May 9 - baristas play young dolph "get paid" - get fired after being snitched on

Two baristas at a Duke University coffee shop were asked to resign from their positions on Monday after a school official complained about rap music played at the location — and allegedly called for their termination, according to reports.

Britni Brown and Kevin Simmons were working at Joe Van Gogh in Durham, North Carolina, on Friday when Larry Moneta, Duke’s vice president of student affairs, entered and ordered, Indy Week reported. Young Dolph’s 2016 rap song “Get Paid” was playing over the speaker, and Moneta immediately approached Brown at the register to complain, according to the site.

“Harassing is definitely the word I would use,” Simmons claimed to Indy Week. “He was verbally harassing her.”

Brown immediately turned off the song — which features numerous expletives — and apologized repeatedly, but the damage had already been done, Indy Week reported. About 10 minutes later, Brown reportedly received a call from the shop’s owner, saying that Robert Coffey, executive director of dining services, had called about the rap song, according to the outlet.

In a Monday meeting with Amanda Wiley, of Joe Van Gogh’s human resources department, Brown and Simmons were let go. “Duke University has instructed us to terminate the employees that were working that day,” Wiley said, according to Indy Week.


Wiley offered the pair the option to resign, the outlet reported. It is unclear whether Brown and Simmons took the offer.

Neither Moneta nor Coffey immediately responded to a request for comment from PEOPLE. Joe Van Gogh also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

However, in an email statement to The Duke Chronicle, Moneta said the decision to terminate the employees’ contracts was made by the coffee shop’s management. He said he was shocked to hear lyrics that he “found quite inappropriate for a working environment that serves children among others.”

“I expressed my objections to the staff with whom I’ve always had a cordial relationship. I insisted on paying for my purchase and left the store,” he continued in the statement. “I then contacted the director of Duke Dining to express my concerns and that was the end of my involvement.”

Brown and other employees at the coffee shop have told Indy Week that they were not aware of any store policies regarding music. Managers and other employees at the shop told Indy Week that neither Brown nor Simmons had any record of workplace misconduct.

In the past, Moneta has opposed efforts to restrict hate speech. Brown, a black woman, suggested to Wiley that her termination was partially motivated by her race, according to Indy Week. She said that firing Simmons, a white man, despite his lack of involvement, was simply an effort to hide any discrimination.

“For [Simmons] to be fired because of this, it is not fair,” Brown told Wiley. “I feel like you guys were trying to cover it up as to make it not look discriminatory for firing a person of color.”

No disciplinary actions or reprimands? Someone was out to get them fired. Sure I hate this corn ball pop hop but I'd just ask them not to play it and if I was their manager I'd give them a warning. Nobody was hurt and notthing of value was lost. This was stupid.

I’ve never heard of anyone being fired without any prior warning or violations and not violating any store policy

One incident shouldn’t cost you a job

NC is an at will state , meaning you can be fired lawfully for any reason that is not outlined in terms of employment contract or against law.

Dont nobody give a fu*k about "fair"

Welcome to NC, a right to work state. You don't need a warning or even a reason to be fired here.

I dont listen to music and i tell my workers dont disturb people in a professional setting. Say for example i work at a apartment complex and we going from apartment to apartment one worker was walking around with a apeaker in his pocket blasting cuss words. I said people dont pay thousand dollars month rent to live here to be bothered with what u want to listen to. Turn the sh*t off or go hoe

Baristas at starbucks can play Starbucks playlist music or their own music.

this female I know works at one and they play whatever they want to play, just an up tight fu*kboy with nothing better to do decided to make a phone call because he heard n*gga a couple of times while ordering his green tea.

could've been uncomfortable or 2 mins and went on about his day, but he went out of his way to call the owner to get two kids who are probably paying their way through college fired.

and blasting music while doing walk through's is completely different than playing your music at a starbucks.

not even sure why you tried to juxtapose the two.

Ive never been to starbucks but i can see from a professional standpoint how playing music with cuss words can get u terminated.

Let me ask u this , if that employee cussed in front of the customers could he get terminated ?

I fu*ked her so good, she got up and started cooking
Double R, parked in my motherfu*king front yard
Trap jumping like the motherfu*king Million Man March
If she ain't got a fat a*s, the she can't get up in this car

If you a grown man and can't listen to music without being a dummy, the music isn't the problem. Some rap is infact poison for children and the youth, so is Sponge Bob, Teen Titans Go and a whole lot of other music that isn't rap...but execs tell you, its your culture..sham indeed. That said, it's not appropriate to play heavily explicit music at work unless it's closing time, and you cleaning up. A warning would have been in order, he likely called for their jobs on a power trip partially fueld by his racism, rap, plus black girl, with white boy wing man been making dear ol dad mad since '91..
