A Holiday Inn employee who was harassed and filmed by a rude customer over a reservation error has received overwhelming support online.
Caleb is the autistic man seen having a mental breakdown in a viral video recorded by an irate Holiday Inn customer.
The rude customer was ejected from the hotel for harassing other hotel employees.
The video went viral after Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed posted it on his Twitter page, and accused Caleb of being “racist”.
A YouTube vlogger raised over $41,000 for Caleb on GoFundMe.
The vlogger who created the GoFundMe account criticized Tariq and referred to him as a repressed homosexual because of his rude responses to Black women on the app Clubhouse.
The women dragged Tariq and told him he was “cancelled” for his insensitive treatment of a man who was clearly in distress.
After quitting his job, Caleb took to Reddit.com to explain what happened.
“While I’ve now quit this position (my management supported me, and told me I’m welcome back. The guest was ejected from the hotel for escalating issues with staff and the owners.)
I do have mental disorders. I suffer from BPD and schizo-affective disorders. What this fine, 5’5” bald gentleman behind the camera DIDN’T record was the fact that he called me a F**GOT for an associates mistake.
He was aggressive, and fishing for a reaction. He sure got it; and I’m glad this was a wake up call for me to stop slaving away for corporations who do not care about you at all, or the guests.”
