Calls to boycott Waffle House grow louder

Calls to boycott Waffle House grew louder Friday. It comes after a video surfaced which appears to show a police officer choking a black man outside a North Carolina restaurant last weekend.

The video from Warsaw, North Carolina appears to show the man in his "prom attire" being choked during the altercation with the officer.

Anthony Wall, 21, said he had just taken his 16-year-old sister to the prom when he got into an argument with waffle house staff. That is when he said Waffle House employees called the police. Minutes later he was in an altercation with the officer.

Wall admits he was wrong for the argument inside the restaurant but said the officer's response was extreme.

The police chief and the district attorney's office there are investigating.

Thursday evening, Dr. Bernice King weighed in on the issue. She took to Twitter to encourage her followers to boycott Waffle House until the chain commits to a discussion on racism and employee training.
