The Waffle House employee holding a baby while she worked didn’t just take heat online, but an online scammer also made up a backstory about the incident for financial gain … TMZ has learned.
As you may know … a TikTok of the Waffle House worker went viral last weekend, because she was holding a baby while it appeared she was helping the cooks prepare meals.
In researching the incident, a person contacted us claiming to be the employee and gave us a tragic backstory explaining why she was holding the child in the video — claiming the baby was the child of her dead brother.
This person posing as the employee also told us she was suspended for a week by Waffle House … all of which we now know is NOT TRUE.
Waffle House’s VP of Public Relations, Njeri Boss, tells TMZ … they investigated the TikTok video and “have determined that the media portrayals and social media posts are not accurate.”
