*Well here’s a rather curious story about racial discrimination. We guess you could label it as intra-racial discrimination. We guess.

That’s because comedian Ricky Smith says a black Olive Garden waitress told his group “she doesn’t like serving blacks.”

The funnyman says the incident happened late Tuesday night; he was asked to leave the Italian themed restaurant (in Ohio) after requesting a new server.

“Honestly am at a lost for words. Not leaving until the cops come and physically remove us,” Smith tweeted.

He and his friends asked for a different waitress, he said, but were told their “options were to have her as our waitress or leave.”

Smith, who founded the Random Acts of Kindness Everywhere (RAKE) project, then said his group went out into the parking lot of the Olive Garden, but refused to leave until the restaurant called the police.

Olive Garden meanwhile has responded to Smith’s tweets, asking him to direct message the account with more information.

An Olive Garden spokesperson told TMZ that the waitress and manager have been placed on leave while they investigate. Olive Garden has reportedly reached out to Smith to apologize and invite him back.
