Worker calls police on Black woman staying at hotel

WILLIAMSTON, N.C. (AP) — A worker at a North Carolina hotel has been fired after she called police on a Black woman and her child who were guests there and swimming in the pool. The Charlotte Observer reports the woman was using the pool at the Hampton Inn in Williamston when an employee approached her asking for proof that they were guests. A Hampton by Hilton official said the chain has zero tolerance for racism and discrimination of any kind. An Instagram post also said the worker who called the police was “no longer employed” and that the company apologized directly to the guest and her family.
