Waffle House “Avenger” Blacklisted After Viral Brawl

With quick reaction time and dexterity gained through thousands and thousands of hours working at Waffle House during her 4-year tenure at the company, the Waffle House Avenger managed to deflect a chair thrown at her by a patron.

The sheer chaos of the original video clip combined with Hallie’s big moment has made her chair go viral, with many comparing her skill level to that of the Avengers and elevating her as a Marvel superhero.

According to Halie, they were very busy that night. He was trying his best to keep up with the orders despite being in short supply. However, due to insufficient resources to keep up with the restaurant at full capacity, one section has been closed to continue running as smoothly as possible. Halie claims that the people who fought her tried to sit in this enclosure even though they were told not to.

“We tell them, ‘Hey, this section is closed, if you could wait for a table?’ They say, “Nah, we’re fine. We’ll sit here.”

Hallie says she ignored them and tried to focus on the other customers in the restaurant. After a few minutes, these customers stood up and began to crowd around the counter. He refused them service, which they didn’t take too well.

“I was telling them I was going to kick them out because they were rude. I will not cook your food, you are rude to me.’

Things got out of hand when patrons started climbing over her counter and into her kitchen. “We can do whatever we can, legally, within our means, whatever means necessary, to remove you or ensure our safety. Either that means taking one of the cast iron pans and bashing your head in with it or beating the f*** out of you when you fall. If you touch my floor, it’s open.”

This led to Hallie going viral as the Waffle House Avenger, Waffle House Wendy, The Last Chairbender and various other monikers. Enough so that artists started making interpretations of the moment and the internet went to work making it the best meme edits they could.

Hallie recounted the events of the evening, including her chair tipping over and some details of the match. She even revealed that, at one point, she tried to make sure one of the people throwing things at her didn’t lose their wallet.

“I look up after the match and I see a wallet. I grab it and say, “Really, is that your wallet? Deadass, I don’t want anyone to lose their s***. So I said, “Is your wallet here?” And he was like, ‘Nah,’ and then he threw another plate at me.”

The Waffle House location had to be closed for a few hours for police to handle and clear the place. Hallie was reprimanded for throwing a sugar shaker at one of the customers, but not fired.

He continued to work at that Waffle House location for a while before leaving, citing that he felt “uncomfortable” working there. According to Halli’s account, the fight happened long before the video went viral.

In the video, he said he hadn’t even eaten Waffle House in “about 8 months,” meaning the viral video could have been months before it happened. He noted, however, that Waffle House is “a great company, they take care of their employees.”

Despite being told she was “always welcome” after leaving that store, Halie discovered she was blacklisted by the company when she tried to apply at another location.

“I can’t work for a Waffle House again. I tried to work for someone else sometime earlier this year and found out I was blacklisted.” However, she said it’s possible the original location she worked at will hire her. Halle made it clear that she still loves the company she’s worked with for four years, despite how things ended.
