she had purchased. The Asian-American woman is currently seeking an apology, and many people are rallying behind her on social media. According to the State Journal-Register, Illinois state Rep Theresa Mah started the petition after watching Hu's video, and it now has over 17,500 signatures on Change.org.

In another instance, James Iannazzo, a wealth management advisor and managing director, bought a smoothie from a Robeks franchise in Fairfield, Connecticut and returned thirty minutes later in a rage. He claimed that his child was allergic to peanuts in the drink. A viral video shows the 48-year-old yelling at the employees and demanding to know who made the drink. When the video went viral, James received a lot of backlash on social media. Merril Lynch, the wealth management firm for which he worked, fired him, stating, "Our company does not tolerate behavior of this kind. We immediately investigated and have taken action. This individual is no longer employed at our firm."
