A police officer’s wife from Spring, Texas was refused service at a local supermarket because of the shirt she was wearing, in support of law enforcement.
The woman said she did not want to disclose her last name, but wanted to get her story out there, after her “police lives matter” shirt sparked quite a scene last week at Kroger.
“She made me feel ashamed to have the shirt on and I don’t appreciate that,” Meredith said.
A teenage cashier reportedly stepped away from the register, saying the shirt that Meredith had on was a “slap in the face to her.” The employee was later overheard telling a co-worker that she was doing ‘everything she could not to cry’.
The Kroger employee did not speak to Meredith directly about it however, and she let someone else handle the rest of her transaction. Meredith says she complained to the grocery store chain about the incident multiple times, but has not yet received a response.
She says she doesn’t want the worker to get fired but thinks her experience should serve as a lesson to others.
A representative from Kroger told ABC 13 that the “matter is being looked into and the review is not yet complete so they cannot comment.”
