Trussville Dunkin’ Donuts Craigslist ‘hacked,’ ad goes up asking for ‘white’ employees

By Gary Lloyd

TRUSSVILLE — A Trussville Dunkin’ Donuts job listing posted on the Birmingham Craigslist website asking for “young personable white people who can listen” is the result of a hack, according to the company.

The ad was posted Sunday with the headline “Cooks, cashiers and time to make the donuts (Trussville).”

The ad in part states, “No more cry babies or welfare chasers!!!” and asks to not waste time “with non experienced people from center point. If your from center point apply at that location please.” 

“We are aware of the Craigslist ad in question, and upon following up with our local franchisee learned that their Craigslist account had been hacked,” Dunkin’ Donuts said in a statement. “The ad in question was not posted by our franchisee. Dunkin’ Donuts and our franchisee contacted Craigslist to have the ad removed.”

The ad appears to have been removed late Wednesday afternoon.

Dunkin’ Brands Group Public Relations Manager Justin Drake said he believes the ad was not posted by a current employee.

“While we are currently working with our franchisee to investigate who may have been responsible for the post, our franchisee has no reason to believe it is a current employee,” Drake said.
