Applebees employee gets fired, returns with diss track, and now I’m putting him in the Philly Chain Restaurant Hall of Fame with Allen Iverson
Well, this week was absolutely brutal. The Philadelphia 76ers couldn’t beat depleted Miami Heat or Brooklyn Nets teams, the Eagles game has been rescheduled to Tuesday thanks to COVID-19, and this guy got fired from his job at Applebees.
I’m not sure if this is a Philadelphia video, but I’m going to have to assume it is since Barstool Philly ripped it from someones TikTok account. Shown below, we have an Applebees employee filming his now former coworker returning to the restaurant with a speaker and a diss track after being fired from his job.
This guy rolls in while everyone is trying to quietly enjoy their 2-for-$20 meals at Applebees with a loud speaker and his own diss track. The hook is “Fuck Applebees” and he definitely has a few verses in there calling out employees and his boss. Truly an all-time move by this guy.
Anytime Applebees is brought up in the same conversation as Philadelphia, one thing comes to mind. Back in 2014, Allen Iverson got so stoned he ended up in a ditch outside of Applebees.
BroBible had the full story, posted below:
The 46-year-old Hall Of Famer did, however, pull the curtain back on some of his wildest weed experiences, including a scarring night at a Virginia Applebee’s in 2014 with a man he describes as “Top Muhfuckin Smoker.”
Iverson and “Top Muhfuckin Smoker” headed to an old refuge of Iverson’s, Applebee’s, to get some grub before a party appearance. They lit up outside the restaurant and Iverson started buzzing. “I’m alright! I was fine! Fine like a muhfucka. But, then, I just felt it, dog,” Iverson says, grabbing his chest and wobbling like a penguin to demonstrate.
Iverson told his buddy he needed to recalibrate, so he embarked on a quest to find a Corona beer (apparently they did not serve Corona at Applebee’s).
“I start walkin’ up an interstate. A interstate! N-gga, I’m on the interstate wit cars flying by just walkin’ down the road trine find a bar!” He got kicked out of the bar. Why? Because Allen Iverson doesn’t carry ID in his home state. As he told the bartender that night: “I don’t have no muhfuckin’ ID.”
Iverson then sauntered all the way back to his car in the Applebee’s parking lot where he started thinking about “all the worst shit in the world.”
The door was closed and I was waitin’ for the door to open and a muhfucka to kill me. At one point I even laughed, ‘like, damn, I’m goin out like this?!’” Frightened, he left the car. “Bout 10 minutes later, I swear to God, I woke up and I was laying down in a ditch.” What? “In a ditch!,” he says. “I’m in a muhfuckin’ ditch! I’m lookin around for people who see me gettin’ up off the ground. I sat back in the car and I said, ‘This is it, man.’ I heard a car burning rubber and then BOOM. I was back. I was myself.”
Iverson was never a stranger to chain restaurants and at one point, made the TGI Friday’s in Philadelphia one of the most popular in the country and was rumored to spend $30,000-$40,000 one night at the restaurant.
“It’s a down to Earth restaurant. I like doing things like that. Unless I’m like taking my girl out. I’ll take her to the real expensive, you know, exotic restaurants. Other than that, when I’m hanging with my friends, we just like to go to a spot where we can chill out. And we like the food there, so it’s always been love at Friday’s.”
Iverson used to go to TGI Fridays with friends and teammates and turn the restaurant into what he described as “Club Fridays” and felt that was the most real and authentic way to interact with the people of Philadelphia, becoming great friends with the employees and regulars who worked at the City Ave location in Philly.
I have no problem throwing the Applebees diss track guy in an article with Allen Iverson since they are now both Philadelphia chain restaurant Hall of Famers.
