Waffle House Customer Allegedly Shoots, Kills Server After Being Asked Not to Smoke [Update]

In Depth

Hey guys, just here to brighten your fucking weekend, because we needed more good news about murderous, heavily-armed shitheads right now. Good times.

Via WLOX, according to police, former firefighter Johnny Mount (who is the motherfucker you’re currently being forced to look at, for which I apologize) walked into a Biloxi, Mississippi Waffle House while smoking around 1 AM Friday morning. This was an issue, as customers are not allowed to smoke inside the restaurant. An employee only identified as “Julie” told Mount this, after which an argument ensued. Mount then allegedly pulled out a 9mm handgun and shot Julie in the head. She was transported to the hospital, where she succumbed to her wounds.

Waffle House issued the following public statement:

This senseless tragedy is a shock for the Waffle House family. Julie was a friend to many as well as a valued member of the Waffle House team. She will be greatly missed. Our prayers are with her family, friends, co-workers and customers.

Mount himself apparently didn’t leave the scene, and was arrested when police arrived. He has been charged with first-degree murder, and is being held on $2 million bond.

Tell us again how guns aren’t the problem, and how Americans should have every right to bring a weapon into a fucking restaurant. Say that to us one more fucking time.

Edit: The victim’s name was apparently Julie Brightwell. There appears to be a GoFundMe set up to pay for her funeral expenses, because Waffle House won’t. This is not surprising when one considers that according to several people on the GoFundMe, they didn’t re-open “a few hours” after the shooting (which would be bad enough), but 45 minutes after.

Jesus, Waffle House. What the fuck is wrong with you?
