Diner Politics 10/5: Dunkin Donuts Incident


A video showing a Dunkin Donuts employee dumping water on a homeless man sleeping in the restaurant, as another employee laughs in the background, quickly went viral on social media earlier this week. 

The incident prompted passionate, often angry, responses, as well as an outpouring of support for the homeless community. 

The two employees have since been fired, and the man who dumped the water has publicly apologized, but some say – that’s not enough. 

We went to Anderson’s Cozy Corner in Elmira to hear your reactions. Watch the video above to see what your neighbors had to say.
