Last week Upham’s Pizza shop in Dorchester became the latest victim of the fake hate crime trend that’s been sweeping the nation. It all began when a woman named Melly Barros posted a video on Instasnap alleging that two racist cashiers threw a pizza in her face:
“I grabbed a slice of pizza, a soda, and a brownie. The brownie wasn’t good, so I went to the cashier and asked to exchange the brownie for a cookie and she replied rudely and said it’s not a piece of clothing and you can’t exchange it. So I went up to a white male working there and he said, “people of your kind, because I’m black, like to exchange shit.”
First of all, if the brownie isn’t good then tough shit. You don’t get to buy something, tell them you don’t like it, and then get something else new for free. That’s not how a business works. Secondly, nowhere in that video do you hear the cashier say “people of your kind.” But she said it so it must be true.
She also said this:
“I tossed a pizza on the counter and I left and she was calling us pieces of dog shit. Me and my friend left and I was standing next to the door and I turned around to close the door completely and all I saw was the cashier throwing a pizza at my face and she’s laughing and making fun of me. That’s why I reached into my bag and grabbed my cranberry juice.”
“After I was speaking to the male about how I didn’t like the brownie he started pulling out his phone and recording us and my friend said, “do you wanna take this outside?” And he was like, oh here we go again with the black death threats.”
But yet in the video you can clearly hear the white cashier say, “Here we go with the death threats. Customer making death threats.”
Meanwhile, the guy in the video is whining that he’s a customer. This is why I’m against the dumb American slogan, “the customer is always right.” Nah, usually they’re wrong. This is just a way to make spoiled Americans happy because you’re afraid of the blowback a business owner would get for actually standing up for themselves.
Her video went viral in the community and instead of asking questions activists did what they do best – tried to destroy a small business. This time they did it by hanging libelous signs outside of Upham’s, alleging that they were racist and that the pepperoni came from a rat’s ass.
Me and my roommates, we out here getting it, we doing it for the culture.
Evidently “the culture” means race baiting and harming hard working people.
But, what if her allegations were true? Did the racist cashier really throw a pizza in her face as she tried to peacefully walk out of the pizza shop?
Oh, would you look at that – her friend spit on the male cashier and then she threw a pizza at the face of the female cashier, before the female cashier justifiably threw the pizza back at her. This after the “customers” tried got mad because they couldn’t get a free cookie and began to threaten the employees.
But that didn’t stop the woke community from spreading her lies. This random dude shared her video and got almost 1,000 retweets.

I’ve reached out to this young lady and she got back to me saying thanks for the support and spreading her message! I told her if there’s anything we can do to further support her in a effort to spread more awareness to let me know I’ll keep y’all updated

This led to a harassment campaign against Upham’s.

Which is what SJWs always do, because they don’t understand the difference between a boycott and harassment.
In order for the community to show that they stand against racism they did exactly what Martin Luther King urged his followers to do – “order mad shit and don’t pick it up.”
I say Everyone in Boston should call Uphams Pizza AND ORDER MAD SHIT AND DONT PICK IT UP 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Then came the calls for no more white owned pizza shops in Dorchester.
dead ass Fuck Uphams House Of Pizza and any white family owned business that thinks it’s okay to come to Dorchester and be racist bitches to our people.. We won’t tolerate being disrespected in our own home. PERIOD.

Yo, someone needs to open a black owned restaurant in place of uphams pizza when they get shit down. Make it a landmark & keep our presence ‼️

Nothing racist about that y’all!!
Keep in mind, Upham’s has to deal with these shitheads causing trouble like this all the time. They even made World Star last year:

And that’s never a good thing.
As you can imagine, the owners have to deal with shitty people like this all the time, many of whom have an unearned sense of entitlement.
“I don’t like this brownie, give me a new one.”
How bout, fuck off? That’s the kind of business that gets my support.
But even though the video clearly and unequivocally exonerates the two employees, and proves that the customers were LYING and race baiting when no racism took place, and even though this incident damaged the business in the worst way possible, the SJWs who run the City of Boston acted like both sides were at fault and set up a mediation. The result? Both sides took blame and the employee who had a pizza thrown in her face by a customer was fired.
State Rep. Liz Miranda (5th Suffolk) and city officials say they’ve brokered a deal between Uphams House of Pizza on Columbia Road and a teenager who got into a beef with an employee there that could calm a tense situation that had spread into the community via videos on social media and sparked calls for a boycott of the 30-year-old pizza place. As part of a 2 1/2-hour mediation session between owner Georgio Papadopoulos and the 16-year-old, both sides agreed to write public statements admitting a share of blame for a Jan. 16 incident in which a pizza slice was flung after what began as a simple disagreement over the girl trying to exchange a brownie she did not feel was good after she took a bite out of it. The session was organized by Miranda and representatives from Boston Police, Mayor Walsh’s office and Uphams Corner Main Street to try to bring resolution between the son of Greek immigrants and the daughter of Cape Verdean immigrants.
Both sides took blame!!?? She completely made up a story, spread that lie on social media, used it to destroy an immigrant owned small business, and then took down all her videos once it was proven that she was a liar.
Papadopoulos agreed to fire the worker involved in the spat and to have city specialists come in to “implement sensitivity and customer service training at our establishment.”
LOL. I no longer feel bad for this guy. What a gutless coward to cave into the mob like that. Way to throw your employee, who probably doesn’t get paid that much and has to deal with douchebags like this every day, under the bus.
Then he did this:
Papadopoulos also agreed not to seek criminal charges against the 16-year-old and the friend with her that day – whom he said spat at the employee – after she admitted she had made some things up in a video she posted. “We understand how critical this point in their lives is and how criminalizing them could change the trajectory of their lives forever.”
See that right there? That’s the SJW effect. We can’t perpetuate the “school to prison pipeline,” which really means, “We’re gonna let kids break the law because holding them accountable will predestine them to a life of crime.”
The worst part about this is that Upham’s agreed to make their employees that cultural sensitivity training, at the request of these gutless SJW politicians.
Miranda wrote on her Facebook page: “Moving forward, I will connect the young people with youth leaders so that they work to improve youth/ community relations and the business will continue to work closely with the Uphams Corner Main Street program and the office of Neighborhood Services around Customer Service and cultural sensitivity training recommended by us.
Cultural sensitivity? If your culture includes demanding free shit and throwing pizzas at employees then your culture sucks. It’s not society’s job to learn about your culture and react differently based on that. It’s up to you to act like a civilized human being instead of a ratchet d-bag.
Of course the Dorchester Reporter, which led a campaign to get the Boston Police to stop following us on Twitter, pandering Marty Walsh, and a pizza shop owner who’s afraid of the mob, tried to “both sides” this story. They made the girl sound like some beacon of hope, and wouldn’t stop talking about how good her grades were. Meanwhile this is her boyfriend (the one who spit in the employee’s face):
She seems lovely.
The three terrible aspects of American culture that were:
- Out of control customers think they’re always “right” and can treat poorly paid employees like they’re not human beings.
- People with agendas will instinctively believe anyone who says they’re a victim of racism because it reinforces their agenda.
- Pandering politicians, too afraid to hold people accountable for shitty behavior, will enable more shitty behavior by blaming other people for someone else’s shitty behavior.
