A hairdresser who complained her New Year’s Eve meal was ruined by someone having a HEART ATTACK has reportedly been sacked.
Holly Jones posted a furious message on the Facebook page of Kilroy’s Bar and Grill in Indianapolis claiming her night had been “ruined by watching a dead person wheeled out from an overdose.”
She fumed that the manager had “told us someone dying was more important than us being there making us feel like our business didn’t matter”.
Bar manager Chris Burton wrote a withering reply to Jones , which went viral on social media and drew attention to her gobsmacking rant.
He pointed out that the victim was in fact an elderly woman who had suffered a heart attack.
In his acid-tongued response, Burton told Jones: “I’m glad to hear you won’t be coming back to Kilroy’s because we wouldn’t want anyone as cold-hearted and nasty as you returning.”
Jones had recently started working for Serenity Salon, in Fishers, Indianapolis.
The hairdressing salon posted a statement on its Facebook page shortly after the incident, condemning the behaviour of its employee and vowing to take action.
The salon said Jones’ post on Kilroy’s Facebook page “in no way represents the views of Serenity Salon or any of our staff”.
It added: “We are saddened by the events that took place that evening and will continue to pray for the woman who suffered a heart attack at this establishment on New Year’s Eve.”
Serenity Salon later confirmed to MailOnline that Jones had been sacked.
Jones complained that her group had spent more than $700 at the restaurant and had an issue with their bill when staff walked away from them to help the woman, WTHR reported.
She sarcastically wrote: “I guess allowing a Junkie in the building to overdose on your property is more important then paying customers who are spending a lot of money.”
She also claimed the waitress had sworn at her and had been a “complete b***h to us all night”.
Burton pulled no punches in his reply, which has now gone viral, branding Jones “disgusting” and saying the member of staff had been left in tears.
He said the elderly woman had been dining with her husband and son when she suffered a heart attack and had to have her shirt opened on the floor of the restaurant so paramedics could work on her.
He added that the lady had survived and shared a GoFundMe page set up by the victim’s daughter, which has already attracted donations of more than $3,000.
Jones has since removed her post and deleted her Facebook account, but not before screen shots were taken of the exchange.
Burton has since urged customers not to troll other Holly Joneses listed in Indiana and urged diners to “just be nice”.
