On Monday, a women named Amanda Jean Braun posted a lengthy Facebook post detailing a troubling incident that reportedly took place at her local Outback Steakhouse restaurant in Glen Burnie, Maryland. . .
Shortly after their meals arrived, writes Braun, a man who identified himself as the manager came to the table and stated that he had “received a noise complaint” about Braun’s 4-year-old son.
My son Killian was born with a neurological disorder that affects his speech called Childhood Apraxia of Speech. This disorder affects Killian in many ways especially communication and behavioral. He is a very energetic kid with much to say, however, when he speaks, his words are unclear.
Despite noting that he felt uneasy with his role in the situation, the manager reportedly asked the family to complete their dinner and leave the restaurant. He then offered them a $20 gift card “as an apology,” according to Braun, who added that she won’t return as she doesn’t want to “subject [her] son and the rest of [her] family to that type of discrimination.” . . .
Speaking with local ABC affiliate WJLA, Braun said that she’s no longer angry, but sad about the way her son will be treated going forward: “The anger has subsided and I’m left with sadness for my son and his future struggles of being in public.” (Read more from “Family Allegedly Asked to Leave Outback Steakhouse After Receiving Noise Complaint About Disabled Son” HERE)
